Steam Engine - Efficiency
... temperature range the cycle can operate over is quite small in steam turbines, turbine entry temperatures are typically 565°C (the creep limit of stainless steel) and ... This low turbine entry temperature (compared with a gas turbine) is why the Rankine cycle is often used as a bottoming cycle in combined-cycle gas turbine power ... required by the pump consumes only 1% to 3% of the turbine power and contributes to a much higher efficiency for a real cycle ...

Famous quotes containing the word entry:

    When women can support themselves, have entry to all the trades and professions, with a house of their own over their heads and a bank account, they will own their bodies and be dictators in the social realm.
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902)
