(j) What is meant by overall efficiency of a turbine?
Section B Marks 5 each
2. Describe spring loaded safety valve with the help of a diagram.
3. A boiler produces 8.9 kg of steam per kg of coal from feed water at 45oC. The pressure of the steam
is 10.5 bar. And dryness fraction 0.96. What is equivalent evaporation from and at 100oC per kg of
4. Dry saturated steam at 3.5 bar having negligible velocity expands in a convergent nozzle to 1.3 bar
and dryness fraction 0.94.Calculate velocity of steam leaving nozzle.
5. What is compounding and its advantages? Describe briefly velocity compounding.
6. Describe the methods of attaching blades to turbine rotor.
