Photochemical reactor modeling: a case-study problem. Although radiation is important in heat transfer, an analogous model can be used in the design of photochemical reactors. The modeling of these reactors….
Determine The necessary flow rate in the stream if the temperature in the cooling water is only allowed to rise 10∘C in temperature.
Approximately two-thirds of the energy content of uranium fuel entering a 2,000 MW nuclear power plant is removed by condenser cooling water which is withdrawn from an adjacent stream. The flow upstream of the nuclear power plant is 200 m3/s and the temperature in the stream is 19∘C. Perform an energy balance on the nuclear power plant to answer the following questions and draw a simplified schematic of the process. Determine:
a. The energy input to the nuclear power plant.
b. The necessary flow rate in the stream if the temperature in the cooling water is only allowed to rise 10∘C in temperature.
c. The temperature in the stream after the heated cooling water is released back into the stream.
