What are the stages of the rankine cycle?

1:Isobaric heat transfer:


Explain vapour quality in a rankine cycle and how is it calculated

Vapour quality is the proportion of vapour that is dry to vapour that is wet. The symbol is X. 

This is calculated by

X = (total enthalpy - fluid enthalpy)

Latent heat of vapourisation


X= (h-hf) /hfg
