Rankine Cycle, Mechanical Engineering

In a nuclear power plant saturated steam at 30 bar enters a h.p. turbine and expands isentrophically to a pressure at which its quality is 0.841. At this pressure the steam is passed through a moisture superator which removes all the liquid. Saturated vapour leaves the seperator and is expanded isentrophically to 0.04 bar in i.p. turbine, while the saturated liquid leaving the seperator is returned via a feed pump to the boiler the condensate leaving the condenser at 0.04 bar is also returned to the boiler via a second feed pump. Calculate the cycle efficiency and turbine outlet quality taking in to account the feed pump term. Recalculate the same quantities for a cycle with the same boiler and condenser pressures but without moisture seperation.
