Methods of increase in thermal economy of power plants are well-known. Let’s consider the opportunities for power plant efficiency increase due to application of traditional methods. Heat and nuclear power plants operate under the Rankin cycle. Thermal efficiency ηt of the Rankin cycle significantly depends on a number of factors and, firstly, on initial steam parameters before the turbine: pressure p0 and temperature t0.
