What is Rankine Cycle - Steam Turbine Cycle - Definition

The net heat added is given by Q add = H 3 H 2; Isentropic expansion (expansion in a steam turbine) Steam from the boiler expands adiabatically from state 3 to state 4 in a steam turbine to produce work and then is discharged to the condenser (partially condensed). The steam does work on the surroundings (blades of the turbine) and loses an amount of enthalpy equal to the work that leaves the system.
