[TeslaTurbine] Disc Shape
Picture two chambers separated by a pipe.
In the left chamber heat
and water are introduced and the water transitions to steam. In the
right-hand chamber heat is rejected, the steam is condensed, and liquid water
is extracted. Because of the huge expansion/contraction involved in the
phase changes, the two processes going on simultaneously should result in a
high-velocity flow of saturated steam in the connecting pipe.
energy is extracted from the connecting flow, the heat rejected at the sink is
equal to the energy supplied to the left chamber minus the usual parasitic
cluster of viscous losses, etc.
If, however, you run the (saturated)
flow through a turbine- the shaft work extracted can ONLY come from a phase
change in the steam.
condensation/boiling temperature is a function of the pressure. If you
transition to steam then go through a turbine, the condensation pressure will be
lower and the condensation temp has to be lower. This makes the heat exchangers
larger as well I think.
