Rankine Open Cycle has an Ideal steam reheat cycle where steam enters the high pressure turbine at 3 MPa and 400C and then expands to 0.8 MPa. It's then reheated at constant pressure of 0.8 MPa to 400C and expands to 10kPa in the low-pressure turbine. Each turbine stage is entropic efficiency of 85% FWH is open T-S diagram for cycle?

What is thermal efficiency and the moisture content of the steam leaving the low-pressure turbine?
