#### Project Highlights

##### Who can take up this project
• This project is great for undergraduate students to get a knowledge on  the how to make a Matlab Script for Mechanical Engineering Concepts.
• If you are a working professional, this project plays a vital role in Power Plant Engineering to optimize the design of the thermal power plant.
##### You will be using Matlab

MATLAB is a high-performance language for technical computing. It integrates computation, visualization, and programming in an easy-to-use environment where problems and solutions are expressed in familiar mathematical notation.

## Importance of Rankine Cycle

The Rankine cycle is the fundamental operating cycle of all steam power plants and steam engines where an operating fluid is continuously evaporated and condensed.

It will convert the heat to mechanical work while changing the phase of the operating fluid, this project helps to design the power plant operating conditions(pressure,temperature,enthalpy and entropy)

by which the plant efficiency can be increased and specific steam consumption can be decreased.

• You will learn how to import data from XSTEAM (steam table)
• Matlab Scripting for Engineering Concepts
• Calculation of Thermal efficiency and Specific Steam consumption.
