Question
4) If ethane is used as the fuel for the Brayton cycle, conduct an analysis of its complete combustion
with 30 vol% excess air that would be required to supply 60 MW to the cycle. Also, determine the
amount of fuel consumption and the composition of the flue gas (dry basis).
Clearly state any assumptions.
