j) What is Turbojet?

Section-B
2. What are the three methods of generating swirl in CI engine combustion chamber?
3. Explain the stages of combustion in a CI engine.
4. A gas turbine plant works between the fixed adiabatic temperature limits 3000°K and 900°K,  the absolute pressure limits being 1 kgf/cm2  and 4kgf/cm2. The isentropic efficiency of the  blower is 0.8 and that of turbine is 0.85. Estimate the actual thermal efficiency of the plant.  Calorific value is 10,000 kcal/kg.
5. The air enters the compressor of a gas turbine at atmospheric pressure and 30°C and is  compressed to 6kgf/cm2 with an isentropic efficiency of 85%. The turbine inlet temperature is  500°C. The isentropic efficiency of the turbine is 80%. Estimate the flow of air in kg/s for a net  h.p. of 2000.
6. What are the various methods which are used to improve the efficiency and output of a gas  turbine?
Section-C
7. Explain the working principle of centrifugal compressor with the help of h-s chart. What do you  mean by diffuser efficiency?

8. (a) The following data are given for a centrifugal compressor and it is required to find the  impeller tip diameter:
N = 1500 rpm, G=22.5 kg/sec, Ambient temperature = 21°C, Atmospheric pressure = 1  kgf/cm2 , pressure ratio = 4, adiabatic efficiency = 0.76, Double side impeller, slip factor = 0.9,  work input factor = 1.04. Assume inlet velocity of flow = exit flow from diffuser = 140 m/s.
(b) Discuss the surging in the case of centrifugal and axial flow compressor.

9. (a) Air at temperature of 15°C enters a gas turbine plant working at pressure ratio of 5.  Turbine inlet temperature is 800°C. Polytropic efficiency of compressor and turbine is 0.87.  Assume cp = 0.24 for air and gases and calorific value of fuel used = 10,000 kcal/kg of fuel.
Calculate overall efficiency and specific output.

(b) Differentiate between reciprocating and rotary compressor.
