    Q.5 a) It is observed that a run-of-river plant operates as peak load plant with a wcekly loadfactor of 25 % all this capacity being firm capacity. Determine the minimum flow inthe river so that power plant may act as a base load plant .the following data issupplicd:Rated installed capacity of generating plant = 10 MW, operating head = 16 m, plantefficiency = 86 %.If the stream flow is 15 m'ls, Find the daily load factor of theplant.

    b) Explain with help of neat diagram the construction and working of a nuclear powerplant.

    c) Explain the concept of Fluidized Bed Combustion (FBC) with neat sketch in detail.

    Q.6 a) The air in the gas turbinc plant is taken in L.P. compressor at 293 K and l.05 bar andafter compression it is passed through the intercooler whcre its tcmperature isreduced to 300 K .the cooled air is further compressed in H.P. unit and then passed inthe combustion chamber where its temperature is increased to 750 c by burning thefuel. The combustion products expand in H.P. turbine which runs the compressor andfurther expansion is continued in L.P. turbine which runs the alternator. The gasescoming out from L.P. turbine are used for heating the incoming air from H.P.compressor and then expandcd to atmospherc.Pressure ratio of each compressor ~ 2, isentropic efficiency of each compressor stage~ 82 %, isentropic efficiency of each turbine stage = 82 %, effectiveness of heatexchanger = 0.72, air flow = 16 kg/s, calorific value of fuel ~ 42000 kJlkg K, c, (forgas) = 1.0 kJlkg K, Cp (for gas) = I. I5 kJlkg K, y (for air) =1.4, y (for gas) =1.33.Neglecting the mechanical, pressure and heat losses of the system and fuel mass also.Determine the following:i)The power outputii)Thermal efficiencyiii)Specific fuel consumption
