electrical generation

Hi,

I'm trying to find the maximum electrical power generation possible from a rankine cycle. I've calculated the power output from the turbine, but I'm not sure how to couple this to a theoretical generator to calculate electrical power.

Any advise would be appreciated, or a key word I may be missing when looking on the internet for the equations.

Kindest regards

You are having trouble because you misunderstand the basic rule of eletrical power supply.

The power delivered is determined by the Load not by the generator.

Start there and put some flesh on the bones by specifying the detail.

Electrical power - AC or DC?

Frequency ?

Maximum power transfer theorem?

No of phases?

Nature of load?

Number of generators?
