turbine inlet temperature

turbine inlet temperature
The temperature taken in front of the first-stage turbine nozzle vanes. This is the most critical temperature within the engine and is controlled by regulating the amount of fuel flow into the engine.

The heat exchanger and condenser pressures are taken to be 3000 and 400 kPa, respectively, while the turbine inlet temperature (or heat exchanger exit) is taken to be 150[degrees]C, which is 15[degrees]C lower than the geothermal water temperature at the heat exchanger inlet.
