4. Supplementary firing in a Brayton-Rankine combined cycle is?
a) Good
b) Less effective
c) Very effective
d) None of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: Supplementary firing in a Brayton-Rankine combined cycle is less effective as there is no appreciable increase in overall efficiency due to this combined cycle.

5. What is the effect of Supplementary Firing on exhaust gas temperature?
a) exhaust gas temperature increases
b) exhaust gas temperature decreases
c) exhaust gas temperature remains steady
d) none of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: the effect of Supplementary Firing on exhaust gas temperature is that the exhaust gas temperature increases from 800 Degree Celsius – 900 Degree Celsius.

6. Maximum supplementary firing refers to __________
a) The maximum fuel that can be fired with the oxygen available in the gas turbine inlet
b) The maximum fuel that can be fired with the oxygen available in the gas turbine exhaust
c) The maximum fuel that cannot be fired with the oxygen available in the gas turbine inlet
d) None of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: Maximum supplementary firing refers to the maximum fuel that can be fired with the oxygen available in the gas turbine exhaust.

7. It is advantageous to use a Combustion chamber plant with maximum supplementary firing than Combustion Chamber installations.
a) True
b) False
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: As maximum supplementary firing is of no use when it comes to Combustion chamber installations hence, the above statement is false.
