Rankine cycles are a thermodynamic process that turn heat into mechanical work. They're often employed in generating electrical power, with high pressure steam used to rotate a turbine.

In this application, we will:
  • define a procedure that calculates the cycle efficiency as a function of the pump outlet pressures
  • and then find the pump outlet pressures that maximize the efficiency of the cycle.
