Effect of condenser pressure on the performance of an ideal Rankine cycle

Using EES software, investigate the effect of the condenser pressure on the performance
of a simple ideal Rankine cycle. Turbine inlet conditions of steam are maintained constant at 10 MPa and 550 oC while the condenser pressure is varied from 5 to 100 kPa. Determine the thermal efficiency of the cycle and plot it against the condenser pressure, and discuss the results.
