Steam Turbine Design
- Describe the energy conversion taking place in a steam turbine
- Explain the difference between impulse and reaction blading, and identify where each is found in a steam turbine
- Discuss the design characteristics of a steam turbine casing
- Explain the difference between thrust bearings and journal bearings, and identify where each is found in a typical steam turbine
- Recall the steam flow path through a high, intermediate, and low-pressure turbine
The steam turbine is an essential part of all combined-cycle and fired-boiler power plants. Generators rely on the rotating motion to produce electrical power. The Steam Turbine Design training course describes the basic components in a typical steam engine and explains their purpose. It also traces the steam flow path through a typical steam turbine.
When you complete this lesson, you will be able to describe the basic components that comprise a typical steam turbine and explain the purpose of each. In addition, you will be able to trace the steam flow path through a typical steam turbine.
