Course overview

The steam turbine is the workhorse of the power plant. Its ability to drive the large generators found in fired-boiler, combined-cycle, and nuclear power plants makes the steam turbine crucial to electrical power production. Steam from the power plant is provided to the steam turbine at a high temperature and pressure, The steam contains enough energy to rotate the turbine and generator connected to it inside the turbine.

The Steam Turbine Design training course explains the role the steam turbine plays in power plant operations. This online training course discusses:
