    KEY FEATURES OF STEAM ENGINES

    KEY FEATURES OF STEAM ENGINES Steam engine works with steam made in the boiler. It converts heat energy of steam into mechanical motion and then into electrical energy with the help of a generator coupled with the steam engine. The Rankine cycle is used in the analysis of steam engine. The Rankine cycle is a […]

    Thermodynamics: Losses in steam turbines

    Thermodynamics: Losses in steam turbines LOSSES IN STEAM TURBINES There are two main types of losses in a steam turbine. (a) Internal losses (Due to flow of steam inside the turbine) (b) External losses (Losses not concerned with steam) The internal losses in steam turbines may be enumerated as follows: Losses due to steam Leakage (i)  Steam leakage in […]

    STEAM TURBINES–Definition and comparison with Reciprocating Steam Engine

    STEAM TURBINES–Definition and comparison with Reciprocating Steam Engine STEAM TURBINES Steam turbine is a prime mover which gets its rotary motion from the gradual change in momentum of steam jet by simply changing the direction of the jet which is coming at high velocity from nozzles and striking the blades of the turbine. ADVANTAGES OF […]
