    STEAM TURBINES AND STEAM ENGINES

    STEAM TURBINES AND  STEAM ENGINES  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 STEAM TURBINES OVER […]

    TURBINE THEORY

    Turbine Theory TURBINE It is a device to produce power first by generating rotary motion by consuming kinetic energy of a high speed of the working fluid and simultaneously running the coupled generator. In most of the cases a high velocity jet is produced which strikes the blades, buckets or vanes of the turbine rotating […]

    Turbine

     Turbine Definition of a turbine It is a device to convert potential/kinetic energy of a fluid into motion (rotation energy/Mechanical energy). Types of Turbines (a) Impulse turbine—In this, total pressure drop occurs in nozzles (fixed blades) giving a high velocity jet at the outlet of the nozzle. The impulse of this jet runs the turbine. […]

     STEAM TURBINES   Q. Why is super-heated steam used in any steam turbine? All types of steam turbines use super-heated steam to avoid condensation, Due to condensation; there will be sudden decrease in velocity because of large volume reduction in changing steam into water. The ratio of volume reduction is of the order of 700 times. […]
