Steam Turbine Design Process, Performance Estimation, and Determination of Blade Loads
1011102103030010111061010909Steam Turbine Design Process, Performance Estimation, and Determination of Blade LoadsTurbine blades only exist to convert the heat energy in steam to useful shaft work. In this context, when we use the term steam turbine performance, we are really discussing how (and how well) these blades convert energy in steam (known as enthalpy, or heat energy) to shaft power. In a specific turbine for a specific application, the final quantity, size, and shape of the blades are the result of a design pro…
