STEAM TURBINE: GENERAL
The 210 MW KWU turbine is condensing, tandem compounded, reheat type and singleshaft machine. In has separate high pressure, intermediate and low-pressure parts. The HP part is a single cylinder and IP & LP parts are double flow cylinders. Theturbine rotors are rigidly coupled with each other and with generator rotor.HP turbine has throttle control. The steam is admitted through two combined stop andcontrol valves. The lines leading from HPT exhaust to reheater have got two cold reheat swing check NRVs. The steam from reheater has got two cold reheat swing check NRVs. The steam from reheater is admitted to IP turbine through two combined stopand control valves. Two crossover pipes connect IP and LP cylinder.
210 MW KWU TURBINE
The entire turbine is provided with reaction blading. The moving blades of HPT, LPT and front rows of LPT have inverted T roots and are shrouded. The last stages of LPT are twisted; drop forged moving blades with fir-tree roots. Highly stressed guide bladesof HPT and IPT have inverted T roots. The other guide blades have inverted L-roots with riveted shrouding.
The TG unit is mounted on six bearings HPT rotor is mounted on two bearings, a double wedged journal bearing at the front and combined thrust/journal bearingadjacent to front IP rotor coupling. IP and LP rotors have self-adjusting circular journal bearings. The bearing pedestals of LPT are fixed on base plates where as HPT front andrear bearing pedestals are free to move axially.Pedestals at machine level support the brackets at the sides of HPT. In axial direction,HP & IP parts are connected with the pedestals by means of a casing guide. Radial
