Steam Turbine
‡ A steam turbine is a mechanical device that extracts thermal energy from pressurized steam, and converts it into useful mechanical work.

where its pressure drops and its velocity increases. The steam does not expand as it flows through the moving blades. its pressure remains the same. 22 December 2010 7 . but its velocity decreases. As the steam flows through the moving blades. Steam expands as it passes through the nozzles.Impulse Turbines ‡ An impulse turbine uses the impact force of the steam jet on the blades to turn the shaft.

axially split.cylindrical .  The inner casing is attached in the horizontal and vertical planes in the barrel casing so that it can freely expand radially in all directions and axially from a fixed point (HP-inlet side).

Both are axially split and A double flow inner casing is supported in the outer casing and carries the guide blades.

LP Turbine Casing The LP turbine casing consists of a double flow unit and has a triple shell welded casing. is supported at four points on longitudinal beams.  Independent of the outer shell. is attached kinematically in the middle shell.  The shells are axially split and of rigid welded construction.  The inner shell taking the first rows of guide blades. the middle shell. 22 December 2010 20 .  Steam admitted to the LP turbine from the IP turbine flows into the inner casing from both sides.

which results in reduction of axial thrust.  In all the moving wheels. balancing holes are machined to reduce the pressure difference across them.Rotors HP Rotor:  The HP rotor is machined from a single Cr-Mo-V steel forging with integral discs.  First stage has integral shrouds while other rows have shroudings. rivetted to the blades are periphery. 22 December 2010 23 .

22 December 2010 25 .IP Rotor ‡ The IP rotor has seven discs integrally forged with rotor while last four discs are shrunk fit. ‡ The shaft is made of high creep resisting Cr-Mo-V steel forging while the shrunk fit disc are machined from high strength nickel steel forgings. ‡ Except the last two wheels. lashing wires have been provided in some stages. all other wheels have shrouding riveted at the tip of the blades. To adjust the frequency of the moving blades.

In the last two rows satellite strips are provided at the leading edges of the blades to protect them against wet steam erosion. ‡ Blades are secured to the respective discs by riveted fork root fastening. ‡ In all the stages lashing wires are providing to adjust the frequency of blades. 22 December 2010 26 .LP Rotor ‡ The LP rotor consists of shrunk fit discs a shaft. ‡ The shaft is a forging of Cr-Mo-V steel while the discs are of high strength nickel steel forgings.

BLADES  most costly element of turbine  blades fixed in stationary part are called guide blades/nozzles and those fitted in moving part are called rotating/working blades. 22 December 2010 27 .  blades have three main parts Aerofoil: working part Root Shrouds ‡ shroud are used to prevent steam leakage & to guide steam to next set of moving blades.

(2) Fir Tree or serrated roots .  Lacing wires are also used to dampen the vibration and to match frequencies in the longer blades. 22 December 2010 28 .BLADES  Three types of root arrangements are commonly used. They are (1) T-roots: for small blades.  Integral shroud for are used for shorter blades and shrunk fitting for larger blades.  Since in the reaction type machine the pressure drop also occurs across the moving blades it is necessary to provide effective sealing at the blade tips. (3) Fork and Pin root: for longer blades shrunk on disc type rotors.for longer blades.
