Summary and Info
This book presents a survey of modern wet-steam turbines, addressing both full-speed and half-speed units and will benefit owners and operators of nuclear power plants, university professors and engineering students. This book explains in clear, but detailed language the design features of the world’s leading wet-steam turbine manufacturers, including the subtleties of operation of these complex components. It also gives readers comprehensive background on typical repairs and maintenance planning. Discussions include turbines between 200 and 1,500 MW and greater, operated at nuclear power plants with light-water and heavy-water reactors, and their advanced modifications. While this book focuses on the understanding of turbine design, it also covers the peculiarities of operation, spotting possible imperfections, and the distinct advantages of refurbishing older turbines to gain increased output, greater reliability and efficiency. Readers will gain knowledge of design decisions by world’s main turbine producers, as well as possibilities for improvement of aging turbines currently in service.
