Theory of Turbine Turbine casing Rotor & Blades Sealing system & barring gear ESV’s, IV’s and CV’s Coupling and Bearing
Steam Turbine • A steam turbine is a mechanical device that extracts thermal energy from pressurized steam, and converts it into useful mechanical work.
Classification Pressure compounded Impulse turbine Velocity compounded
Impulse Turbines • An impulse turbine uses the impact force of the steam jet on the blades to turn the shaft. Steam expands as it passes through the nozzles, where its pressure drops and its velocity increases. As the steam flows through the moving blades, its pressure remains the same, but its velocity decreases. The steam does not expand as it flows through the moving blades.
Velocity compounded impulse turbine
Reaction Turbines • In the reaction turbine, the rotor blades themselves are arranged to form convergent nozzles. This type of turbine makes use of the reaction force produced as the steam accelerates through the nozzles formed by the rotor.

Turbine Casings HP Turbine Casing outer casing: a barrel-type without axial or radial flange. Barrel-type casing suitable for quick startup and loading. The inner casing--- cylindrical , axially split. 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).
HP Turbine Casing
IP Turbine Casing The casing of the IP turbine is split horizontally and is of double-shell construction. Both are axially split and A double flow inner casing is supported in the outer casing and carries the guide blades. Provides opposed double flow in the two blade sections and compensates axial thrust. • Steam after reheating enters the inner casing from Top & Bottom.
LP Turbine Casing The LP turbine casing consists of a double flow unit and has a triple shell welded casing. The shells are axially split and of rigid welded construction. The inner shell taking the first rows of guide blades, is attached kinematically in the middle shell. Independent of the outer shell, the middle shell, is supported at four points on longitudinal beams. Steam admitted to the LP turbine from the IP turbine flows into the inner casing from both sides.
LP Turbine Casing
Anchor Point of Turbine Purpose: Taking care of thermal expansions and contractions of the machine during thermal cycling. The fixed points of the turbine are as follows: • The bearing housing between the IP and LP turbines. • The rear bearing housing of the IP turbine. • The longitudinal beam of the I.P turbine. • The thrust bearing in rear bearing casing of H.P turbine.
Rotors HP Rotor: The HP rotor is machined from a single Cr-Mo-V steel forging with integral discs. In all the moving wheels, balancing holes are machined to reduce the pressure difference across them, which results in reduction of axial thrust. First stage has integral shrouds while other rows have shroudings, rivetted to the blades are periphery.
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 CrMo-V steel forging while the shrunk fit disc are machined from high strength nickel steel forgings. • Except the last two wheels, all other wheels have shrouding riveted at the tip of the blades. To adjust the frequency of the moving blades, lashing wires have been provided in some stages.
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 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. In the last two rows satellite strips are provided at the leading edges of the blades to protect them against wet steam erosion.
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. 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.
BLADES Three types of root arrangements are commonly used. They are (1) T-roots: for small blades; (2) Fir Tree or serrated roots - for longer blades; (3) Fork and Pin root: for longer blades shrunk on disc type rotors. Integral shroud for are used for shorter blades and shrunk fitting for larger blades. Lacing wires are also used to dampen the vibration and to match frequencies in the longer 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.
SEALING GLANDS • Steam is supplied to the sealing chamber at 1.03 to 1.05 Kg/sq.cm abs and at temperature 130 deg.C To 150 deg.C from the header. • Air steam mixture from the last sealing chamber is sucked out with the help of a special steam ejector to gland steam cooler. • Provision has been made to supply live steam at the front sealing of H.P. and I.P. rotor to control the differential expansion, when rotor goes under contraction during a trip or sharp load reduction.
BEARINGS: General bearing---6no.s Thrust bearing ---1no. Bearings are usually forced lubricated and have provision for admission of jacking oil
