A Techno-economically feasible model for large Power Plants…………..


Using the steam to make the Power !

  • Rotating the shaft is the ultimate goal of any power plant.

  • As you have probably noticed, from the text and pictures on Steam Generators, there is no shaft.

  • Which leads to the question:

    "now that you have all this super energized steam or Gas, how do you get work from it ? "

    A boilers / Combustor is only one part of a larger operation, granted, it's a large part but most important part of the operation is it's ability to apply all this steam power.


The Steam Turbine

  • The more modern method of extracting mechanical energy from thermal energy is the steam turbine.

  • Steam turbines have been the norm in various land based power plants for many years.

  • Motive power in a steam turbine is obtained by the rate of change in momentum of a jet of steam impinging on a curved blade which is free to rotate.

  • The steam is (partially or fully) expanded in a nozzle, resulting in the emission of a high/medium/low velocity jet.

  • This jet of steam impinges on the moving vanes or blades, mounted on a shaft.

  • Here it undergoes a change of direction and/or magnitude of motion which gives rise to a change in momentum and therefore a force.

Analysis of Simple Stationary Impulse Blade

  • Consider a stationary 180 degree curved blade.

  • A jet with a velocity Vi incidence on the blade.

  • The blade deflects the jet along its surface and finally the jet leaves with a velocity Ve.

  • The magnitude of velocity vector remains unchanged.

  • However, the direction changes through 180 degrees.

  • Ve = - Vi

  • The change in velocity : - 2 Vi.

  • A jet with a finite mass flow rate will experience a rate of change of momentum, FA:

The force acting on the blade:

However, this force cannot develop any motive power.

Kinetic power lost by the jet :

Power lost by jet = Power gained by the Blade

Simple Impulse-Reaction Blade

Jet will lose power both by Impulse and Reaction.

One important and essential element in all these cases is a nozzle.


How To Provide A Mass Flow Rate

  • Area for Flow of Fluid.

  • Proportional to the Length of the Blade.

  • More Number of Blade Spacings.
