The Uniflow Generator is a small scale biomass fuelled 5kWe steam engine that can provide renewable power, heat, electricity and hot water from a single fuel source
MATERIALS ISSUES FOR TURBINES FOR OPERATION IN ULTRA-SUPERCRITICAL STEAM I.G. Wrighta, P.J. Maziasza, F.V. Ellisb, T.B. Gibbonsc, and D.A. Woodfordd ABSTRACT Coal-fired supercritical-steam power plants are currently operating with steam temperatures at the inlet to
Engine Generators Compiled by Tracy Dahl Overview When a research project requires a high output (>4 kilowatts) of electrical power over a short duration or an on-
3. ENERGY PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT OF COGENERATION SYSTEMS WITH STEAM AND GAS TURBINES 3.1 Introduction Cogeneration systems can be broadly classified as those using steam turbines, Gas
"I therefore decided to split up the fall of pressure of the steam into small fractional expansions over a large number of turbines in series so that the velocity of the ...
A steam turbine is a device that extracts thermal energy from pressurized steam and uses it to do mechanical work on a rotating output shaft. Its modern manifestation was invented by Sir Charles Parsons in 1884.

Proven components, shorter lead times, and easy installation and start-up. Small standard hydro generators are three-phase synchronous electrical machines for coupling with hydroelectric turbines - through direct coupling or speed-up gear box.
Siemens generators are the perfect solution wherever power has to be generated quickly, reliably and efficiently – whether on board of a ship or on an oil platform, in an industrial plant, a large gas or steam power plant or for renewables.
Question & Answers on Steam Turbines. What is a stage in a steam turbine? Answer: In an impulse turbine, the stage is a set of moving blades behind the nozzle.In a reaction turbine, each row of blades is called a "stage."

In this article, we will discuss steam turbine basic parts. The steam turbines are widely used in power generation, refineries and petrochemical industries.
Turbine - Steam turbines: A steam turbine consists of a rotor resting on bearings and enclosed in a cylindrical casing. The rotor is turned by steam impinging against attached vanes or blades on which it exerts a force in the tangential direction.
Key milestones. April 2012: The consortium led by EDF EN for which GE is the exclusive turbine supplier won three offshore wind farms in France (Saint-Nazaire, Courseulles-sur-Mer and Fécamp for a total of 238 wind turbines).
Most of the electricity in the United States is produced using steam turbines. A turbine converts the kinetic energy of a moving fluid (liquid or gas) to mechanical energy.
Available in work ratings of 10.8 and 21.7 inch-pounds, the PSG governor is a pressure-compensated, speed-droop, or isochronous governor for controlling the speed of small diesel, gas, and gasoline engines, or small steam or industrial gas turbines.
The electrical generating efficiency of standard steam turbine power plants varies from a high of 37% HHV4 for large, electric utility plants designed for the
As a market leader for industrial steam turbines, we offer a comprehensive range of reliable and versatile steam turbines for the power output range from 2 to 250 MW.
For nearly a century, Elliott steam turbines have earned a reputation as the most rugged, reliable and versatile drivers in the industry. Combining engineering expertise, rugged designs and precision manufacturing, Elliott steam turbines are built to perform and endure years of continuous service.
An easy-to-understand introduction to how turbines work, including water, wind, steam, and gas turbines.
IMIA – WGP 42 (05) 4 Executive Summary Steam turbines provide a means of converting saturated, superheated, or supercritical steam from boilers or heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) into rotational torque and power.
