Mathematical Archetype of a Back-Bressure Steam Turbine

  • Andrzej Miller


It was considered back-pressure steam turbine with frequently used constructive scheme (fig.1) and nozzle control governing, running part of which consists from control stage and group of stages.For the purpose of optimization was built a mathematical archetype of such a turbine as a function of steam consumption and enthalpy drop distribution in turbine in design conditions. Received results moreover can be used in different practical analysis of turbine behaviour with changed conditions that noticeably reduce design calculation.An example of calculation was presented.
