Report Summary

Steam turbines are rotary heat engines used for conversion of thermal energy of steam to mechanical energy or to electrical energy. The components of steam turbine include boiler, turbine, condenser, feed pump, and other auxiliary devices. Steam Engines are primarily used for powering electrical generators. Most of the electricity generation in the world is through the use of steam turbines. Steam turbines are used in almost all modern and future thermal power plants. The different types of steam engines include impulse turbines and reaction turbines. Modern steam engines use a combination of impulse and reaction turbines.
