A Steam Turbine Efficiency Improvement Application And Conversion.
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents some recent technical innovations to improve mechanical drive steam turbine efficiency and presents a case study of a recent retrofit application of these features to a compressor driver. Various external and internal factors for consideration of the balance of plant efficiency gains are discussed. Descriptions of the turbine steam path improvements, testing, and results of the steam turbine conversion are also presented.
