Steam Turbine Generators

  • Stanley A. Armbruster


The steam turbine generator is the primary power conversion component of the power plant. The function of the steam turbine generator is to convert the thermal energy of the steam from the steam generator to electrical energy. Two separate components are provided: the steam turbine to convert the thermal energy to rotating mechanical energy, and the generator to convert the mechanical energy to electrical energy. Typically, the turbine is directly coupled to the generator.
