EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION ON DESIGN OF HIGH PRESSURE STEAM TURBINE BLADE
The Experimental investigation on design of high pressure steam turbine blade addresses the issue of steam turbine efficiency. A specific focus on aerofoil profile for high pressure turbine blade, and it evaluates the effectiveness of certain Chromium and Nickel in resisting creep and fracture in turbine blades. The capable of thermal and chemical conditions in blade substrate from to prevent the corrosion when exposed to wet steam. The efficiency of the steam turbine is a key factor in both the environmental and economical impact of any coal-fired power station. To increasing the efficiency of a typical 500MW turbine by 1% reduces emissions of CO2 from the turbine station, with corresponding reductions in NOx and SOx. In this connection an attempt is made on steam turbine blade performance is important criterion for retrofit coal fired power plant. Based on the research presented modifications to high pressure high pressure steam turbine blades can be made to increase turbine efficiency of the turbine. The results and conclusions are presented for a study concerning the durability problems experienced with steam turbine blades.
