    Operator's Guide to General Purpose Steam Turbines

    Operator's Guide to General Purpose Steam Turbines: An Overview of Operating Principles* Construction* Best Practices* and Troubleshooting

    When installed and operated properly* general purpose steam turbines are reliable and tend to be forgotten* i.e.* out of sound and out of mind. But* they can be sleeping giants that can result in major headaches if ignored. Three real steam turbine undesirable consequences that immediately come to mind are:
    • Injury and secondary damage due to an overspeed failure. An overspeed failure on a big steam or gas turbine is one of the most frightening of industrial accidents.
    • The high cost of an extensive overhaul due to an undetected component failure. A major steam turbine repair can cost ten or more times that of a garden variety centrifugal pump repair.
    • Costly production loses due an extended outage if the driven pump or compressor train is unspared. The value of lost production can quickly exceed repair costs.

    A major goal of this book is to provide readers with detailed operating procedure aimed at reducing these risks to minimal levels. Start-ups are complicated by the fact that operators must deal with numerous start-up scenarios* such as:
    • Commissioning a newly installed steam turbine
    • Starting ups after a major steam turbine repair
    • Starting up a proven steam turbine after an outage
    • Overspeed trip testing

    It is not enough to simply have a set of procedures in the control room for reference. To be effective* operating procedures must be clearly written down* taught* and practiced—until they become habit.
