Steam Turbines for Thermal Power Plants

Steam Turbines

Steam turbines for thermal power plants can be applied for both steam power plants *1 and GTCC power plants *2.

Mitsubishi Power steam turbines have the flexibility to be designed for various plant requirements such as daily start and stop (DSS) operations in GTCC power plants, quick plant start-up, process steam extraction, and extraction steam for district heating.
In addition, we also have experience in installing a clutch between the steam turbine and generator in a C-G-S *3 power train to remove the need for cooling steam during plant start-up, thus allowing the reduction of auxiliary boiler capacity and improvement in ease of plant operation.

  1. steam power plant: Power plant which uses the steam turbine as its only prime mover to generate electricity.
  2. GTCC power plant: Gas Turbine Combined Cycle power plant, in which a steam turbine is used in the bottoming cycle for power generation.
  3. CGS power train: Gas turbine (C) - Generator (G) - Steam turbine (S) in single shaft arrangement.
