blog details: The steam turbines are used in oil and gas, distillery, chemical plants, food processing industry, or in industries where the steam is a by-product. While operating the steam turbine at maximum load, different losses of steam occur in a steam turbine. The turbine uses every single bit of heat drop produced by steam. But practically turbine work done is much less than the isentropic heat drop of steam used. Because at the time of operation some internal losses occurred. Practically 100% gross efficiency is not possible for any turbine. When the turbine works some factors have reduced the output of the turbine, known as the losses in a steam turbine.
Following are the major losses that occur in a steam turbine.
