Sounds cool, eh? Yeah, well, they are cool! So in this detailed post we are going to see what is turbine, what are the types of turbines, their working & applications in various powerplants.
What is turbine ?
A turbine is a rotating part which converts the kinetic energy of a working fluid into useful mechanical energy and/or electrical energy. Simple, right? Well, nothing is simple when you go deeper.
There are set of blades mounted on a rotor which helps in extracting energy from the moving fluid. The efficiency of turbines depends on the design of the blades.
Different applications need different designs & designing them isn’t a layman’s job. more “What are Turbines ? | Types of turbines & their applications”
