Steam turbines for nuclear plants are different than those designed for fossil-fired plants, in large part because they must operate with steam much closer to saturation temperatures. With a resurgence in nuclear plant construction, knowledge of nuclear steam turbines will increase in importance. This course examines nuclear steam turbine technology, with comparisons to fossil plant turbines.

Educational Objectives:
  1. Understand that technical design issues important to Fossil Steam Turbines vary significantly from that of Nuclear Steam Turbines.
  2. Understand Hitachi's approach to root cause analysis and design modifications.
  3. Understand key design and technical components of the Hitachi turbine generator technology for nuclear applications.
  4. Gain a better understanding of Hitachi's engineering research efforts.
