Partial admission aerodynamic performance of a nozzle control stage for a 600MW steam turbine was numerically investigated using the Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) solutions. Two inlet main steam pipe, four control valves, four nozzle groups including strengthening ribs and full stator blades, and full rotor blades were considered in the present computational domain. The partial admission with three control vales opening and the fourth control valve closed under five different backing pressures were calculated to analyze the aerodynamic efficiency and total pressure losses distributions. The maximum aerodynamic efficiency of the nozzle control stage was obtained at five different backing pressure operating conditions. The flow fields in the nozzle control stage at specified backing pressure with consideration of the partial admissions effects were also illustrated.
