Special purpose steam turbine driver efficiency improvements offer significant energy saving incentives, particularly in today’s environment of soaring energy costs. Efficiency gains of up to ten percentage points are possible over past designs with up-to-date technology and can provide substantial operating cost savings for current energy costs. This paper reviews (1) governing factors for turbine efficiency improvement, (2) currently implemented design modifications, and (3) recommended approach to developing the “next generation” steam turbine technology.
