Nuclear steam turbines can be classified into two categories, one for BWR reactors where some countermeasures are taken for radiated steam and water, the other is for PWR reactors and PHWR (CANDU) reactors where steam and water are not radiated. As for Low Pressure section, there is some difference in LP rotor end structure, and LP last three stage blade components can be applied to all reactor types. The trend in nuclear power equipment is in a direction of larger capacity. In response to this trend, longer last stage blade is required if same number of casing is kept to make nuclear turbines reasonably compact. This paper addresses some of the key developments and new technologies to be employed focusing on longer Last Stage Blade (LSB) development with Continuous Cover Blades (CCB), and other enhancements in product reliability and performance.
