The efficiency of a steam turbine is determined by the area of the flow cross section and the expansion clearance between rotor and casing.To keep the tip losses low, the blades are made as long as possible, consistent with a small rotor diameter. With small and medium flow rates this results in a high rotational speed. A h…
