EXPERIMENT # 10 Q 1. What is a turbine? TURBINE: “A turbine is a rotary engine that extracts energy from a fluid flow and converts it into useful work." or “Any machine in which the kinetic energy of a moving fluid is converted to mechanical power by the impulse or reaction of the fluid with a series of buckets, paddles, or blades arrayed about the circumference of a wheel or cylinder.” The simplest turbines have one moving part, a rotor assembly, which is a shaft or drum with blades attached. Moving fluid acts on the blades, or the blades react to the flow, so that they move and impart rotational energy to the rotor. Early turbine examples are windmills and water wheels. Q 2. Write the names of different types of turbines. Turbines can be classified by two different ways: 1. Classification on basis of fluid: On the basis of the fluid from which energy is extracted turbines can be classified into four major groups: Steam turbines Gas turbines Water turbines Wind turbine
