To develop a manual with best practices guidelines for the operation and maintenance of steam turbines, and all associated auxiliary equipment of power plants, to ensure performance needs are met and further improved.The following main topics will be reviewed and incorporated in the manual:
1. Role of the steam turbine
2. Design and construction
5. Thermodynamics and efficiency aspects.
It is intended that these guidelines will include sufficient information for users to effectively manage the equipment safety and integrity. Much of the review will be based on plant experience.
