1993 Thermo-fluid Dynamic Design of Single-stage Axial Ammonia Turbines for OTEC
Efficiency and performance calculations are performed for single-stage axial turbines for closed-cycle Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) at given design conditions. Parameters in the turbine efficiency consists of number of nozzle and rotor blades, turbine rotational speed, degree of reaction, nozzle outlet angle and velocity ratio (nozzle outlet flow velocity/circumferential rotor velocity). Numerical results are shown for 1000 kW output and ammonia is used as the working fluid.
