IMPACT OF INCREASED ASTERN POWER ON MARINE STEAM TURBINE PROPULSION SYSTEMS
The objective of this technical study is the determination of the impact on the design, operation, performance and cost of conventional (non-reheat) steam turbine propulsion systems due to increased astern power requirements. Two approaches are followed: (a) improved astern turbine efficiency, and (b) increased astern steam flow. The study is applicable to new construction.
