Steam Turbine & Generator Steam Turbine Beginnings
Believe it or not, Charles Parsons was an Irishman (back when Ireland was part of the United Kingdom)! Despite his Irish heritage, we shouldn't hold that against him for inventing a device that gave us all employment at GE! -Donal Kissane, FEP Grad
Steam Turbine & Generator Parsons Steam Turbine
The attached was on the web site but the original source is not really identified. Regardless, it is a paper/speech that was presented by Sir. Charles Parsons, who was the inventor and patent holder for the reaction steam turbine design. Westinghouse, Allis-Chalmers, ABB, Siemens, et al, were really licensed by Parsons to make their "50% reaction" turbine units. My GE friends are more familiar with the Rateau (Pressure Compounded)design, which is not addressed. However, there is plenty of talk aboutCurtis (Velocity Compounded) stages, since Parson did use these. The significance of Dr de Laval is clear, in this discussion, which I find refreshing. I find Parson's thinking, etc., fascinating, looking back a century later. It is especially interesting to integrate this perspective with contemporary ST knowledge, such as the increased use of reaction staging in GE's dense-pack designs. Some of you may be more interested in the telescopes and reflectors that he developed and used. John Mitchell

Steam Turbine & Generator Photos Taken at Steam Turbine Display - 2011
David and Sheelah Lucier visited the NMS&I in London, England in September, 2011. We went there so I could see the gas turbine car called the Jet One, but it had been moved to another site. However, this display of steam turbines was one of the first exhibits on the 1st floor. Enjoy
