I heard that nuclear turbine with 3000rpm exists in some countries.
As I know, nuclear turbine has half speed like 1500rpm or 1800rpm due
to moisture in low pressure turbine section and last stage blade
why some countries make 3000rpm turbine?
I guess there are some of reasons as followings:
1. Transportation or delivery
2. Last stage blade length
3. Moisture doesn't matter any more
4. proven reliability
I need your answers. if you have good information about it, please let
Thanks in advanced
