Equipment such as pumps, compressors, and fans is essential to the operation of an industrial facility. Before this equipment can operate, however, it must be supplied with power. Although electric motors are among the most common means of supplying the power necessary to drive equipment, other drivers, such as internal combustion engines, gas turbines, and steam turbines, are also used. This program focuses on steam turbines.
