This is the largest Turbomachinery Conference in the world, with the number of participants being around 3000, and with an added turbomachinery exhibition.
It is becoming apparent that the biggest trends in turbomachinery are compressors, gas turbines and aircraft engines. Steam turbines take up one section out of the total number of around 18. Doosan Škoda Power have attended the conference with their contribution: Numerical Investigation and Validation of the 1 090 MW Steam Turbine Exhaust Hood Flow Field. This contribution was heard by the representatives of GE, Siemens, Mitsubishi and a whole range of other companies, research institutes and universities.
Considering the extensive discussion, it seems that the topic certainly did not fall on deaf ears; many debaters particularly appreciated the data gained by measuring the last LP stage directly at the power plant. That is unique, even to a worldwide audience.
