Goal of Website

This website will hopefully strengthen the viewers knowledge of class material on electricity generation. After visiting this website, you will now be extremely knowledgeable on steam and water turbines. For mechanical engineers this is always a good topic to be informed on, and petroleum engineers may find it useful too do to their heavy use in refineries. Along with now knowing about water and steam turbines, you will know about their history and how to calculate their efficiency and power output. Knowing these equations will allow you to maybe someday calculate the efficiency of your own home water turbine. I hope you find this website useful and thanks for browsing.
