16de Laval Turbine : The First Design for Steam Turbine de Laval turbine is an impulse turbine : An enormous velocity (30,000 revolutions per minute in the 5 H. P. size) is requisite for high efficiency, and the machine has therefore to be geared down to be of practical use.

18An Invention that Made abundance of Electricity at Very Cheap The modern steam turbine was invented in 1884 by the Englishman Sir Charles Parsons.The first model was connected to a dynamo that generated 7.5 kW (10 hp) of electricity.The invention of Parson's steam turbine made cheap and plentiful electricity possible and revolutionized marine transport and naval warfare.His patent was licensed and the turbine scaled-up shortly after by an American, George Westinghouse.The Parson's turbine also turned out to be easy to scale up.
19A Device Easy to Scale up Parsons had the satisfaction of seeing his invention adopted for all major world power stations, and the size of generators had increased from his first 7.5 kW set up to units of 50,000 kW capacity.Within Parson's lifetime the generating capacity of a unit was scaled up by about 10,000 times.The total output from turbo-generators constructed by his firm C. A. Parsons and Company and by their licensees, for land purposes alone, had exceeded thirty million horse-power.
21The most powerful steam turbine-generator in the world at the time of it's construction:1903 Built in 1903, the 5,000-kilowatt Curtis steam turbine-generator was the most powerful in the world. It stood just 25 feet high, much shorter than the 60 feet reciprocating engine-generator of a similar capacity
