II. STEAM TURBINE CODE SYSTEM

Steam turbines designed and manufactured by GE in Schenectady, NY have been classified by an alpha-
numeric code system since 1941. This booklet defines that system and lists the code designations of past
and current designs. The code system categorizes steam turbine designs on the basis of overall construction
configuration, and is not intended to define the detailed design of any specific unit. The configuration
code type, however, is the most basic description of steam turbine design, and with the addition of specific
information on megawatt rating, last stage bucket length, and steam conditions can be a useful description
for many purposes.

Prior to 1987, GE produced large steam turbine generators for electric utility applications in Schenectady,
medium steam turbine generators in Lynn, Mass., and small industrial units and mechanical drive turbines
in Fitchburg, Mass. Since closing of the Lynn plant in 1987, turbines in the former Lynn product scope
rated above approximately 40 MW have been produced in Schenectady and the smaller units in Fitchburg.
The 40 MW division in product scope is only approximate and is subject to change in the future. Since
closing the Fitchburg, Mass., 1998 all smaller size units have been produced in Schenctady.

The code system has been extended to include those designs previously built in Lynn and now produced
in Schenectady. The addition of the Lynn turbine designs for industrial applications and the new designs
developed in Schenectady for combined cycle greatly increases the variety of designs and the number of
different code types in active use. Furthermore, many of the new code types are for relatively simple, single-
casing, non-reheat machines, for which the relatively complex rules for defining new code types in use for
more complex designs are not appropriate. Therefore, the code system has been divided into two sections.
Section I, Reheat and Multi-Casing Non-Reheat Turbines includes the more complex configurations, and
new code types are established in accordance with the traditional practice of the Schenectady code system.
The reheat and two-casing, non-reheat designs previously produced in Lynn are included in Section I. The
turbines of Section II, Single-Casing, Non-Reheat Turbines, are of relatively simple design with limited
configuration variation and less complex rules are applied for defining code type.

III. DRAWING ORIENTATION AND NOMENCLATURE CONVENTION

Because of the many turbine configurations that are in use it is necessary to adhere to a standard convention
for defining direction of rotation, and in the use of nomenclature for identifying such components as valves,
bearings and couplings.

The orientation shown below is standard practice for this code book and all other diagrams and cross sec-
tions for technical and commercial purposes.

Orientation

Generator shown on the right, turbine on the left. Turbine End and Generator End of the turbine and Turbine
End and Collector End of the generator oriented as shown. Left and right sides defined viewing from turbine
to generator.

Rotation

Standard direction of rotation for all GE steam turbine generators covered by the code system is CCW,
viewing the generator from the turbine end. It is important to recognize that rotation is defined for the
unit and not for the steam turbine alone, and is independent of code type or the direction of steam flow.
Non-standard rotation may be used in circumstances such as for a replacement turbine required to match
rotation of an existing non-GE generator, and single-shaft combined cycle applications in which rotation is
required to match the gas turbine’s, which is not consistent across the product line. Also, in the mid-1980’s
a small number of units were produced in Lynn with non standard rotation based on designs previously
applied in single-shaft combined cycle, and in the transition of product scope from Lynn to Schenectady,
this was repeated on a small number of units.

Bearings

7
GEK 103567J Code Designation Book for Steam Turbines

Bearings are numbered sequentially beginning with the furthermost from the generator CE. For single shaft
combined cycle applications that include the steam turbine in the middle of the train, bearing numbering
starts with the gas turbine. Steam turbine bearing numbering designations in these configurations will
typically begin with T3 vice T1. See the D10 Schematic as an example.

Couplings

Shaft couplings (when more than one) are designated A, B, C etc. from left to right. (In direction of
increasing KW loading)

Packings

Packings are numbered sequentially beginning with the furthermost from the generator CE. Turbines that
have a double shell may have two adjacent packing sections. In this situation the juxtaposed sections only
receive one label designation. See the A8 schematic packing section N2, as an example.

SECTION I

REHEAT AND MULTIPLE-CASING, NON-REHEAT STEAM TURBINES

This category of turbines includes all reheat designs and all non-reheat designs of more than one casing.
Designs in this category previously produced in Lynn, Mass. are included. However, the listing of prototype
turbines for each code in the pages that follow refers to the first unit made in Schenectady.

A. Rules for Establishing Code Designations

For any new turbine design, selecting the proper code classification, assigning new classifications, etc.,
is governed by the following basic rules:

1. The basic code-series designation, (A, B, C, D, etc.) the first characteristic in the code, is deter-
mined by the following characteristics:

a. Full speed (3000, 36000 rpm) vs. half speed (1500, 1800 rpm)

b. Tandem vs. cross-compound

c. Number of Low Pressure flow paths (single, double, triple-flow, etc.)

d. Reheat vs. non-reheat

e. Condensing vs. non-condensing

2. Variation in any one or more of the following basic details, within any given code classification,
will result in the assignment of a new code number (1, 2, 3, etc.) for any specific turbine.

a. Location of main steam control valves (separate chest vs. shell mounted)

b. Location of Intercept Valves (on the upper shell vs. separately-mounted)

c. Internal vs. external low-pressure crossover pipes

d. Relocation of thrust bearing

e. Change in number or location of main journal bearings or couplings

f. Conventional bolted-in first stage nozzle (including the expanding nozzle-chest design) vs.
the separately supported nozzle boxes

g. HP-IP sections in combined casing vs. separate casings

h. Conventional bolted-in partial arc nozzle vs. 360 nozzle

3. Additional breakdown of important characteristics within a certain code number is indicated by


the final letter of the designation. The following is a definition of those suffixes:

11
GEK 103567J Code Designation Book for Steam Turbines

a. A - HP section turned 180

b. D - Double shell construction at the reheat inlet

c. E - LP sections using exhaust hoods with the casing exposed at the center portion

d. H - LP section exhaust hood designed for high temperature due to high backpressure appli-
cation

e. R - Reheat turbine to be used with light- or heavy-water reactors

f. X - Specialized application not likely to be repeated

4. In order to limit the multiplicity of turbine code number assignments and to keep these in accord
with the basic objective of the code designation system, the following basic variations in similar
turbines are not considered relevant enough to change the code designation:

a. Top, bottom single or double cross-over pipe connections

b. Reheat shells with separately mounted intercept valves may have either four steam inlet con-
nections (two upper and two lower shell) or simply two lower connections

c. 3000 rpm (50 cycle) units relative to 3600 rpm (60 cycle) machines. Similarly, no change
in code classification of 1800 rpm units will be made for similar designs at 1500 rpm, 1200
rpm, etc.

d. The control valve casings mounted on the high pressure shell may be either flanged or welded
construction, and individual or multiple valve chest assemblies

e. Turbines employing the expanding-nozzle-chest type inner high-pressure shell will still carry
the same code designations as used for similar units with the earlier-type inner shell arrange-
ment

f. Overload stage valves (considered as an integral component of the main control valves)

g. Combined reheat valves instead of separate intercept and reheat stop valves

h. Single flow vs. double flow nozzle boxes. 90 vs. 180

i. One or two reheat stages in the moisture separator/reheater, or 2 vessels vs. 4 vessels

j. Down or side exhaust on LP section(s)

k. Partial arc admission nozzle box vs. 360 nozzle box

l. Sliding or flexible leg support under front or middle standards

FULL-SPEED, REHEAT, SINGLE-FLOW CONDENSING TURBINES

The A series, in modern practice, includes single-casing and multiple-casing designs and is restricted to
reheat turbine only. The earlier definition for the A series code included non-reheat designs. The non-reheat
code types A1, A2, A3 and A4 have not been built since the early 1950’s.

B SERIES

NO CURRENT USE

The B series, in modern practice, is reserved for future use. Formerly, the B series code types were applied
to full-speed, non-reheat, double-flow designs having one end of the low-pressure rotor supported by the
TE generator bearing. These designs have not been built since about 1951. Any future use of a B series
code would begin with B3 since some B1 and B2 type turbines many still be in service.

DP/DS SERIES

FULL-SPEED, TANDEM-COMPOUND, DOUBLE-FLOW, PRIMARY (DP) AND SECONDARY


(DS) CONDENSING ELEMENTS FOR CROSS-COMPOUND, FOUR-FLOW, REHEAT
TURBINES

The turbines in this group represent the Primary and Secondary elements of cross-compound machines.
Considerable similarity in general design and arrangement exists between this code series and the D series,
however, the two are classified separately because the DP and DS individual elements are not designed to
operate as independent tandem units.

The term primary identifies the element of the cross-compound turbine that contains the highest (initial
steam) pressure; the term secondary identifies the mating element of the turbine

FP/FS SERIES

FULL-SPEED, TANDEM-COMPOUND, TRIPLE-FLOW, PRIMARY (FP) AND SECONDARY


(FS) CONDENSING ELEMENTS FOR CROSS-COMPOUND, SIX-FLOW REHEAT TURBINES

The turbines in this group represent the Primary and Secondary elements of cross-compound machines.
Considerable similarity in general design and arrangement exists between this code series and the F series,
however, the two are classified separately because the FP and FS individual elements are not designed to
operate as independent tandem units.

Each element has either a high-pressure or reheat section and, depending upon whether the design is for
single or double reheat, a reheat and/or intermediate-pressure section, both elements have a triple-flow,
condensing low pressure section.

The term primary identifies the element of the cross-compound turbine that contains the highest (initial
steam) pressure; the term secondary identifies the mating element of the turbine.

H SERIES

FULL-SPEED, NON-CONDENSING ELEMENTS OF CROSS-COMPOUND TURBINES

This series includes all of the non-condensing elements of cross-compound steam turbines. All are reheat
except code types H1 and H2 which were either used with non-reheat units or the reheat section was on the
secondary element. Some H1 Turbine built in the 1930’s may have been used as back-pressure machines
exhausting into headers rather than to the secondary shaft of a cross-compound unit.

J SERIES

HALF-SPEED, SINGLE-FLOW CONDENSING TURBINES

These turbines are single-flow, 1500 and 1800 rpm machines. Code type J1 is tandem-compound but all of
the others have been used as the secondary shafts of cross compound turbines. It is not expected that these
designs will be built in the future because full-speed, tandem-compound designs can be built for the same
rating at less cost.

K SERIES

HALF-SPEED, DOUBLE-FLOW CONDENSING TURBINES

These half speed designs are used as the low-pressure element of cross-compound turbines. There is likely
to be limited application for these designs in the future because full-speed, tandem-compound turbines can
generally be built at the same rating for less cost.

L SERIES

HALF-SPEED, TANDEM-COMPOUND DOUBLE-FLOW CONDENSING TURBINES

These designs have a high-pressure or reheat section and a separate double-flow low-pressure section.
Fossil plant applications have been both as non-reheat, tandem-compound turbines and as the secondary
element of reheat cross-compound turbines. Neither has been produced since the 1950’s. Code types L4,
L5 and L6 were used as small nuclear applications.

SECTION II

SINGLE-CASING, NON-REHEAT STEAM TURBINES

The turbines in this category are all full-speed, non-reheat, single-casing, single-flow, two-bearing designs
and are simpler in configuration and construction than those of Section I. Fewer variations in configuration
within each code series are possible. Most of these configurations were produced in Lynn prior to 1987.
However, the Lynn plant did not have a formal system of configuration codes. The listing of prototype
turbines identifies the first unit of each code type made in Schenectady. Where applicable, these code
designations may be applied to turbines built earlier in Lynn. In general, however, new code types are not
established for turbine configurations made in Lynn that have not since been produced in Schenectady.

A. Rules for Establishing Code Designations

1. The basic code series is defined by a combination of two or more letters based on whether

a. Condensing or non-condensing

b. Number of controlled extractions or admissions (0,1 or 2)

2. Code numbers (1, 2, 3 etc.) within a code series are assigned to identify whether

a. Generator driven from the HP or LP end

b. Shell-mounted control valves and inlet governing stage or full-throttling, off-shell valve(s)
