Blade velocity coefficient for an impulse turbine is of the order of 60%. (a) 1, 2 and 3 (b) 1 and 2 20. (c) 1 and 3 (d) 2 and 3. 20. Ans. (b) 3 is wrong because blade velocity coefficient for an impulse turbine is of the V cos a 2 order less than 50%. u

  7. 21. In a simple impulse turbine the nozzle angle at the entrance is 30 . For maximum diagram efficiency what is the blade-speed ratio? IES-2009] (a) 0 259 (b) 0 75 (c) 0 5 (d) 0.433 Ans. (d) For maximum efficiency of Impulse turbine. C05 Q Blade speed ratio - 2 cos 30 0.866 -0.433 2 2

  8. 22. Assertion (A): Modern turbines have velocity compounding at the initial stages IES-2000] and pressure compounding in subsequent stages. Reason (R): Excessive tip leakage occurs in the high pressure region of reaction blading. (a) Both A and R are individually true and R is the correct explanation of A (b) Both A and R are individually true but R is not the correct explanation of A (c) A is true but R is false (d) A is false but R is true 22. Ans. (a)
