DEVELOPMENT OF METHODS FOR CALCULATING THE NONEQUILIBRIUM PHASE TRANSFORMATIONS DURING THE CONDENSATION OF SUPERCOOLED STEAM IN THE TURBINE FLOW PATH
Methods for calculating the nonequilibrium phase transformations during the condensation of supercooled steam in the turbine flow path are developed. In the process of realization, the development of the classical Zel’dovich-Frenckel’s theory for the case of nonstationary nucleation of a new phase with fast extensions of supercooled steam is considered. A numerical-analytical method for calculating condensation was designed and implemented in the form of a software package, which consistently takes into account the nonstationarity of the process. Numerical studies have shown high efficiency and accuracy of the method.
