Each Skinner Power Systems steam turbine generator package is designed as an integrated system. We select the turbine, generator, gear (where required), couplings, baseplate, oil system, controls and instrumentation for compatibility to meet your specific needs. Auxiliary control panels, synchro-nizing and generator protection equip-ment and other accessories can also be added to your system.
The Skinner Package Includes:
Turbine – We select a turbine based on the steam you have available.
Generator – Both two-pole and four-pole generator designs are available in induc-tion or synchronous types. We have flexibility to furnish the most suitable generator for you from manufacturers worldwide.
Gear – When appropriate, a gear reducer enables the turbine—which is more efficient at high speed—to drive a standard 4-pole generator at a lower speed. This results in dra-matically improved efficiency and cost savings in the form of greater electrical output and/or less steam usage.
Oil system – The oil system, if re-quired because of temperature or for the gear, is sized for ample capacity.
User-friendly controls – The control system features a user-configurable digital gov-ernor which provides the versatility for speed or pressure control.
Protective system - Every package has a mechanical overspeed trip. Other protec-tion devices available include temperature monitoring to indicate changes in turbine performance, vibration monitoring to sense problems such as misalignment or worn bearings, and oil system monitoring for heat and lubrication of bearings.

These days there is a new buzz-word in our industry. It’s “Combined Heat and Power” or “CHP” for short. It can be defined as the simultaneous or sequential generation of useful heat and power from the same fuel source. Thirty years ago we called it “Co-generation.” Either way, it’s about getting the biggest bang for your buck!
Skinner Power Systems manufactures nine (9) models of single-stage steam turbines with power output of 5 to 3000 horsepower. Our turbines are generally in compliance with applicable API standards. All horizontally-split models are available with sleeve bearings. Certain models are also available with ball bearings.
