This paper discusses the design features and general arrangement of a 321-mw close-coupled cross-compound 3600/1800-rpm steam turbine-generator unit. The machine is designed for operation with subcritical pressures and with steam temperatures that permit using ferritic materials. It was the first machine to be ordered in the 300-mw size range and is installed in the River Rouge Station of The Detroit Edison Company.
