Turbines are multi-block power generators that run on steam. The steam can be sourced from an active reactor that boils water, or from a heat exchanger. During operation, the steam is condensed into water which can be fed back into the source or it can be voided.
The smallest possible turbine size is 5 × 4 × 5, assuming a vertical shaft. With the default config, turbines may be built as large as 32 × 192 × 32.
Turbine Terminals are the control panels of the turbine. A turbine multi-block will form without a terminal, but you can't do much without it.
Turbine Casings make up the frame and walls of the turbine.
Turbine Fluid Ports are used to insert steam and extract water. They provide a UI to set input or output status.
Power Taps are used to extract power.
Rotor Bearings are located at each end of the shaft of the turbine. Exactly 2 are required.
Rotor Shafts form the shaft of your turbine that spans end to end and connects to the rotor bearings.
Rotor Blades make the rotor spin by converting the thermal energy of the steam into rotational kinetic energy of the shaft. They are placed onto shaft components and can be multiple blocks in length.
Turbine Glass functions identically to casings, but may only be used on walls. It allows you to see inside of the turbine.
