Advantages of Diesel Engine over Steam Turbine

Advantages of Diesel Engine over Steam Turbine Points : Advantages of Diesel Engine over Steam Turbine Fuel Diesel engine it is very necessary to use high speed diesel oil as fuel for good efficiency. In steam turbine steam is only fuel used in it and boiler is basic need for generating steam that's why gas turbine is more advantageous rather than other. Lubrication Diesel engine lubrication is typical and high cost. Because too much friction causes in the engine which causes distortion and reduce the life of various engine parts, various parts of engine need proper lubrication are piston, big end bearings, crank pins small end bearing gudgeon pins, valve, tappet and valve guide and timing gears. The lubrication of steam turbine is some of more than gas turbine. Maintenance Diesel engine is to high because lubrication oil and HSDO as fuel used in it which causes accumulation of carbon scale on various parts of engine also the life of diesel engine is limited after limit the engine needs complete overhauling and periodic maintenance. Operation and Start Diesel engine operation and starting system is simple and it can be quickly started comparatively than steam engine. Thermodynamic Efficiency Diesel engine is nearly 1500°C to 2000 °C this may cause the distortion. Steam turbine which is low and the inlet temp after combustion.
