At the previous conference in Český Krumlov it was presented how the balancing slots may influence the efficiency of the impulse turbine stage with the drum rotor arrangement. A few options for shape modification of the balancing slot were also suggested. Implementation of the balancing slots and their possible modifications are subject to various design and technological limitations. During the consultation with the turbine designers and technologists, we were able to determine the modification of the balancing slot which, in terms of their design and production technology, will be the most simple and feasible. It is predicted that the suggested shape modification of the balancing slot will improve the efficiency of the turbine stage. This prediction is then supported by CFD simulations.
