Gas and steam turbines are available in a wide range of sizes. They are commonly used for power generation and a variety of mechanical drive applications. Steam turbines operate in thermal and nuclear power plants; they also are being used more and more with gas turbines in combined-cycle power plants. Gas turbines are often favored for their flexibility and smaller footprint as well as their relative ease at bringing a new plant online or supplementing an existing plant.
