This paper describes the thermo-fluid design concept of a low-pressure, radial inflow steam turbine for the Open-Cycle Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC). For the optimum design consideration, the necessary theoretical tools are developed. The design concept permits the utilization of single-stage and multistage configurations for small and medium power ranges, respectively.
