Purpose of Turbine Rotor and Stator

Purpose of Turbine Rotor:
- the rotor is the rotating (moving) part of the turbine
- the rotor is attached to the shaft
- the rotor receives the energy from the fluid causing the rotor to spin and the shaft to turn as well
- the function of the rotor is to extract the energy from the fluid and convert it to rotational energy

Purpose of Turbine Stator:
- the stator is the stationary (fixed) part of the turbine
- the stator is attached to the turbine casing
- the stator guides and changes the direction of the fluid from one rotor stage to another rotor stage
- the function of the stator is to redirect the flow of the fluid to the next rotor stage
