Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9900583A1] The invention relates to a steam turbine shaft (1), especially a partial high pressure and medium pressure turbine (23,25). A cooling duct (5) is arranged on the inside (4) of the turbine shaft (1) to conduct cooling vapour (6). The cooling duct (5) is connected to a discharge duct (7) and a feed duct (8). Turbine shaft(1) vapour is cooled by supplying steam(6) from the high pressure turbine(23) via the feed duct (8) to the medium pressure turbine (25) through the discharge duct (7). The invention also relates to a method for cooling a steam turbine shaft (1).
