توربین های بخار دارای محدودیت مینیموم تولید توان به شرح زیر هستند.
Blade vibration is a concern when the turbine is under load not during startup and shutdown.
The minimum load at which steam flow is sufficient to cause damage is usually around 5%. Of course, the turbine manufacturer must determine the exact value. A potential for turbine damage exists when the generator is isolated from the power system carrying auxiliary load in excess of the threshold value.
