"A steam turbine may be defined as a form of heat engine in which the energy of the steam is transformed into kinetic energy by means of expansion through nozzles, and the kinetic energy of the resulting jet is in turn converted into force doing work on rings of blading mounted on a rotating part."1

This definition may be restated:

"A steam turbine is a prime mover which converts the thermal energy of steam directly into mechanical energy of rotation."2
