Default Boilers and Turbines

Hi everyone,,

I would like to gather some information regarding boilers and turbines used in industries.

1. What is their basic purpose??
2. What are the basic components of them?? ( any diagram will be better)
3. Do they have certain parameters that can be controlled using PLCs or DCS system?

Thank you

1. boilers: to create steam. turbines: to turn compressed gas energy into rotational energy
2. Boilers: tank, fire tubes. Turbines: blades, shaft, enclosure
3. Yes. The boilers and turbines sold today can be very complex and very automated, controlled entirely by PLCs. parameters like pressure, temperature, flow, etc.
