Before reaching the turbine blade it passes through a HP compressor, IM compressor then a LP compressor. In this process, pressure energy of the steam is converted to the kinetic energy. After passing through the turbine pressure of the steam decreases. In-order to have a high pressure steam we have to condense the steam to water and again the cycle repeats. For this purpose condenser is used in steam power plants.
