Can t imagine a reverse power relay not being consider an interlock. It meets the definition of being integral with terminal generator main breaker to open on a reverse power condition and trip the turbine generator.

The reverse power relay just trips the generator Circuit breaker.
It is interlocked so that if the turbine is not tripped it will exercise a time delay before tripping. If the turbine is tripped the CB will open as soon as reverse power is detected.
Shutdown procedures often trip the turbine and allow reverse power to open the CB. This ensures the turbine valves are capable of closing to prevent overspeed. If the generator trip does not follow the turbine trip, the turbine steam isolating valves must be closed before the generator CB is opened.

What would happen if reverse power detected but generator CB will not trip or open. What are the possible damages if this condition occurs.

Simply, the steam turbine will be damaged for it will be spinning at high speeds without steam because there will be no steam demand so the throttle will be closed. I dont think the turbine can be run for very long without steam because it will overheat as stated earlier by Watts. That circuit breaker on the AC generator has to open for I would fear speed regulation to be an unacceptable condition too. The likely damaging scenarios are just not pretty. What a good question...

Is Cp/Cv applicable to steam to calculate?
By: Kent mayhew [2161]

The reason that isobaric Cp heat capacity is greater than isometric Cv is that isobaric involves expansion. Remember our atmosphere has mass, so in order for a system to expand it must displace that mass. And this requires work. So Cp requires work plus the energy to heat the gas , while Cv only requires the energy to heat.

So for all gases and/or steam the work required to expand a given volume is the same that being the work required to displace our atmosphere by a given volume.
