Steam is then expanded in the steam turbine and is condensed in a condenser to be fed into the boiler again. The condenser is a heat exchanger used to condense a gaseous substance into a liquid state through cooling. The major loss in steam power station occurs in the condenser that is because the conversion from heat energy into mechanical energy is not possible without temperature difference.
