AEG-Curtis steam turbine. Diagram showing a section in close-up through an AEG-Curtis steam turbine. In a steam turbine, steam directly turns the blades of a turbine to generate electricity, as opposed to driving pistons in a steam engine. The AEG-Curtis steam turbine was developed around 1904, and used the designs of the German engineering company AEG and the US engineer Charles Gordon Curtis (1860-1953).
