When the inlet pressure of steam to the turbine is equal to outlet pressure of steam from the turbine is called the impulse turbine. In this type the heat is added is very less. 

In a reaction turbine, the outlet pressure of steam is less than the inlet pressure of the steam. There is reduction in pressure with the increase in kinetic energy.
