Usage

First, pipe Steam into the Kinetic Steam Generator, ensuring that a Steam Turbine has been inserted. Next, you connect a Kinetic Generator, to transform the produced Kinetic Energy into EU. The Steam will condense on the turbine and so it'll fill with Distilled Water, that can be piped out and recycled back into a Steam Generator if desired. It should be noted that a Condenser is needed as well to prevent Steam explosions if the Steam is being pumped in directly from a Steam Generator, more information about that can be found here.

If Superheated Steam is used, instead of Distilled Water being produced, normal Steam will be, that can be piped into a second Kinetic Steam Generator. The kU output will be double when using Superheated Steam compared to normal Steam. Finally, the damage to the Steam Turbine is half that over time compared to normal Steam, as there isn't Water condensing on the blades.
