In thermal power plants, the heat energy obtained from combustion of solid fuel (mostly coal) is used to convert water into steam, this steam is at high pressure and temperature.
This steam is used to rotate the turbine blade turbine shaft is connected to the generator. The generator converts the kinetic energy of the turbine impeller into electric energy.
Thermal Power Plants and Thermodyne
Thermodyne Engineering Systems has a wide experience in boiler manufacturing that generate high pressure and temperature steam required to rotate the turbine and generate electricity. Along with steam boiler we also have experience in providing energy solutions to our customers thereby saving you a lot on the operating cost.
We also do turnkey boiler plant projects including installation and commissioning of a boiler and its accessories.
Components of thermal power plant
Fundamental steam power plant components are Fuel handling plant, water treatment plant, ID fan, PA fan, Chimney, Water treatment plant, Steam Boiler system, Turbine, Mobrey Switch, Fusible Plug, Fluidized bed combustor, APH, economizer, generators, ash handling plant, dust collector system, condenser, cooling tower, feed water pump.
Advantages of Thermal power plant
Steam power plants are economical (initially) as compared to power generation plants. Plants required less area to setup as compared to hydra power plants.
Efficiency of steam power plant
Overall efficiency of power plants is low, which is 35-40%.
Thermal power plant Working
Thermal power station’s working principle is “Heat released by burning fuel which produces (working fluid) (steam) from water. Generated steam runs the turbine coupled to a generator which produces electrical energy in Thermal Power Plants.
Power Generation by steam is possible by extreme power of Steam ( Which produced by water). To Convert water into steam, fuel required such as Heavy Oil, LNG (liquefied natural gas), or coal.
