on video How does a Thermal power plant work?

 



 The operation of a thermal power plant is explained in a logical manner with help of animation in this video. Starting from the very basic question a conceptual overview of Rankine cycle is provided here. Topics such a Generator, Steam turbine, condenser, feed water pump, boiler are illustrated initially. The basic Rankine cycle is modified and use of super hearing, reheating and feed water heating (deaerator) is explained there after.

JAES is a company specialized in the maintenance of industrial plants with a customer support at 360 degrees, from the technical advice to maintenance, until final delivery of the industrial spare parts.

A thermal power plant is a large-sized plant that turns the thermal energy into electrical energy, using water as working fluid.

Thanks to their production of electricity we can turn on the lights and make all our household appliances work, so that we can take advantage of many comforts.


The first thermal power plant was built in New York in 1882, during the second industrial revolution, in order to supply the first public lighting network in the world.

From this moment, the commercial production of electrical energy started, and it continues today with the same principles, providing the majority of the world’s demand of electricity.


In this video, we will see how a coal-fired power plant achieves this objective.

‘JAES’, with more than 10 years of expertise in the in the industrial supplies sector, has become the reference partner for some of the main companies involved in the production of electrical energy.

The first step is to increase the water temperature. There are many types of fuel for this purpose, for example: natural gas, nuclear fission or hard coal, as well as renewable energy sources such as the terrestrial heat or the solar irradiance.

In this example, we can see that the pulverized coal is burned inside a special type of boiler, called “water-tube boiler”.Here the water catches energy from the combustion fumes: it initially goes through an economizer, which is basically a heat exchanger that preheats the water. Then, the hot water is sent to the base of the burner, where flowing through the coils, receives a lot of energy and turns into steam.

This vapour, at high pressure and temperature, is sent from the cylindrical body to the next stage: the steam turbine.

The steam turbine is composed by high, middle and low pressure sections. In fact, pressure and temperature decrease as the steam yields its energy to the blades, so that they can rotate at great speed.

The resulting mechanical energy is then sent to a shaft which is linked to an electricity generator. Thanks to the transformers, the generator can feed this energy into the power grid.
