Power and Energy Sector Thermal Power Plants in India



Training provided by Marcep Inc. in power and energy sector, but first, let us understand these two terms i.e. power and energy. steam power, thermal power station, solar energy, thermal power plants in India

What is Power?
Power is the rate of doing work. It is the amount of energy consumed per unit time. It is a scalar quantity i.e it has no direction. In the SI system, the unit of power is the joule per second (J/s), known as the watt in the name of James Watt. James Watt developed the steam engine in the eighteenth century. Another common and traditional measure is horsepower (comparing to the power of a horse).
What is Power Station?
A power station, also referred to as a power plant, powerhouse, generating station and generating plant is an industrial facility for the generation of electric power. Most of the power stations contain one or more generators, a rotating machine that converts mechanical power into electrical power. The relative motion between a magnetic field and a conductor creates an electrical current. The energy source harnessed to turn the generator varies widely. Most power stations in the world burn fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas to generate electricity. Others use nuclear power, but there is an increasing use of cleaner renewable sources such as solar, the wind, wave and hydroelectric.
Different types of Power plants
Thermal power stations produce mechanical power by a heat engine that transforms thermal energy, mostly from combustion of fuel into rotational energy. Thermal power stations generate steam so often they are called steam power stations
By heat source
By prime mover
By duty
Cooling towers
Once-through cooling systems

2. Hydroelectric power plants
In the hydroelectric power station, hydroelectricity is generated by water flowing through turbines using hydropower
Solar energy can be turned into electricity in a concentrating solar power plant by focusing the light to run a heat engine or by either directly in solar cells.
3. Wind power plants
Wind turbines play an important role in generating electricity in areas with strong, steady winds, sometimes offshore.
4. Storage power stations
It is possible to store energy and produce the electricity at a later time like in Pumped-storage hydroelectricity, Thermal energy storage, Flywheel energy storage, Battery storage power station and so on.

Power Station Operator

The power station operator has duties in the electricity-generating facility. Operators are responsible for the safety of the work crews that frequently do repairs on the mechanical and electrical equipment. They maintain the equipment with periodic inspections and log temperatures, pressures, and other important information at regular intervals. Operators are responsible for starting and stopping the generators depending on need. They are able to synchronize and adjust the voltage output of the added generation with the running electrical system, without upsetting the system. They must know the electrical and mechanical systems in order to troubleshoot solve/fix problems in the facility and add to the reliability of the facility. Operators must be able to respond to an emergency and know the procedures in place to deal with it.

What is Energy?

In physics, Energy is the property that should be transferred to an object to do work or to heat the object. Energy can be converted in form, but not created or destroyed. The SI unit of energy is the joule, which is the energy transferred to an object by the mechanical work of moving it a distance of 1 meter against a force of 1 Newton.
Different forms of energy include the kinetic energy of a moving object, the potential energy stored by an object's position in a force field (gravitational, electric or magnetic), the elastic energy stored by stretching solid objects, the chemical energy released when a fuel burns, the radiant energy carried by light, and the thermal energy due to an object's temperature.
Mass and energy are the two terms which are closely related. Due to mass-energy equivalence, any object that has mass when stationary in a frame of reference (called rest mass) also has an equivalent amount of energy whose form is called rest energy in that frame, and any additional energy acquired by the object above that resting energy will increase an object's mass. For example, with a sensitive enough scale, one could measure an increase in mass after heating an object.
Living organisms require available energy to stay alive, such as the energy humans get from food. Humans get the energy they need from energy resources such as fossil fuels, nuclear fuel, or renewable energy. The processes of Earth's climate and ecosystems are driven by the radiant energy Earth receives from the sun and the geothermal energy contained within the earth.
