Rajasthan's first major Coal fired Power
plant established in the year 1983.
Located on the left bank of the Chambal
River near Kota.
Total installed capacity of KSTPS is
Electricity by definition is electric current
or voltage that is used as a power source.
This electric power is generated in a power
plant,and then sent out over a power grid to your
homes, and ultimately to our power outlets.

A super heater is a device which superheats the
steam, it raises the temperature of steam above
boiling point of water.
Increases the overall efficiency of the steam.
A super heater consists of a group of tubes made
of special alloy such as chromium-molybdenum.
These tubes are heated by the heat of the flue

Flue gas out of the boilers carry a lot of heat. An economizer
extracts a part of this heat from the flue gases and uses it for
heating feed water.

We have learn’t how electricity is produced in thermal power
plant and its main and auxiliary equipments.
We have seen that the fuel sources that provide energy are not
going to be last forever.
We need to realize that and make worldwide leaders aware of the
energy crisis. If this continuous, we won’t have any energy left for
So, start saving electricity and make the environment green and
