  4. 4. INTRODUCTION THERMAL POWER PLANTS Ø  Converts heat energy(chemical energy) into electricity. Ø  Fuels used: Usually fossil Fuels- Coal, Oil, Natural Gas etc. Ø  Coal burning produces the heat, used to convert the water to high pressure steam in a boiler. Ø  High pressure steam is expanded in a steam turbine converting pressure energy into kinetic energy of the rotating turbine. Ø  Largest contributors in electricity production in India (71%). Ø  High Initial set-up cost Ø  Very high carbon footprint. Ø  Causes very high environmental pollution Ø  Requires large quantity of conventional fossil fuel & water Ø  Slowly being replaced by Solar/ Nuclear Plants
  5. 5. WORKING OF A THERMAL POWER PLANT   Thermal power plants produce electricity by converting the chemical energy of a fossil fuel into electricity. The fuel burnt in the boiler hets water to produce steam. The steam at high pressure and temperature expands through a steam turbine rotating the turbine shaft the produce electricity in a generator. The expanded steam is cooled, condensed and fed into the boiler again to produce steam
