  1. 1. INTRODUCTION TO POWER PLANT MET 401POWER PLANT ENGINEERING DR. TAIB ISKANDAR MOHAMAD
  2. 2. What are power plants? A power plant is an industrial facility for the generation of electric power Also called generating station, power station, or powerhouse The most important component in power stations is a generator, a rotating machine that converts mechanical power into electrical power by creating relative motion between a magnetic field and a conductor. The energy source harnessed to turn the generator varies widely depending on price, availability and technology.
  3. 3. Many sources ofenergy for powerplant:• Thermal• Nuclear• Hydrokinetic• Wave• Tidal• Geothermal• Solar The Susquehanna Steam Electric Station, a boiling water reactor nuclear power plant.
