WORKING OF POWER PLANTThe working of power plant is based on regenerative rankine cycle explained as below:3.1 Rankine cycleThe Rankine cycle is a cycle which converts heat into work. The heat is supplied externally to a closed loop, which usually useswater. This cycle generates about 80% of all electric power used throughout the world, including virtually all solar thermal, biomass,coal and nuclear power plants. It is named after William John Macquorn Rankine, a Scottish polymath.Physical layout of the four main devices used in the Rankine cycle is shown on next page.Blog:
  9. 9. Mail : Description A Rankine cycle describes a model of steam operated heat engine most commonly found in power generation plants.Common heat sources for power plants using the Rankine cycle are the combustion of coal, natural gas and oil, and nuclear fission.The efficiency of a Rankine cycle is usually limited by the working fluid. Without the pressure reaching super critical levels for theworking fluid, the temperature range the cycle can operate over is quite small: turbine entry temperatures are typically 565°C (thecreep limit of stainless steel) and condenser temperatures are around 30°C. Blog:
  10. 10. Mail : way2sachinverma@gmail.comThis gives a theoretical Carnot efficiency of about 63% compared with an actual efficiency of 42% for a modern coal-fired powerstation. This low turbine entry temperature (compared with a gas turbine) is why the Rankine cycle is often used as a bottoming cycle incombined cycle gas turbine power stations. Processes of the Rankine cycle · Process 1-2: The working fluid is pumped from low to high pressure, as the fluid is a liquid at this stage the pump requires little input energy. · Process 2-3: The high pressure liquid enters a boiler where it is heated at constant pressure by an external heat source to become a dry saturated vapor. · · · Process 3-4: The dry saturated vapor expands through a turbine, generating power. This decreases TS diagram of a typical Rankine cycle operating between the temperature and pressure of the vapor, and some pressures of 0.06bar and 50bar condensation may occur. · Process 4-1: The wet vapor then enters a condenser There are four processes in the Rankine cycle; these states where it is condensed at a constant pressure to become are identified by number in the diagram to the right. a saturated liquid.Blog:
  11. 11. Mail : In an ideal Rankine cycle the pump and turbine would be steam tapped from the hot portion of the cycle. On the isentropic, i.e., the pump and turbine would generate no diagram shown, the fluid at 2 is mixed with the fluid at 4entropy and hence maximize the net work output. Processes 1- (both at the same pressure) to end up with the saturated 2 and 3-4 would be represented by vertical lines on the T-S liquid at 7. This is called "direct contact heating". The diagram and more closely resemble that of the Carnot cycle. Regenerative Rankine cycle (with minor variants) is commonlyThe Rankine cycle shown here prevents the vapor ending up in used in real power stations. [1] the superheat region after the expansion in the turbine, which reduces the energy removed by the condensers Another variation is where bleed steam from between turbine stages is sent to feed water heaters to preheat the3.2 Regenerative Rankine cycle water on its way from the condenser to the boiler. These heaters do not mix the input steam and condensate, function as an ordinary tubular heat exchanger, and are named "closed feed water heaters". The regenerative features here effectively raise the nominal cycle heat input temperature, by reducing the addition of heat from the boiler/fuel source at the relatively low feed water temperatures that would exist without regenerative feed water heating. This improves the efficiency of the cycle, as more of the heat flow into the cycle occurs at higher The regenerative Rankine temperature.cycle is so named because after emerging from the condenser(possibly as a sub cooled liquid) the working fluid is heated byBlog:

  14. 14. Mail : Ø 5.1 Coal handling plant: The coal, brought to the station by train or other means, we use wagon tripler for putting the coal on the conveying belt which consists of mechanical equipment and motor to drive it. Coal travels from the coal handling plant by conveyer belt to the coal bunkers. There are magnetic separator and magnet detecting device placed at conveyer to remove the magnetic element coming with coal and to indicate magnetic element by the two devices respectively. Now the coal is collected certain place which is called stacking, from where it is fed to the pulverizing mills which grinds it as fine as face powder. The finely powdered coal mixed with pre-heated air is then blown into the boiler by fan called Primary Air Fan where it burns, more like a gas than as a solid in convectional domestic or industrial grate, with additional amount of air called secondary air supplied by Forced Draft Fan. As the coal has been grounded so finely the resultant ash is also a fine powder. Some of this ash binds together to form lumps which fall into the ash pits at the bottom of the furnace. The water quenched ash from the bottom of the furnace is conveyed to pits for subsequent disposal or sale. Most of ash, still in fine particles form is carried out of the boiler to the precipitators as dust, where it is trapped by electrodes charged with high voltage electricity. The dust is then conveyed by water to disposal areas or to bunkers for sale while the cleaned flue gases pass on through ID Fan to be discharged up the chimney. To the boiler Coal Grinder through conveyer beltBlog:
  15. 15. Mail : Ø 5.2 Way of producing steam by the boiler: Initially we maintain a certain temperature inside the boiler. We pass mixture of oil and air which is ignited by igniter placed at the corner of the boiler. Oil used in this purpose may be HSD, HFO and LSHS. After reaching a certain temperature we pass powdered coal inside the boiler. This produces lots of heat which helps in producing steam. The steam super-heated in further tubes (Super Heater) and reaches a temperature about 540 degree centigrade and about 135 kg per square centimetre pressure and then it passes to the turbine where it is discharged through the nozzles on the turbine blades.Blog:
  16. 16. Mail : As the steam strikes on the turbine blades, shaft of the turbine gets movement due to so it starts rotation and reaches a speed about 3000 rpm. Then we control the speed of shaft by controlling the passes of powdered coal to the boiler. The shaft of turbine is mechanically coupled with the shaft of the generator due to so generator s shaft also rotates with a speed about 3000 rpm. The rotor is housed inside the stator having heavy coils of copper bars in which electricity is produced through the movement of the magnetic field created by movement of shaft i.e. rotor. The electricity passes from the stator winding to the step-up transformer which increases its voltage so that it can be transmitted efficiently over the power lines of the grid. The steam which has given up its heat energy is changed back into water in the condenser so that it is ready for re-use. The condenser contains many kilometres of tubing through which the colder is constantly pumped. The steam passing around the tubes loses the heat and is rapidly changed back to water. But the two lots of water (i.e. boiler feed water & cooling water) must NEVER MIX. The cooling water is drawn from the river, but the boiler feed water must be absolutely pure, far purer than the water we drink, if it is not to damage the boiler tubes. To condense the large quantities of steam, huge and continuous volume of cooling water is essential. In most of the power stations the same water is to be used over and over again. So the heat which the water extracts from the steam in the condenser is removed by pumping the water out to the cooling towers. The cooling towers are simply concrete shells acting as huge chimneys creating a draught (natural/mechanically assisted by fans) of air. The water is sprayed out at the top of towers and as it falls into the pond beneath it is cooled by the upward draught of air. The cold water in the pond is then circulated by pumps to the condensers. Inevitably, however, some of the water is drawn upwards as vapours by the draught and it is this which forms the familiar white clouds which emerge from the towers seen sometimes.Blog:
  17. 17. Mail : Why bother to change steam from the turbine back into water if it has to be heated up again immediately? The answer lies in heat law of physics which states that the boiling point of water is related to pressure. The lower the pressure, the lower the temperature at which water boils. The turbine designer want as low boiling point of water as possible because he can only utilize the energy of the steam when the steam changes back into water he can get NO more work out of it. So a condenser is built, which by rapidly changing the steam back into water creates a vacuum. This vacuum results in a much lower boiling point which, in turns, means he can continue getting work out of the stem well below 100 degree Celsius at which it would normally change into water. 1. COAL TO STEAM Coal from the coal wagons is unloaded in the coal handling plant. This coal is transported up to the raw coal bunkers with thehelp of belt conveyors. Coal is transported to mills by coal feeder. The coal is pulverized into powder form. This crushed coal is taken away to the furnace through coal pipes with the help of hot and cold air mixture from P.A. fans.P.A. fans taken atmospheric air, a part of which is sent to atmosphere for heating while a part goes directly to the mill fortemperature control. Atmospheric air F.D. fan is heated in the air heaters and sent to the furnace as combustion air. Water from the boiler fed pump passes through economizer and reaches the boiler drum. Water from the drum passesthrough down comers and goes to bottom ring header. Water from the bottom ring header is divided to all the four sides of thefurnace. Due to heat and the density difference the water rises up in the water well tubes Water is partly converted to steamas it rises up in the furnace. This steam and water mixture is again taken to boiler drum where the steam is separated fromBlog:
  18. 18. Mail : way2sachinverma@gmail.comwater. Water follows the same path while the steam is sent to super heater for superheating. The super heaters are locatedinside the furnace and the steam is superheated (540 C) and finally it goes to turbine . 5.3 STEAMS TO MECHANICAL POWER From the boiler saturated superheated steam enters the high pressure turbine where it passes through its various stages.The steam leaving the high pressure turbine goes back to the boiler for reheating and returns by a further pipe to theintermediate pressure turbine. Here it passes through another series of blades. Finally the steam is taken to the low pressure turbines, each of which it enters at the center flowing outwards in oppositedirections through the rows of turbine blades. As the steam gives up its heat energy to drive the turbine, its temperature andpressure fall and it expands. Because of this expansion the blades are much larger and longer towards low pressure ends ofturbine. When as much energy as possible is extracted from the steam it is exhausted directly to the condenser and furthercondensate cycle and feed water cycle take place. It is passed through further boiler for reconversion into steam.5.4 MECHANICAL POWER TO ELECTRICAL POWERLP turbine end is connected to generator. Generator converts mechanical energy to electrical energy.Turbine shaft usuallyrotates at 3,000 rpm. This speed determined by the frequency of the electrical system used in this country and is the speed atwhich a 2-pole generator must be driven to generate alternating current frequency of 50 cycles per second.Blog:

Fundamentals of steam turbine systemsPrinciples of operation- The motive power in a steam turbine is obtained by the rate of change in momentum of a high velocity jet of steam impinging on a curved blade which is free to rotate.- The steam from the boiler is expanded in a nozzle, resulting in the emission of a high velocity jet. This jet of steam impinges on the moving vanes or blades, mounted on a shaft. Here it undergoes a change of direction of motion which gives rise to a change in momentum and therefore a force.- Principle of operation is shown below:- The relationship between work, force and blade velocity can be expressed in the other graph.- Steam turbines are mostly axial flow types; the steam flows over the blades in a direction parallel to the axis of the wheel. Radial flow types are rarely used.STAGE: Pair of moving and fixed wheel is called a stage.No. of stages in each turbine:HP: 8 stagesIP: 12 stagesLP: 2x4 stagesBlog:
