Power Plant Boilers: Condenser Performance Monitoring – Part ...

The steam condenser of a power plant boiler is a critical heat exchanger in the process. Poor performance due to restricted heat transfer can have a dramatic influence on unit efficiency. And ...

Boiler - Wikipedia

In a fossil fuel power plant using a steam cycle for power generation, the primary heat source will be combustion of coal, oil, or natural gas. In some cases byproduct fuel such as the carbon-monoxide rich offgasses of a coke battery can be burned to heat a boiler; biofuels such as bagasse, where economically available, can also be used.

Steam Turbine Power Plants | Engaged in Thermodynamics

The efficiency of the steam turbine power plant depends on the type of fuel used in the boiler. The efficiency of coal-powered plants ranges from 32–42% depending on the pressure and temperature of the steam . The efficiency of advanced coal generation plants, however, can approach 50% .

Boiler (power generation) - Wikipedia

A boiler or steam generator is a device used to create steam by applying heat energy to water.Although the definitions are somewhat flexible, it can be said that older steam generators were commonly termed boilers and worked at low to medium pressure (7–2,000 kPa or 1–290 psi) but, at pressures above this, it is more usual to speak of a steam generator.

Power Plant Boilers: Water and Steam | Atlas Knowledge

This course is designed to familiarize participants with the basic principles associated with the flow of water and steam in various types of boilers. After completing this course, participants should be able to describe the flow path of water through a typical drum-type boiler, explain the differences between natural circulation and controlled circulation, and describe the functions and ...
