How a Coal Plant Works. Coal-fired plants produce electricity by burning coal in a boiler to produce steam. The steam produced, under tremendous pressure, flows into a turbine, which spins a generator to create electricity. The steam is then cooled, condensed back into water and returned to the boiler to start the process over.
It is like regressing into 1920’s power generation as Thomas Edison used steam in the early decades of the 20th century. Reheat sprays, with much higher than design flue gas temperatures, can create an opportunity to generate peak power. If the plant is boiler feed pump limited, then reheat sprays are
A pulverized coal-fired boiler is an industrial or utility boiler that generates thermal energy by burning pulverized coal (also known as powdered coal or coal dust since it is as fine as face powder in cosmetic makeup) that is blown into the firebox.. The basic idea of a firing system using pulverised fuel is to use the whole volume of the furnace for the combustion of solid fuels.
A boiler or Steam Generator (prime mover) is an integral device in a fossil fuel power plant used to produce steam by applying heat energy to water. A boiler incorporates a furnace in order to burn the fossil fuel (coal, gas, waste etc.) and generate heat which is transferred to water to make steam.
A steam power plant continuously converts the energy stored in fossil fuels i.e. coal, oil, etc. or fossil power plant industry primarily because of the high availability of water, moderate boiling point, cheap The reheat steam coming from the boiler flows to the intermediate-pressure (IP) or reheat turbine where it expands and exhausts
