How Circulating Fluidized Bed Boilers Work?

Circulating Fluidized Bed combustion has given boiler and power plant operators a greater flexibility in burning a wide range of coal and other fuels. All this without compromising efficiency and with reduced pollution. How does the boiler work with this technology?

What is ISO Rating of Gas Turbines?

Gas Turbines are in service all over the globe. Performance varies with locations ans ambient conditions. Why does it perform differently ? ISO has developed ratings that specify input conditions while specifying Gas Turbines. Read this article to know more about it.

How Power Plant Boiler Works?

The boiler generates high pressure steam by transfering the heat of Combustion in various heat transfer sections. This part of the article series briefly describes the flow and arrangement of the heat transfer sections in a boiler. In line diagrams help make the concept clear.

Safety in Power Plant Boilers

Boiler is the key equipment in the power plant that converts the energy in the Fuel to heat and then to energy in steam at high pressures and temperatures. In this article we discuss the safety issues of Combustion and the high pressure / temperature water and steam.

Efficiency of Thermal Power Plants.

Electricity is a convenient form of energy. Thermal power plants convert the energy in coal to Electricity. Have you ever wondered how much is lost in the process of generating electricity? This article explains how efficiently (or inefficiently) the natural energy sources are converted.
