At present 54.09% or 93918.38 MW (Data Source CEA, as on 31/03/2011) of total
electricity production in India is from Coal Based Thermal Power Station. A coal
based thermal power plant converts the chemical energy of the coal into electrical
energy. This is achieved by raising the steam in the boilers, expanding it through
the turbine and coupling the turbines to the generators which converts mechanical
energy into electrical energy.

Introductor overview
In a coal based power plant coal is transported from coal mines to the power plant
by railway in wagons or in a merry-go-round system. Coal is unloaded from the
wagons to a moving underground conveyor belt. This coal from the mines is of no
uniform size. So it is taken to the Crusher house and crushed to a size of 20mm.
From the crusher house the coal is either stored in dead storage( generally 40
days coal supply) which serves as coal supply in case of coal supply bottleneck
or to the live storage(8 hours coal supply) in the raw coal bunker in the boiler
house. Raw coal from the raw coal bunker is supplied to the Coal Mills by a Raw
Coal Feeder. The Coal Mills or pulverizer pulverizes the coal to 200 mesh size.
The powdered coal from the coal mills is carried to the boiler in coal pipes by high
pressure hot air. The pulverized coal air mixture is burnt in the boiler in the
combustion zone.
Generally in modern boilers tangential firing system is used i.e. the coal nozzles/
guns form tangent to a circle. The temperature in fire ball is of the order of 1300
deg.C. The boiler is a water tube boiler hanging from the top. Water is converted to
steam in the boiler and steam is separated from water in the boiler Drum. The
saturated steam from the boiler drum is taken to the Low Temperature
Superheater, Platen Superheater and Final Superheater respectively for
superheating. The superheated steam from the final superheater is taken to the
High Pressure Steam Turbine (HPT). In the HPT the steam pressure is utilized to
rotate the turbine and the resultant is rotational energy. From the HPT the out
coming steam is taken to the Reheater in the boiler to increase its temperature as
the steam becomes wet at the HPT outlet. After reheating this steam is taken to
the Intermediate Pressure Turbine (IPT) and then to the Low Pressure Turbine
Sector. CIick Here

by a cooling water system. This condensed water is collected in the Hotwell and
is again sent to the boiler in a closed cycle. The rotational energy imparted to the
turbine by high pressure steam is converted to electrical energy in the Generator.

Components of Coal Fired Thermal Power Station:
Coal Preparation
i)Fuel preparation sstem: In coal-fired power stations, the raw
feed coal from the coal storage area is first crushed into small
pieces and then conveyed to the coal feed hoppers at the boilers. The coal is next
pulverized into a very fine powder, so that coal will undergo
complete combustion during combustion process.
** pulverizer is a mechanical device for the grinding of
many different types of materials. For example, they
are used to pulverize coal for combustion in the
steam-generating furnaces of fossil fuel power plants.

Types of Pulverisers: Ball and Tube mills; Ring and
Ball mills; MPS; Ball mill; Demolition.
ii)Dryers. they are used in order to remove the excess moisture
from coal mainly wetted during transport. As the
presence of moisture will result in fall in efficiency due to incomplete
combustion and also result in CO emission.
iii)Magnetic separators: coal which is brought may contain iron
particles. These iron particles may result in wear and tear. The iron particles may
include bolts, nuts wire fish plates etc. so these are unwanted and so are
removed with the help of magnetic separators.
The coal we finally get after these above process are transferred to the storage
site.
Purpose of fuel storage is two
Fuel storage is insurance from failure of normal operating supplies to arrive.
3/20/12 Thermal Power Plant Working Indian Power Sector

Storage permits some choice of the date of purchase, allowing the purchaser
to take advantage of seasonal market conditions. Storage of coal is primarily
a matter of protection against the coal strikes, failure of the transportation
system & general coal shortages.

There are two tpes of storage:
1. Live Storage(boiIer room storage). storage from which coal may be
withdrawn to supply combustion equipment with little or no remanding is live
storage. This storage consists of about 24 to 30 hrs. of coal requirements of
the plant and is usually a covered storage in the plant near the boiler furnace.
The live storage can be provided with bunkers & coal bins. Bunkers are
enough capacity to store the requisite of coal. From bunkers coal is
transferred to the boiler grates.
2. Dead storage- stored for future use. Mainly it is for longer period of time,
and it is also mandatory to keep a backup of fuel for specified amount of
days depending on the reputation of the company and its connectivity.There
are many forms of storage some of which are
1. Stacking the coal in heaps over available open ground areas.
2. As in (I). But placed under cover or alternatively in bunkers.
3. Allocating special areas & surrounding these with high reinforced
concerted retaking walls.
BoiIer and auxiIiaries
A Boiler or steam generator essentially is a container into which water can be fed
and steam can be taken out at desired pressure, temperature and flow. This calls
for application of heat on the container. For that the boiler should have a facility
to burn a fuel and release the heat. The functions of a boiler thus can be stated
as:-
1. To convert chemical energy of the fuel into heat energy
2. To transfer this heat energy to water for evaporation as well to steam for
superheating.
The basic components of Boiler are: -
1. Furnace and Burners
2. Steam and Superheating
a. Low temperature superheater
b. Platen superheater
c. Final superheater
conomiser
It is located below the LPSH in the boiler and above pre heater. It is there to
improve the efficiency of boiler by extracting heat from flue gases to heat water
and send it to boiler drum.
Advantages of Economiser include
1) Fuel economy: used to save fuel and increase overall efficiency of boiler
plant.
3/20/12 Thermal Power Plant Working Indian Power Sector
6/21 indianpowersector.com/power-station/thermal-power-plant/
2) Reducing size of boiler: as the feed water is preheated in the economiser
and enter boiler tube at elevated temperature. The heat transfer area required
for evaporation reduced considerably.
Air Preheater
The heat carried out with the flue gases coming out of economiser are further
utilized for preheating the air before supplying to the combustion chamber. It is a
necessary equipment for supply of hot air for drying the coal in pulverized fuel
systems to facilitate grinding and satisfactory combustion of fuel in the furnace
Reheater
Power plant furnaces may have a reheater section containing tubes heated by hot
flue gases outside the tubes. Exhaust steam from the high pressure turbine is
rerouted to go inside the reheater tubes to pickup more energy to go drive
intermediate or lower pressure turbines.
5team turbines
Steam turbines have been used predominantly as prime mover in all thermal
power stations. The steam turbines are mainly divided into two groups: -
1. Impulse turbine
2. Impulse-reaction turbine
The turbine generator consists of a series of steam turbines interconnected to
each other and a generator on a common shaft. There is a high pressure turbine
at one end, followed by an intermediate pressure turbine, two low pressure
turbines, and the generator. The steam at high temperature (536 c to 540 c) and
pressure (140 to 170 kg/cm2) is expanded in the turbine.
Condenser
The condenser condenses the steam from the exhaust of the turbine into liquid to
allow it to be pumped. If the condenser can be made cooler, the pressure of the
exhaust steam is reduced and efficiency of the cycle increases. The functions of a
condenser are:-
1) To provide lowest economic heat rejection temperature for steam.
2) To convert exhaust steam to water for reserve thus saving on feed water
requirement.
3) To introduce make up water.
We normally use surface condenser although there is one direct contact
condenser as well. In direct contact type exhaust steam is mixed with directly with
D.M cooling water.
BoiIer feed pump
Boiler feed pump is a multi stage pump provided for pumping feed water to
economiser. BFP is the biggest auxiliary equipment after Boiler and Turbine. It
consumes about 4 to 5 % of total electricity generation.
CooIing tower
The cooling tower is a semi-enclosed device for evaporative cooling of water by
contact with air. The hot water coming out from the condenser is fed to the tower
3/20/12 Thermal Power Plant Working Indian Power Sector
7/21 indianpowersector.com/power-station/thermal-power-plant/
on the top and allowed to tickle in form of thin sheets or drops. The air flows
from bottom of the tower or perpendicular to the direction of water flow and
then exhausts to the atmosphere after effective cooling.
The cooling towers are of four types: -
1. Natural Draft cooling tower
2. Forced Draft cooling tower
3. Induced Draft cooling tower
4. Balanced Draft cooling tower
lan or draught system
In a boiler it is essential to supply a controlled amount of air to the furnace for
effective combustion of fuel and to evacuate hot gases formed in the furnace
through the various heat transfer area of the boiler. This can be done by using a
chimney or mechanical device such as fans which acts as pump.
i) NaturaI draught
When the required flow of air and flue gas through a boiler can be obtained by
the stack (chimney) alone, the system is called natural draught. When the gas
within the stack is hot, its specific weight will be less than the cool air outside;
therefore the unit pressure at the base of stack resulting from weight of the
column of hot gas within the stack will be less than the column of extreme cool
air. The difference in the pressure will cause a flow of gas through opening in
base of stack. Also the chimney is form of nozzle, so the pressure at top is very
small and gases flow from high pressure to low pressure at the top.
ii) Mechanized draught
There are 3 types of mechanized draught systems
1) Forced draught system
2) Induced draught system
3) Balanced draught system
lorced draught: In this system a fan called Forced draught fan is installed at
the inlet of the boiler. This fan forces the atmospheric air through the boiler
furnace and pushes out the hot gases from the furnace through superheater,
reheater, economiser and air heater to stacks.
lnduced draught: Here a fan called ID fan is provided at the outlet of boiler,
that is, just before the chimney. This fan sucks hot gases from the furnace
through the superheaters, economiser, reheater and discharges gas into the
chimney. This results in the furnace pressure lower than atmosphere and affects
the flow of air from outside to the furnace.
BaIanced draught:-In this system both FD fan and ID fan are provided. The FD
fan is utilized to draw control quantity of air from atmosphere and force the
same into furnace. The ID fan sucks the product of combustion from furnace and
discharges into chimney. The point where draught is zero is called balancing
point.

Ash handIing system
The disposal of ash from a large capacity power station is of same importance
as ash is produced in large quantities. Ash handling is a major problem.
i) ManuaI handIing: While barrows are used for this. The ash is collected directly
through the ash outlet door from the boiler into the container from manually.
ii) MechanicaI handIing: Mechanical equipment is used for ash disposal, mainly
bucket elevator, belt conveyer. Ash generated is 20% in the form of bottom ash
and next 80% through flue gases, so called Fly ash and collected in ESP.

iii) Iectrostatic precipitator: From air preheater this flue gases (mixed with ash)
goes to ESP. The precipitator has plate banks (A-F) which are insulated from each
other between which the flue gases are made to pass. The dust particles are
ionized and attracted by charged electrodes. The electrodes are maintained at
60KV.Hammering is done to the plates so that fly ash comes down and collect at
the bottom. The fly ash is dry form is used in cement manufacture.

Generator
Generator or Alternator is the electrical end of a turbo-generator set. It is
generally known as the piece of equipment that converts the mechanical energy
of turbine into electricity. The generation of electricity is based on the principle of
electromagnetic induction.

Thermal efficiency of a thermal power plant is the ratio of electrical energy
generated to the chemical energy of fuel consumed. For a subcritical plant it
is below 42% for a new plant. What a plant is generating is the plant
utilization factor. For a supercritical power plant the best thermal efficiency
may be around 45-47%.
#2 #2 written by written by Vaaimai Vaaimai 2 WEEKS AGO 2 WEEKS AGO
Thanks. But I learnt that efficiency of thermal power plants are around 45%
50%.
#3 #3 written by written by shivanshtyagi shivanshtyagi 2 WEEKS AGO 2 WEEKS AGO
That is my bad, yes effieceincy of plant are 45-45% but that is
thermal efficiency i.e how much coal energy is converted into the
electric power.
For thermal power plant there is a factor called Plant load Factor
(PLF), so if a plant has installed capacity of 100 and it rums with PLF
of 90% it will produce 90MWh of instantaneous power.
On an average plf of plants are from 85-90%. Though some plants
even run of PLF higher than 100% or say 1.
#4 #4 written by written by Vaaimai Vaaimai 1 WEEK AGO 1 WEEK AGO
Thanks again. Do you have any idea of efficiency of nuclear
power plants? If a 1000 MW nuclear reactor is installed, what
will be the power output?

What is the thermal efficiency of a thermal power plant? You said that Neyveli
Thermal Power Station II is producing 1470 MW of power. Whether it
produces such amount of electricity or lesser than that? (say 60 % efficiency
means 882 MW)

1470 is the installed capacity of the plant.Normally thermal power
plants run on around 85-90% efficency.

one of the most apt and brisk synopsys of a thermal power plant i have ever
read. the two diagrams at the start of modified rankine cycle and the plant
over view are the highlights. Great work sir. you have proved a valid point
again that simple logics are more important than unrequired expertise. i
would be very impressed if u could also add on super critical technology and
once through boilers which use a seperator rather than the conventional
circulation type boilers. also some some point missing are gland steam
cooler and also a note on water technology. but all together great work.
