Steam Turbine Efficiency

Steam Turbine Efficiency: Steam Turbine Efficiency – The overall efficiency of a steam power station is quite low (about 29%) due mainly to two reasons. Firstly, a huge amount of heat is lost in the condenser and secondly heat losses occur at various stages of the plant. The heat lost in the condenser, cannot be […]

Schematic Arrangement of Steam Power Station

Schematic Arrangement of Steam Power Station: Although steam power station simply involves the conversion of heat of coal combustion into electri¬≠cal energy, yet it embraces many arrangements for proper working and efficiency. The schematic arrangement of a modern steam power station is shown in Fig. 2.1. The whole arrangement can be divided into the following […]
