Variable Load on Power Stations

Variable Load on Power Stations:

Base load and Peak Load on Power Station : The changing load on the power station makes its load curve of variable nature. Fig. 3.13. shows the typical load curve of a power station. It is clear that load on the power station varies from time to time. However, a close look at the load curve reveals that load on the power …

Load Curve on Power Station : The Load Curve on Power Station showing the variation of load on the power station with respect to (wet) time is known as a load curve. The load on a power station is never constant; it varies from time to time. These load variations during the whole day (i.e., 24 hours) are recorded half-hourly or hourly and …

Selection of Power Generation Unit in Load Curve : The load on a Power Generation Unit is seldom constant; it varies from time to time. Obviously, a single generating unit (i.e., alternator) will not be an economical proposition to meet this varying load. It is because a single unit will have very poor efficiency during the periods of light loads on the …

Single Line Diagram of Electrical System : The function of an Structure of Electrical Power System is to connect the power station to the consumers’ loads by means of interconnected system of transmission and distribution networks. Therefore, an electric power system consists of three principal components : the power station, the transmission lines and the distribution systems. The transmission lines are the …

Types of Load in Power System : what is load in power system : A device which taps electrical energy from the electric power system is called a load on the system. The load may be resistive (e.g., electric lamp), inductive (e.g., induction motor), capacitive or some combination of them. The various Types of Load in Power System are : Domestic load Commercial load Industrial …

Variable Load on Power Station : The load on a power station varies from time to time due to uncertain demands of the consumers and is known as Variable Load on Power Station. A power station is designed to meet the load requirements of the consumers. An ideal load on the station, from stand point of equipment needed and operating routine, would be …

Variable Load Problem : The variable load problem has introduced the following terms and factors in power plant engineering: 1.Connected load : It is the sum of continuous ratings of all the equipment’s connected to supply system. A power station supplies load to thousands of consumers. Each consumer has certain equipment installed in his premises. The sum of the continuous ratings of all the equipment’s in …
