Coal Fired Thermal Power Plants

How Does a Coal Power Plant Work?

Thermal-based power plants can produce electricity from coal or other fuel sources. The coal-fired process requires three different steps to turn energy released from burning coal to generating electricity for consumption. Coal fired power plants, while producing power, require a lot of water and produce a lot of pollutants like ash and CO2.

Coal-Fired Thermal Power Plant sciencedirect

Coal is the dominating fuel source used in thermal power plants for generation of electricity. At the coal-fired thermal power plants, the raw coal is first pulverized to the shape of flour before it is force-fed to the furnace. During the pulverization process, the clay particles entrapped in the cracks of coal get separated from the coal.

Basic Layout and Working of a Thermal Power Plant

Coal: In a coal based thermal power plant, coal is transported from coal mines to the generating station. Generally, bituminous coal or brown coal is used as fuel. The coal is stored in either 'dead storage' or in 'live storage'. Dead storage is generally 40 days backup coal storage which is used when coal supply is unavailable.
