Electric Power Plant
From Energy Utilization
The electric power plant concept is well known, reliable and easy to operate. Superheated steam from the boiler drives a steam turbine connected to a generator. The electricity produced by the generator is fed into a public electricity network. Within the turbine the steam expands and cools down. Thereafter it is condensed in an air- or water-cooled condenser. To close the cycle, the condensate is pumped back to the boiler as feedwater and converted to steam again.
