Coal-Fired Power Plant: Power Generation Procedures a& Optimization

Workshop Overview

Coal fired power plants are a type of power plant that make use of the combustion of coal in order to generate electricity. Their use provides around 40% of the world’s electricity and they are primarily used in developing countries. The use of coal provides access to electricity to those who previously didn’t have it, which helps to increase quality of life and reduce poverty in those regions, however it produces large quantities of different pollutants which reduces air quality and contributes to climate change.

Coal is the biggest single source of energy for electricity production and its share is growing. It is also one of the most affordable and largest domestically produced sources of energy. It is used to generate a substantial amount of our electricity – about 37%. The efficiency of converting coal into electricity matters: more efficient power plants use less fuel and emit less climate-damaging carbon dioxide. This course covers on coal-fired power plants. The challenge; finding ways to burn it more sustainably.

Coal plays an essential role in our global energy mix, particularly for power generation, but we need to use it efficiently and reduce its environmental footprint. We are committed to producing and delivering electricity in an environmentally responsible, co-efficient and reliable manner – and take our responsibility to the environment very seriously.

In addition to modernizing the current plants, we are committed to building new ones that are cleaner and more efficient. We also effectively management air emissions through a diverse mix of fuels to generate electricity. In a coal-fired steam station, water is turned into steam, which in turn drives turbine generators to produce electricity. There’s a long process to it.

This 2-day course on coal-fired power plant, the course will help delegates to get to know, in and out, on coal-fired power generation which is much more complex with many more components needed for power generation in power plants.

Why you should Attend?

This 2-day course on coal-fired power plant focusing on power generation procedures and optimization, the delegates will be able to understand about boilers and furnaces including tangential, wall-fired, cyclone, and circulating fluidized bed. This course would also be covering on turbine and generators including Westinghouse, general electric, Allis Chalmers, and Mitsubishi.

From this course, delegates will get to know and understand in depth the thermodynamic laws of energy, using it as a base to master the coal combustion process. They will also get to know the different steam cycles and be able to recognize both hot and cold reheat systems and the generators and excitation basics.
