The unit Steam Power Plant is specially designed for technical training of students in the area of power plant engineering. Wide range of experiments that can performed enable the students to learn about power engines & machines.
The unit consists diesel fired boiler, steam turbine, steam condenser & power generator. The steam is generated in the boiler is supplied to the turbine & after expansion it flows to the condenser. The condensate is extracted from condenser using extraction pump. The condenser is cooling water is supplied from a large sump tank using a centrifugal pump. Measuring instruments are provided to measure the pressure & temperature of steam at different points in the cycle. The amount of boiler feed water, condensate & fuel consumption of the boiler are also measured for measurement of boiler efficiency & turbine performance.
