List of Thermal Power Plants in Tamil Nadu

 

Thermal Power Plant

The prime mover is steam driven in a thermal power station or power plant. In a Thermal Power Plant the water is heated, which turns into steam and spins a steam turbine, which drives an electrical generator. After that it passes through the turbine, the steam is condensed in a condenser and recycled to where it was heated; this is known as a Rankine cycle.

The variation in the design of thermal power stations is due to the different fuel sources. Some thermal power plants deliver heat energy for industrial purposes, for district heating, or for desalination of water as well as delivering electrical power.
