The force that spins the turbinesin the plant is steam that is either used to drive an electric generator or any other work thatrequires power.However there are variations in the functioning of different types of thermal power plants whichmostly depends of the kind of fuel used. The most frequently used fuel for thermal power plantsin India is coal.About 70% of the electricity consumed in India is generated through thermal power plants. Indiais home to numerous thermal power plants which are renowned all over the world.Below is a list of the Major Thermal Power Plants in India
