Caloric Value of Fuels
The amount of heat produced by the complete combustion of a
Unit weight of fuel is known as its caloric value.

Modern Power station
100 MW station at 50% load factor

Burn 20000 tons of coal per month
Ash produced = (10 – 15)% of coal fired = 2000 – 3000 tons

Thus, in thermal station, about 50% to 60% of the total
Operating cost consists of fuel purchasing and its handling.

Non Conventional Sources:-
• 1.Geo-thermal energy
• 2.Tidal Energy
• 3.Wind Energy
• 4.Magneto Hydrodynamic
generation.
• 5.Solar energy.

sources
• 1.These resources are locally available and
everlasting.
• 2.The conversion does not involve in emission
of green houses
• 3.The power generation is at local level and
does not involve in T&D losses.
• 4.The systems are modular in nature.

Geo Thermal energy:-
• Heat energy of interior earth -----Electrical energy.
Line Diagram:-
• Earth surface/pipe line output steam separator
steam Turbine Alternator inverter D.C
• It is versatile in its use.
• It is cheaper
• The plants have highest annual load factor (85-90%)
• Pollution less.

Tidal Energy:-
• Tide is periodic rise and fall of the water level of
sea which are carried by the action of sun and
moon on the water of the earth.
• Tide can be used to produce electrical power
which is known as tidal power.
• The water is above the mean sea level is called
Flood tide.
• The water level is below the mean sea level is
called EBB tide.
• The average tide range is 8.5m and maximum
tide is 13.5m

Wind Energy
• It is indirect solar electric technology.
• It is energy from the WIND
Site selection consideration:-
• 1. High annual average wind speed.
• 2. Availability of anemometer data.
• 3. Availability of wind curve at the proposed site.
• 4. Local Ecology.
• 5. Distance to road or railway.
• 6. Nature of ground.
• 7. Favorable land cost
• It is renewable sources of energy
• Non polluting system
• Avoid fuel provision and transport.
• On large scale costs can be competitive with
conventional electricity and lower costs could be
achieved by mass production.
• It is clean and plentiful source of energy.
• It produces hundreds of mega watts.
• It’s also used for water pumping,
telecommunication power supply and irrigation.

Line diagram:-
Wind----turbine-----alternator----electrical energy.

Types:-
• 1. Vertical axis machines
(The axis of rotation is vertical, the blades also be
vertical)
• 2. Horizontal axis machines
(the axis of rotation is horizontal and in the
aeroturbine plane is vertical facing the wind.

Solar Energy:-
• It is energy from the sun.
• The energy in the form of heat and light.
• It is defined as the energy produced by the sun
and collected on earth.
Solar –Components:-
• 1.solar collector
• 2.storage unit.
Line diagram
Solar----solar rays----solar collector----
electricity/heat.

Types:-

• 1.Solar photovoltaic system power plants.
• 2.Solar concentration thermionic power plants
Solar photovoltaic system:-
• It is a direct conversion of light to electricity.
• (Each PV cell generate the electricity
approximately 6-12volts)
Basic photovoltaic system for power generation.
• 1.Solar array.(rays---DC power)
• 2.Blocking diode.
• 3.Battery storage.
• 4.inverter/converter
• 5.Appropriate switches and circuit breaker
Basic Photovoltaic system integrated with power grid

Feeder
Battery Storage
• It is free pollution.
• The plant requires little maintenance or help
after setup
• It is Economical
• When it is connected to the grid, solar energy
can overtake the highest cost electricity at
peak demand and can also reduce grid
local battery power in darkness.
DG is a another approach ,It reduces the
amount of energy lost in transmitting
electricity because the electricity is
generated very near where it is used
,perhaps even in the same building..This
also reduces the size and number of
power lines that must be constructed.

Distributed Generated System:-
• Distributed generation generates electricity from many
small energy sources.
• It is defined as the integrated use of small generation
units directly connected to a distribution system or
inside the facilities of a customer.
• It has also been called
• On site generation
• Dispersed generation
• Embedded generation
• Decentralized generation

Example—DG
1.Micro turbine,Small Wind turbine
2.Photovolatic cell ,solar water heating.
3.Small gas turbine.
Benefits-DG
1.Enhance the reliability of the power supply.
2.Reduce the need for T & D investments to serve
the growing demand.
3.Encourage efficient investments in electricity
reliability by offering a cost effective alternative
in many situations.

In a bundle affects voltage gradient and the optimum
