CHAPTER -1 General Layout & Basic Idea
A control system of station basically works on Rankin Cycle. Steam is produced in Boiler is exported in prime mover and is condensed in condenser to be fed into the boiler again. In practice of good number of modifications are affected so as to have heat economy and to increase the thermal efficiency of plant.

The Kota Thermal Power Station is divided into four main circuits:   Fuel and Ash Circuit Air and Gas Circuit.


Finally. next through dust collector (ESP) & then economizer. From the BFP it passes through the high pressure heaters. The low pressure steam called the cold reheat 5 . they are exhausted to the atmosphere through fans. The fuel used in KSTPS is coal. This ash is collected at the back of the boiler and removed to ash storage tank through ash disposal equipment. The quantity of ash produced is approximately 30-35% of coal used. which on combustion in the boiler produced the ash. feed water enters into the boiler drum through economizer. Thereafter. Cooling Water Circuit.  Feed water and Steam Circuit. From deaerator it goes to boiler feed pump which increases the pressure of the water. The flue gases are first pass around the boiler tubes and super heated tubes in the furnace. Feed Water and Steam Circuit:The condensate leaving the condenser is first heated in low pressure (LP) heaters through condensate extracted pump from the low pressure extraction of the turbine. This water is called the make up water. A small part of water and steam is lost while passing through different components therefore water is added in hot well. Air and Gas Circuit:Air from the atmosphere is supplied to the combustion chamber of Boiler through the action of forced draft fan and induced draft fan. From superheated it goes into the HP turbine after expanding in the HP turbine. Fuel & Ash Circuit:Fuel from the storage is fed to the boiler through fuel handling device. The wet steam passes through superheated. In boiler tubes water circulates because of density difference in lower and higher temperature section of the boiler. Then its goes to deaerator where extra air and non-condensable gases are removed from the hot water to avoid pitting / oxidation.

steam (CRH) goes to the reheater (boiler). The coal is brought to the KSTPS through rails there are fourteen tracks in all for transportation of coal through rails. The main coal sources for KSTPS are SECL (South Eastern Coalfields Limited). The whole transportation of coal is through conveyor belt operated by 3-Ø Induction motor. The coal handling plant can broadly be divided into three sections:- 6 . The coal is firstly unloaded from wagon by wagon triplers then crushed by crushers and magnetic pulley and pulverized to be transformed to the boiler. It costs approximate 2 crores of rupees per day including transportation expenses. The approximate per day consumption at KSTPS is about 18000 tones. In this plant unit 1 to 5 needs cooling as they work on open water cycle system while unit 6&7 needs no cooling as they work on close water system therefore the water is recycled. CHAPTER-2 COAL HANDLING PLANT INTRODUCTION:It can be called the heart of thermal power plant because it provided the fuel for combustion in boiler. Cooling Water Circuit:A large quantity of cooling water is required to condense the steam in condenser and maintaining low pressure in it. Each train consists of 58 wagons and each wagon consists of 60 tons of coal. Everyday 3 to 4 trains of coal are unloaded at KSTPS. The water is drawn from reservoir and after use it is drained into the river. ECL (Eastern Coalfield Limited) and BCCL (Bharat Coking Coal Limited). From reheater it goes to IP turbine and then to the LP turbine and then exhausted through the condenser into hot well.

During reclaiming the material discharged on to the boom conveyor by the bucket fitted to the bucket wheel body and boom conveyor feeds the material on the main line conveyor running in the reverse direction.i. 9 . Shearing and Compression. ii. FEEDERS:This structure is erected to serve the purpose of storage. CONVEYING SYSTEM:- Stacker Reclaimer:The stacker re-claimer unit can stack the material on to the pipe or reclaim the stack filed material and fed on to the main line conveyor. Most of the crushers employ a combination of three crushing methods. The unique feature of this granulator is the minimum power required for tone for this type of material to be crushed compared to that of other type of crushers. While stacking material is being fed from the main line conveyor via triplers unit and vibrating feeder on the intermediate conveyor which feds the boom conveyor of the stacker cum reclaimer. Under ground machines are installed known as plow feeder machines. Ring granulators crush by compressing accompanied by impact and shearing.

Air and Gas Plant.These machines collect the coal from conveyor and drop it to the other from one conveyor with the help of jaws and this coal is taken to huge erected structure from where the coal falls to the ground. Ash Disposal and & Dust Collection Plant. Fuel and ash plant:- 10 . ASH HANDLING PLANT This plant can be divided into 3 sub plants as follows:1) 2) 3) Fuel and Ash Plant.

In KTPS there are two FD fans and three ID fans available for draft system per unit. Air & Gas Plant:Air from atmosphere is supplied to combustion chamber of boiler through the action of forced draft fan. In re-heater the temperature of the steam (CRH) coming from the HP turbines heated with increasing the number of steps of re-heater the efficiency of cycle also increases. The Pulverization also increases the overall efficiency and flexibility of boilers. Ash Handling Plant consists of especially designed bottom and fly ash system for two path boiler. Ash Disposal & Dust Collection Plant:KSTPS has dry bottom furnace.Coal is used as combustion material in KTPS. Ash produced as the result of combustion of coal is connected and removed by ash handling plant. The flue gases formed due to combustion of coal first passes round the boiler tubes and then it passes through the super heater and then through economizer. Finally the flue gases after passing through the Electro-Static Precipitator is exhausted through chimney. The pre heating of primary air causes improved and intensified combustion of coal. In order to get an efficient utilization of coal mills. oil burners are also used. The system for both units is identical and following description is applied to both the units the water compounded bottom ash hopper receives the bottom ash from the furnace from where it is stores and 11 . Ash Handling Plant at KTPS consists of specially designed bottom ash and fly ash in electro static precipitator economizer and air pre-heaters hoppers. The air before being supplied to the boiler passes through pre-heater where the flue gases heat it. In economizer the heat of flue gases raises the temperature of feed water. However for light up and with stand static load.

Boilers are classified as:Fire tube boiler: In this type the products of combustion pass through the tubes which are surrounded by water. These tubes are interconnected to common water channels and to steam outlet. A boiler is always designed to absorb maximum amount of heat released in process of combustion. conduction. Water tube boiler:In this type of boiler water flows inside the tubes and hot gases flow outside the tubes. From these hoppers ash is evacuated by ash handling system and dispose to the disposal area. 15 . convection and radiation.

Furnace:- 17 .

Furnace is primary part of the boiler where the chemical energy available in the fuel is converted into thermal energy by combustion. water-cooled furnaces are used. The crushed coal from the coal crusher is transferred into the unit coalbunkers where the coal is stored for feeding into pulverizing mill through rotary feeder. PULVERISED FUEL SYSTEM:The boiler fuel firing system is tangentially firing system in which the fuel is introduced from wind nozzle located in the four corners inside the boiler. Fuel Oil System:The functional requirement of the fuel burning system is to supply a controllable and uninterrupted flammable furnace input of fuel and air and to continuously ignite and burn the fuel as rapidly as it is introduced into the furnace. These burners are placed in the corners of the furnace and they send horizontal streams of air and fuel tangent in the center of the furnace. surrounds the fuel nozzles. Major factors that assist for efficient combustion are the temperature inside the furnace and turbulence. The rotary feeders feed the coal to pulverize mill at a definite rate. which causes rapid mixing of fuel and air. Then coal burners are employed to fire the pulverized coal along with primary air into furnace. The Fuel air (secondary air) provided FD fan. Since this air provides covering for the fuel nozzles so it is called as mantle air. Furnace is designed for efficient and complete combustion. The fuel burning system should function such that fuel and air input is ignited continuously and immediately upon its entry into furnace. Dampers are provided 18 . This system provides efficient conversion of chemical energy of fuel into heat energy. In modern boilers.

Boiler Drum:The drum is a pressure vessel. Coal burners distribute the fuel and air evenly in the furnace. Ignition takes place when the flammable furnace input is heated above the ignition temperature. It provides water storage for preventing the saturation of tubes. Ignition energy is usually supplied in the form of heat. The steam purification primarily depends on the extent of moisture removal. 19 . No flammable mixture should be allowed to accumulate in the that quantity of air can be modulated. Its function is to separate water and steam from the mixture (of steam & water) generated in the furnace walls. The drum internals reduce the dissolved solids content of the steam to below the acceptable limit. It also houses the equipment needed for purification of steam. Drum is made up of two halves of carbon steel plates having thickness of 133 mm. This ignition energy is provided by oil guns and by igniters. since solids in steam are carried by the moisture associated with it.

Manhole is used for facilitating the maintenance person to go inside the drum for maintenance. Water from the drum goes to water walls through six down comers. riser tubes stubs and super heater outlet tube stubs. movement of fluid from the drum to the combustion zone and back to boiler drum.e. The top and bottom semi cylinders with hemispherical dished ends are fusion welded to form the boiler drum.e. Feed water is supplied to the drum from the economizer through feed nozzles. Main parts of boiler drum are:• • • • • • • Feed pipe Riser tube Down comer Baffle plate Chemical dosing pipe Turbo separation Screen dryer 20 . down comer stubs. The drum is provided with stubs for welding all the connecting tubes i.The top half and bottom half are heated in a plate heating furnace at a very high temperature and are pressured to form a semi cylindrical shape. The drum is provided with manholes and manhole covers. The drum form the part of boiler circulating system i. Boiler drum is located at a height of 70m from ground.

Two air fans are usually provided. fans trip the scanner air fan will draw air from atmosphere through emergency damper.D.

which contains more heat than the saturated steam at the same pressure i. This raises the temperature of the furnace gases. In an economizer. it. The use of economizer results in saving fuel consumption and higher boiler efficiency but needs extra investment. The flue gases flow outside the tubes. thus improving the overall efficiency of the boiler. Cooling of flue gases by 20% raises the plant efficiency by 1%.The flue gases coming out of the boiler carry lot of economiser extracts a part of this heat heat.

Turbine – boiler interlocks safe guarding the boiler against possibility furnace explosion owing to flame failure. It converts the potential or kinetic energy of the working substance into 28 .

Such a turbine is broadly termed as impulse turbine. PRINCIPAL OF OPERATION OF STEAM TURBINE:(1. When the working substance is steam it is called the steam turbine. The passage of steam through moving part the commonly called the blade. The process of expansion and direction changing may occur once or a number of times in succession and may be carried out with difference of detail. The rapidly moving particles of steam. This constitutes the driving force of the machine. may take place in such a manner that the pressure at the outlet side of the blade is equal to that at the inlet inside. enter the moving part of the turbine and here suffer a change in direction of motion which gives rose to change of momentum and therefore to a force.mechanical power by virtue of dynamic action of working substance. The steam is caused to fall in pressure in a passage of nozzle: due to this fall in pressure a certain amount of heat energy is converted into mechanical kinetic energy and the steam is set moving with a greater velocity.) Working of the steam turbine depends wholly upon the dynamic action of Steam. 29 .

The blades are attach to the rotating elements are attached to the stationary part of the turbine which is usually termed the stator. or Sets of such elements. (3. Impulse reaction turbine.) On the other hand the pressure of the steam at outlet from the moving blade may be less than that at the inlet side of the blades. certain types of turbine have come into existence.(2. the drop in pressure suffered by the steam during its flow through the moving causes a further generation of kinetic energy within the blades and adds to the propelling force which is applied to the turbine rotor. 30 .

Due to this reason barrel type casing are especially suitable for quick start up and loading. The HP turbine exhaust (CRH) leading to reheater have two swing check valves that prevent back flow of hot steam from reheater.turbine rotors and generator rotor are rigidly coupled. The moving and stationary blades are inserted into appropriately shapes into inner casing and the shaft to reduce leakage losses at blade tips. The double flow inner casing is supported kinematically in the outer casing. The centre flows compensates the axial thrust and prevent steam inlet temperature affecting brackets. The steam from HP turbine after reheating enters the inner casing from above and below through two inlet nozzles. The arrangements of inner casing confines high steam inlet condition to admission branch of casing. The steam coming from reheater called HRH is passed to turbine via two combined stop and control valves. while the joints of outer casing is subjected only to lower pressure and temperature at the exhaust of inner casing. 33 . into HP turbine.
