EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION Equipped with a single, powerful motor, a generator and an antenna, a power plant is essentially a large power station with the capacity to produce electricity from the sun or natural gas.
When all three are in operation, a station can produce up to 200 megawatts of electricity.
EQUIPMENTS AND SYSTEMS Power station equipment consists of the following: A generator: A large, compact, diesel generator that is used to power the grid.
It has a diameter of about 2 metres (6 feet) and generates about 100 megawatts.
A transmission line: A long, flexible cable that connects the generator to the grid and provides power to the rest of the system.
A power grid: A network of transmission lines that connect power plants to the power grid, providing electricity to every home in Ontario.
The transmission line is a large metal cable, usually wrapped around a heavy wooden frame that connects it to the generator and provides electrical power.
A network generator: An industrial-grade generator that provides power from the generator.
The network generator consists of a generator, a battery pack and a compressor.
The generator produces electricity from diesel, diesel fuel or compressed natural gas, depending on the type of power plant being used.
The compressor drives a generator.
An electrical power plant: A power plant with a large capacity and multiple generators.
These can provide electricity to an entire grid, including the distribution system and the transmission lines.
The generators operate in accordance with the principles of a distributed system.
The equipment and systems on this list are typically the most complex and costly components of power plants.
A typical power plant equipment includes a generator that generates electricity from natural gas (sometimes called natural gasified coal), diesel or compressed gas.
The power plant also includes a battery and a transmission line.
The electrical power system consists of an array of electrical power plants and transmission lines connected by electrical power lines.
An electric power plant can be any type of natural gas-fired or natural oil-fired power plant, but power plants with a natural gas or oil-fueled design are generally the most common.
Electricity is generated from a mix of gas, oil or both, with the most important fuel being natural gas and natural gas compressed.
Power plants with natural gas fueled power plants are often referred to as natural gas powered.
Natural gas power plants generate electricity from a combination of gas and steam.
Natural oil-based power plants use a combination or blend of hydrocarbons and oil, such as bitumen.
Hydrocarbons are a mixture of oil and water.
The gas, water and oil mix is used for heating, electricity generation and storage.
Electricity generated from natural oil plants is usually generated using steam and steam condensers.
Natural oils are natural oils derived from natural resources, including oil shale, oil sands, bitumen, oil shale deposit and oil sands tar sands.
They can be found in the oil sands or from other types of hydrocarbon deposits.
Hydrocarbon fuels can be derived from petroleum, natural gas liquids, oil, coal, natural water or other forms of hydrochemicals.
Natural gasoline, natural diesel, natural natural jet, natural coal, and natural natural gas are also known as natural or natural-gas fuels.
These fuels are the same as conventional natural gas but are produced in natural gas plants or natural oils plants.
In addition, they are derived from other sources, such the combustion of natural oil, natural gasoline or natural diesel or natural jet.
Electricity from a natural oil plant can also be produced using natural gas power.
Hydroelectric power plants also produce electricity, but hydroelectric plants are less efficient at producing electricity.
Hydro-electric power is produced by using steam to generate electricity.
A hydroelectric plant is often called a steam plant, steam turbine, steam generator, steam pump or steam turbine generator.
A steam turbine uses steam to convert steam to electricity.
In some cases, the steam used in the turbine is converted into electricity as well.
For example, a steam turbine produces electricity by producing heat.
A turbine typically produces electricity when the steam is released from the steam generator.
In order to generate power, a turbine uses an electrical power source such as a transformer or generator.
It can also use a turbine engine to generate steam.
The electricity produced by a steam generator is then transferred to a steam pipe or to another source such a transformer, generator or converter.
Another type of steam generator that can produce electricity is a water pump, steam converter, steam plant or a steam pump turbine.
A water pump or a water turbine generator can be a type of turbine, a type that is a steam engine, or a type used to convert water to electricity, depending upon the nature of the water.
When the water is pumped from a tank or well, it is typically heated and cooled by a condenser, a device that captures and converts heat from the water to power a steam or turbine.
For instance, the water pump can convert the water heated by the water turbine to electricity by
