Training provided by Marcep Inc. in power and energy sector, but first, let us understand these two terms i.e. power and energy. steam power, thermal power station, solar energy, thermal power plants in India
What is Power?
Power is the rate of doing work. It is the amount of energy consumed per unit time. It is a scalar quantity i.e it has no direction. In the SI system, the unit of power is the joule per second (J/s), known as the watt in the name of James Watt. James Watt developed the steam engine in the eighteenth century. Another common and traditional measure is horsepower (comparing to the power of a horse).

What is Power Station?
A power station, also referred to as a power plant, powerhouse, generating station and generating plant is an industrial facility for the generation of electric power. Most of the power stations contain one or more generators, a rotating machine that converts mechanical power into electrical power. The relative motion between a magnetic field and a conductor creates an electrical current. The energy source harnessed to turn the generator varies widely. Most power stations in the world burn fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas to generate electricity. Others use nuclear power, but there is an increasing use of cleaner renewable sources such as solar, the wind, wave and hydroelectric.

Different types of Power plants
1. Thermal power plants
Thermal power stations produce mechanical power by a heat engine that transforms thermal energy, mostly from combustion of fuel into rotational energy. Thermal power stations generate steam so often they are called steam power stations
