  • Fossil Fuel Power Station

    4909 Words  | 20 Pages

    A fossil-fuel power station is a type of power station that burns fossil fuels such as coal,natural gas or petroleum (oil) to produce electricity. Central station fossil-fuel power plants are designed on a large scale for continuous operation. In many countries, such plants provide most of the electrical energy used. Fossil fuel power stations have rotating machinery to convert the heat energy of combustioninto mechanical energy, which then operates an electrical generator. The prime mover may be

  • Nuclear Energy : Nuclear Power Station

    3116 Words  | 13 Pages

    Introduction A nuclear energy plant is a power station that produces electricity from nuclear reactions. Like other conventional thermal power stations, nuclear power plants heat up water into steam that is then used to drive power generators. The nuclear reactions involve extremely radioactive elements that contain a lot of energy. These are atoms with an unstable nucleus that continually emit small packets of energy called radiation in an attempt to attain a stable configuration (Timberlake, 2013)

  • Nuclear Power : A Case Study On The 1986 Disaster At The Chernobyl Atomic Power Station

    1753 Words  | 8 Pages

    Introduction Nuclear power plays a hugely important role in the generation of today’s world’s everyday energy needs. Accounting for around 11% of the world’s energy needs, nuclear energy is generally harnessed using uranium as the fuel [1]. Within a nuclear reactor, a neutron collides with a uranium nucleus to induce a chain fission reaction. This is a reaction in which the nucleus of an atom splits to form two separate atoms, with a great quantity of energy being released in the process [2].
