Fossil-fuel power generation

Fossil-fuel power generation (coal, petroleum, natural gas)


Steam turbine

A steam turbine uses high-temperature and high-pressure steam to rotate shafts of electric generator.

Cogeneration power plants (Combined heat and power plants)

Cogeneration is simultaneous production of electricity, by gas turbine which  runs by combustion of fuel, and by steam turbine which uses the wasted heat  from gas turbine.

It is a highly efficient power generation system. Cogeneration  plants can reach efficiency ratings higher than 50%.

Environmental impacts can  be further reduced by using LNG as fuel, because LNG emits no SOx nor dust  when combusted.

Gas turbine

A gas turbine, also referred to as "gas  turbine engine," is a internal combustion  engine fueled either with fuel oil or gas. 

The combustion gas drives a turbine to  generate electric power.

Due to the high  output capacity, gas turbines are used to  supply power during peak.
