Circuit Breaker Operation Principle

It’s true that switchgear uses to perform the most arduous duty when it is in operation. For better understanding, we will learn about the circuit breakers operation in switchgear operating principles. It will be easy to understand switchgear operation principle if we know the circuit breaker operation principle. So let’s go. Circuit Breaker Operation Principle: Construction: Once I dismounted a 1000A MCCB. I found out the heart of a traditional circuit breaker is the contact system. Circuit breaker usually consists Read More …

Advantage and Disadvantage of Water Tube Boiler

Steam is an important source of energy for our modern age. We are using steam from the very beginning of our first industrial revolution in human history. Now we are using steam from the Textile Industry to Power Plant. In a Nuclear Power Plant steam use on a huge scale. For common usages, we use a very basic type of steam generator or boiler. Water Tube and Fire Tube Boiler are one of them. Both have some advantage and disadvantage. In Read More …

Construction and Working Principle of Velox Boiler

Velox Boiler is a high-pressure water tube boiler. Again if heat supplies through the tube and water supply around the tube then this boiler can be a fire tube boiler. Velox Boiler uses GAS in the Combustion Chamber. This Boiler has a unique basic theory than other boilers that we already discussed. When the GAS velocity exceeds the velocity of Sound, then the heat transfer rate form the GAS much higher than rate achieve in subsonic flow. Velox Boiler used Read More …

Construction and Working Principle of Loeffler Boiler

Loeffler Boiler is a high pressure, forced circulation and water tube boiler with the internal furnace. In this boiler, 65 percent of superheated steam is used to evaporate the water. Everything happens in the Evaporating Drum. All done by the help of Mixing Nozzle. Remain 35 percent of superheated steam, uses by two Steam Turbines. Construction of Loeffler Boiler: Loeffler Boilers consist of a feed water pump and it circulates water to the Economizer. Generally hot flue gas passes through the Read More …

Construction and Working Principle of Benson Boiler

In this post, we will learn about the Construction and Working Principle of Benson Boiler. I also published a couple of article about the industrial boiler and if you want you can find it here after reading this article. Before we go farther let’s know about the person who invented this supercritical industrial type boiler. This boiler was invented by Mark Benson between 1926 to 1927.  But in 1924, Siemens acquired the right to use Benson’s patent. He was a Bohemian German Read More …

Construction and Working Principle of Lamont Boiler

In this post, we will learn the Construction and Working Principle of Lamont Boiler. But who invented it? Ok, in the year of 1925, Lamont Boiler was invented by Walter Douglas La-Mont. Now let’s go and find out all about the Lamont Boiler. First, What is Lamont Boiler? Lamont Boiler is a water tube boiler which has an internally fired furnace, high pressure, forced water circulation system. As I say, forced water circulation system and for this reason, an external Read More …

Construction and Working Principle of Babcock and Wilcox Boiler

We already know that Boiler is an essential part of a thermal power plant. The boiler also uses in several industries like Dyeing Industry, Poultry Farm and others. This type of boiler called Industrial Boiler. What is a Water Tube Boiler? If a boiler having the system of water flow inside of its tube and heat flow system present in outside then it will be called a Water Tube Boiler. Water Tube Boiler can have Straight and Bent Tube, Cross, Read More …

Definition of Boiler and Various Types of Steam Boiler or Steam Generator

Steam is an important element for producing mechanical energy. We are using steam from the very beginning of our industrial revolution. Steam has some great advantage like we can generate steam from water which is available at any place and it does not participate in any chemical reaction with any others particle in power plant. Water can stay stable at a fixed temperature in the power plant. Steam used in a power plant for driving a steam engine and a Read More …

Classification of Power Plants Based on Energy Sources

Generating low-cost electricity is becoming more challenging every year and in the meantime, our demand is reaching the sky level. But we have a limited source of energy that we can convert to electricity. Till now the world is using 81% of energy from the source of fossil fuel. This enormous amount of fossil fuel burning creating the biggest threat for the climate and the human race. But without electricity is become impossible for us to lead our daily life. Read More …

Power Plant Classification Based on Fuel Type, Load and Place

Power Plant is the most efficient way that we can get low-cost electricity. For this reason, establishing a new Power Plant is much important for a country. Because our demand of using electricity is getting higher every year. We already know that making a new power plant for a country is always depends on the source of energy that can be converted to electricity. In this post, I will talk about the most common type of power plant based on Read More …
