CAN'T WE USE OTHER THEN FUELS(LIKE COAL PETROLIUM) TO GENERATE ELECTRICITY IN THERMAL POWER PLANT?
Asked by prakharsrivastava | 19th May, 2010, 11:49: AM
Actually, coal can be used in a thermal power plant. For example, coal of calorific value of 5000 kcal/k.An ordinary coal is harnessed with the use of thermal power plant to light our houses.
Power plants that burn oil to produce electricity are called oil-fired plants. They are no different in general principle and operation from the coal-fired and natural gas-fired plants.
Hope this helps.
