Expert Answer:

Dear student,

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.
