Conventional Power Plants


• Factors and parameters affecting the selection of Steam Power Plant capacities and sites
• National Unified Power Grid connecting power plants in Egypt.
• Basic Rankine Cycle processes on the property diagrams identifying the types of processes and their actual efficiency.
• Basic Rankine Cycle modifications, including, superheating the steam, increasing the boiler pressure and lowering the condenser pressure.
• Effect of steam Reheating.( Reheat Cycles)
• Effect of use of feed water heaters (Regenerative Cycles) showing the effect of number of feed water heaters.
