Basic LayoutandWorkingofa Thermal PowerPlantAlmost two third of electricity requirement of the world is fulfilled by thermal powerplants(or thermal powerstations). In these powerstations, steamis produced by burning some fossil fuel (e.g. coal) and then used to run a steamturbine. Basic Layout and Working of a Thermal Power Plant Is this answer helpful?Thanks!Give more feedbackThanks!How can it be improved?How can the answer be improved?Tell us how Basic Layout and Working of a Thermal Power Plant Typical layout and working of a Thermal Power Plant. Generally, bituminous coal or brown coal is used as fuel. The coal is stored in either 'dead storage' or in 'live storage'. Dead storage is generally 40 days backup coal storage which is used when coal supply is unavailable. Live storage is a Steam Power Plant - Working Principle & Schematic Diagram A generating station which converts heat energy of coal combustion into electrical energy is known as a steam power station can also be called as the thermal power station or thermal power generating plant.
