Energy and its transformstion
Household uses: the operating of electncal appliances, heating systems, hot water systems, heat for cool.ing and for means of transport, for example.
Industnal uses: the operating of factones and companies, construction, agnculture and so on.
It can be easily transformed into other forms of energy, such aslight and heat.
It can be transported long distances inexpensively and with veryhttle energy being lost
Electric power plants
Electric power plants are facilities where pnmary or secondary energyis transformed into electnmty, Once electricity is generated, it must betransported to towns, cities or industrial parks.
Transport and distribution of electrical energy
Electnc power plants are usually located far away from the points wherethe energy is used for safety reasons, space requirements or physical and geographical considerations
Conventional electric power plants
Nuclear power plants this type of plant includes a nuclear fission reactor that produrces thepressunsed steam needed to move the turbme rotor.Uranium ts the main fuel used.
Nuclear power plantsThis type of plant tm.ludes a nuclear fission reactor that produr.es thepressunsed steam needed to move the turbme rotor.Uranium ts the main fuel used.
Fossil fuel thermal power plants
At this type of power plant, water is heated in a boiler by the heatgenerated from the combustion of a fossil fuel, usually natural gas or coal
Combined cycle power plant
Efectnctty ts generated as a result of two combined cycles, a cycle that uses air and gas, and a conventional thermal cycle Dunng the first cycle,a gas turbine is used that includes a compressor.
Hydroelectric power plants
This type of power plant uses the potential energy provided by the height of the stored water in a dam, converting it mto kinetic energy this energy moves the blades of the turbine
Gravity-driven hydraulic power plants
Pump-dniven hydraulic power plants
Non-conventional electric power plants
The environmental problems caused by conventional power plants haveled to the creation and development of non-conventional or alternativeenergy power plants.
Wind power plants and wind farms
These power plants use the kinetic energy uf the wind to movethe blades of a rotor at the top of a tower, this is referred to as thewind turbine.
Solar power plants
hese plants use the energy from the sun There are wo main types of instaflations: photo-thermal and hotovoltaic power plants.
Photo-thermal power plant
In this type of power plant, the heat generated by solar radiation produces steam that is used to move the rotor in he generator.
. Geothermal power plants
These plants use the heat found at deep levels in the earth. This heatmay reach the surface in the form of steam, gases or hot water.Geothermal energy may be used directly — for hot water and heating,industnal use and so on — and indirectly — the heat generates steam, whichproduces electricity.
Biomass thermal power plants
Biomass consists of all organic compounds that are produced through natural processes They may come from the following sources.
Ocean power plants
These power plants use the energy from the seas and the oceans. Theconcept is to use three types of energy from the sea.
E nvironmental impact
The building and operating of an ejectncai power plant results in an ecological change in that region T his is due both to the construction of the necessary infrastructure and the waste that this activity generates.
