Hopes on Power Sector becoming true by Modi Governement

  Modi who is our Prime Minister of our country is have a right vision towards an inceridable India to transform the country India from a developing country to a developed state. But this will not be a work or  a part of the job of a single person we all should be a part of his goals, ideas and methodology of working strategy in such a way that you can also be a part of developing the county and believe that your hand is also there under development. our budget also gave a hope to the Indian power sector in such  a way that there are number of opportunities for the development of the thermal power plants and the supply of the coal to all newly installed ideal thermal power plants which is more than 30,000 MW. From the last two year the job opportunities availabilities in this sector sector is also less when compared to the other once. * Some of the highlights of the power Budget are: - Extension of 10 years tax holiday - Adequate coal supply to the power plants - Launch of f


Since the turn of the 20th Century, the use of electricity has been a fundamental part of the various aspects that make up our daily lives. Without electricity, the Industrial Revolution would not have been possible, and the world we know today would be a much darker place. Almost all the energy we use comes from various fossil fuels, in particular, coal.  Coal power is one key electricity source that is responsible for generating vast quantities of reliable, inexpensive power to nations around the world. In recent years, coal has become increasingly important, especially as the supplies of natural gas and oil continue to diminish. In addition, the world's coal reserves are expected to last centuries. Due to these factors, coal-based power is used heavily around the world. Resource


Availability Based Tariff   (ABT) is a frequency based pricing mechanism for electric power. The ABT falls under   electricity market   mechanisms to charge and regulate power to achieve short term and long term network stability as well as incentives and dis-incentives to market participants against deviations in committed supplies as the case may be. ABT Mechanism ( Energy policy of India ) is adopted in India (ABT Order dated January 2000 of CERC) and in a few other countries for pricing bulk power across various stakeholders. ABT concerns itself with the tariff structure for bulk power and is aimed at bringing about more responsibility and accountability in power generation and consumption through a scheme of incentives and disincentives. As per the notification, ABT was initially made applicable to only central generating stations having more than one SEB/State/Union Territory as its beneficiary.  Through this scheme, the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission   (CERC)

Boiler systems

Boiler systems are classified in a variety of ways. They can be classified according to the end use, such as foe heating, power generation or process requirements. Or they can be classified according to pressure, materials of construction, size tube contents (for example, waterside or fireside), firing, heat source or circulation. Boilers are also distinguished by their method of fabrication. Accordingly, a boiler can be pack aged or field erected. Sometimes boilers are classified by their heat source. For example, they are often referred to as oil-fired, gas-fired, coal-fired, or solid fuel –fired boilers. Types of boilers: Fire tube boilers : Fire tube boilers consist of a series of straight tubes that are housed inside a water-filled outer shell. The tubes are arranged so that hot combustion gases flow through the tubes. As the hot gases flow through the tubes, they heat the water surrounding the tubes. The water is confined by the outer shell of boiler. To avoid the

nuclear fusion

Ah, fusion. Long promised, both on Do the Math and in real life, fusion is regarded as the ultimate power source—the holy grail—the “arrival” of the human species. Talk of fusion conjures visions of green fields and rainbows and bunny rabbits…and a unicorn too, I hear. But I strike too harsh a tone in my jest. Fusion is indeed a stunningly potent source of energy that falls firmly on the reality side of the science fiction divide—unlike unicorns. Indeed, fusion has been achieved (sub break-even) in the lab, and in the deadliest of bombs. On the flip side, fusion has been actively pursued as the heir-apparent of nuclear fission for over 60 years. We are still decades away from realizing the dream, causing many to wonder exactly what kind of “dream” this is. Our so-far dashed expectations seem incompatible with our sense of progress. Someone born in 1890 would have seen horses give way to cars, airplanes take to the skies, the invention of radio, television, and computers, development o
