6 Diagram of a modern coal power plant (Source: Masters, Renewable and Efficient Electric Power Systems, 2004)
7 Steam Turbines and their Governors Steam turbines can have non-reheat, single-reheat or doublereheat. The steam flow is controlled by the governor. The main amplifier of the governing system and valve mover is an oil servomotor that is controlled by a pilot valve. Main and reheat stop valves are normally fully open - they are used only during generator start-up and shut down.
8 The electric generator Governor controls turbine torque and power Exciter controls voltage and reactive power
9 Violent Failure of a steam-driven generator! The explosion below was caused by a faulty valve that prevented the cutoff of steam into the turbine when the generator went off line, leading the generator to accelerate to over 6,000 rpm. The High speed caused parts of the generator to tear apart. Hydrogen escaped from the cooling system, causing the explosion.
10 Nuclear Power Plants: Number of Generators 100 Total Capacity 100 GW
11 Diagram of a nuclear power plant Types of nuclear reactors: Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) Boiling Water Reactor (BWR) Nuclear Fission
12 Natural Gas Power Plants: Number of Generators 5,500 Total Capacity 450 GW
13 Open cycle gas turbine: Typical efficiency: 30-35% Air-breathing jet engines are gas turbines optimized to produce thrust from the exhaust gases. In our case, the system is optimized to produce maximum shaft power.
14 Combined cycle power plant: Typical efficiency: 60-65% Efficiencies are even higher when the steam is used for district heating or industrial processes.
15 Hydro Power Plants: Number of Generators 4,000 Total Capacity 80 GW
16 Hydro Power plants Low and medium head plants use Francis turbines High head plants use Pelton wheel turbines
17 Electricity production from renewables HYDRO
18 Hydropower Hydropower relies on the water cycle. Herein: Solar energy heats water on the surface, causing it to evaporate. This water vapor condenses into clouds and falls back onto the surface as precipitation (rain, snow, etc.). The water flows through rivers back into the oceans, where it can evaporate and begin the cycle over again
19 Renewable Power Plants: Large plants are connected to the sub-transmission or transmission system
20 Renewable Power Plants: Small plants are connected to the distribution system (often on the load side)
21 Electricity production from renewables: Photovoltaics
22 Growth in Solar Photovoltaic The past decade has seen explosive growth in global solar photovoltaic installations. Countries with the most PV capacity in (MWp)
24 Electricity production from renewables: concentrating Solar power
25 Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) CSP technologies use mirrors to reflect and concentrate sunlight onto receivers that collect the solar energy and convert it into heat. This thermal energy can then be used to produce electricity via a steam turbine or heat engine driving a generator. CSP systems are typically classified by how the various systems collect solar energy. The three main systems are The linear system The tower system The dish system.
26 Linear CSP Nevada Solar 1 (65 MW)
27 Power tower CSP 110 MW CSP near Tonopah, NV (under construction)
28 Dish/Engine CSP Systems
29 Electricity production from renewables: Biomass
30 Biomass Energy Landfill Energy near Las Vegas, NV (12 MW)
31 Electricity production from renewables: Ocean power
32 Ocean Power Energy can be extracted from the power of the waves, from the tide, or from ocean currents
33 Capturing Ocean Power Attenuator Point Absorber Tidal Power Oscillating Water Column Ocean Current
34 Electricity production from renewables: Wind
35 Wind Power inland and offshore
36 Installed Wind Capacity by Country (MW)
37 US Wind Resource Map
38 Largest wind turbine generator Manufacturer: Enercon Rated power: 6 MW, Rotor diameter: 126 m, Total height; 198 m.
39 Wind Power in Nevada: Spring Valley Wind (Pine County): 152 MW
40 Electricity production from renewables: geothermal GEO- THERMAL
41 Geothermal Dry steam plants use steam piped directly from a geothermal reservoir to turn the generator turbines. The first geothermal power plant was built in 1904 in Tuscany, Italy. Flash steam plants take highpressure hot water from deep inside the Earth and convert it to steam to drive the generator turbines. When the steam cools, it condenses to water and is injected back into the ground to be used over and over again.

44 Basic Conventional Power System Layout
45 Step-up (Station) transformers: Size to 1000 MVA generator voltage up to 25 kv Transmission voltage up to 765 kv Forced Air and Forced Oil Cooling.
46 Basic Conventional Power System Layout
47 US Power Transmission Grid
48 High Voltage Power Lines (overhead) Common voltages in north America: 138, 230, 345, 500, 765 kv Bundled conductors are used in extra-high voltage lines Stranded instead of solid conductors are used.
49 High Voltage Power Cables (underground) Cable lines are designed to be placed underground in urban areas or under water. The conductors are insulated from one another and surrounded by protective sheath. Cable lines are more expensive and harder to maintain. They also have a large capacitance not suitable for long distance.
50 Tree Trimming underneath power lines Before After
51 Transmission System Protection Protective equipment needs to protect the system from overvoltages (surge arrestors) and over-currents (circuit breakers).
52 Long line series and shunt compensation Shunt reactors are used to compensate the line shunt capacitance under light load or no load. Series capacitors are often used to compensate the line inductive reactance in order to transfer more power.
53 Basic Conventional Power System Layout
54 Substation Transformers Typical size; 20 MVA Primary voltage down to 69 kv Secondary voltage down to 4.16kV
55 Distribution Substation Layout
56 Power distribution lines (placed underground in new urban areas) Primary Distribution voltages: 4.16, 12.47, 13.2, 13.8, 25, 34.5 kv
57 Power distribution transformers The distribution circuits may be overhead or underground. This will depend on the load density and the physical conditions of the particular area to be served.
58 Switched Capacitors
59 Basic Conventional Power System Layout
60 Electrical Power Utilization (electric load) Utilization voltage: 120V, 208V*, 240V, 277V, 480V*, 600V* 2/3 3/4 of electricity is consumed by motors
61 Demand Changes in demand of individual customers is fast and frequent due to load switching.
62 Substation Load: 48 hours The aggregated demand at the substation is smoother, and total load fluctuations are usually small.
63 MW and MVAR loading on a feeder 4 months
64 System Load (MW) System load: 24-hours The aggregated demand on the system is even smoother, and total load fluctuations are very small. The overall daily profile of load can be predicted reasonably well using forecasting tools Hour of Day
65 Seasonal Load Patterns The local load is dominated by winter and summer patterns, with May and October as shoulder months.
66 North American Electrical Interconnections The power system of North America is divided into four major Interconnections which can be thought of as independent islands. Western Generally everything west of the Rockies. Texas - Also known as Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). Eastern Generally everything east of the Rockies except Texas and Quebec. Quebec.
67 Western Interconnection
68 System monitoring. Analysis, Operation and Control Important Studies: Economic generation scheduling and unit commitment Power flow analysis Short-circuit analysis System stability and dynamic analysis Load forecasting System planning Etc
69 Generation-load balance As electricity itself cannot presently be stored on a large scale, changes in customer demand are met by controlling conventional generation, using stored fuels. Frequency is maintained as long as there is a balance between resources and customer demand (plus losses). An imbalance causes a frequency deviation.
