1 413 POWER PLANT ENGINEERING PART-A 1. Define Power. Power is the rate at which energy is used (or) Energy/time. 2. What are the types of fuels? Solid fuel Liquid fuel Gaseous fuel (Any one among the above types) 3. Define calorific values and fuels. The heat energy liberated by the complete oxidation of unit mass is called calorific value. A substance which on burning with oxygen in the atmospheric air. 4. Define Tariff. The rate of charge per kilowatt hour of the energy supplied to the customer. 5. State the function of pulveriser. The pulverisers are the equipments which are used to powdered coal. 6. What is the function of surface condenser? It receives the exhaust steam from turbine and condense it. 7. What are the types of cooling tower? Atmospheric cooling tower. Natural draught cooling tower. Forced draught cooling tower. (Any one among the above types) 8. What is a Draught? It is the difference between absolute gas pressure and ambient atmospheric pressure. 9. State any two applications of hydro power plant. Higher utilisation factor,higher capacity factor. 10. What is the function of surge tank? The surge tank controls the water when the load on the turbine decreases and supplies water when load on turbine increases. 11. Mention any two safety measures in hydro power station. Screens, fish pass, sand traps. 12. Give the classification of hydraulic turbines. Impulse turbine, Reaction turbine. 13. What is the function of inter cooling? The heat supply and work ratio are increased. 14. State any two advantages of diesel engine power plant. Design and layout simple. It occupies less space. Located at any place. No stand by losses. (Any two among above advantages) 15. What is reheating? Increase the turbine output and reduce thermal efficiency.
