First they put the fuel in a burner to burn it, then when it is burning it heats up water above it which cause the water to produce steam. The steam is used to turn turbines then the turbines turn the generators, which then leads to energy.

What is the defeniton of a fossil fuel power plant?
A fossil fuel power plant is a system of devices for the conversion of fossil fuel energy to mechanical work or electric energy ...
Asked in Energy
How does electrical energy get its energy?
According to Softpedia: "Most of the electric energy production process takes place in power plants burning fossil fuel, such as coal, natural gas or crude oil, which accounts for the massive amounts of greenhouse gases emitted daily in the Earth's atmosphere. Heat produced during fuel burning is used to evaporate large amounts of water and create steam that powers a steam turbine, turning the energy extracted during burning fuel into mechanical work. By connecting a mechanical generator to the turbine's drive shaft, the...
How does a charging station work?
A charging station works by providing electricity to the car it is charging. There is no way for a charging station to not use electricity because the form of power it transmits is electricity. ...
Would a failing O2 sensor cause excess fuel consumption on a daewoo cielo?
Yes it would. O2 sensors work with the car's ECM to tell the car how to burn the fuel and how the fuel is burning. This is a strong possibility. ...

How does combustion work?
Any combustion needs Fuel, Oxygen and heat. In a petrol engine, the fuel and air are mixed in either a carburettor, or a fuel injector system. The heat is supplied by the spark plug and maintained once the mixture is burning rapidly. The massive expansion of the burning gas, is used to push the piston. In a CI (compression ignition diesel) engine, The air is drawn in, diesel fuel is sprayed into it and the piston compresses it. This compression alone, causes heat,...

Asked in Global Warming, Oceans and Seas
Is pumping carbon into the ocean carbon sequestration?
No, carbon sequestration is a plan to capture carbon dioxide from fossil fuel power plants before it reaches the atmosphere, compress it and pump it underground into supposedly secure locations where it will remain forever and never escape. The owners of the fossil fuel power plants, who desperately want to continue burning coal, are particularly hopeful that this plan will work. ...
Asked in Rainforests
Problem of power station in the rainforest?
THE main type of power station in the rain forest is a hydroelectric one that gets power from the energy made by water (look up hydroelectric power stations to see how they work). In order to do this the power station needs to have two or more huge reservoir's. Huge amounts of forest are flooded to make these reservoirs killing animal and plant life in the process. ...
Asked in Computer Science
What do you mean by work station in computer science?
A work station is considered a computer that has enough computing power to run large calculations, often which is required for users working in a work environment most notably in science. Desktops would be considered a work station. There may also be additional requirements, see here "webopedia.com/TERM/W/workstation.html" ...
