How does a steam generator produce energy?

You say a steam generator. The equipment is actually a steam driven turbine coupled to a generator. Steam from the thermal source, either fossil fired or nuclear, drives the turbine which is mechanically coupled to the generator which produces the electrical output


How do you produce electricity from biogas?

You can use the bio gas to fuel either a steam cycle generator or a gas turbine.


How does heat energy become electricity?

In a power plant the heat produced either by burning fossil fuels or in a nuclear reactor is used to produce steam which is fed to a turbine which drives an electric generator


What is an example of the transfer from nuclear energy to mechanical energy?

Nuclear energy is used to boil water in order to produce steam. The steam is used to drive a turbine that can either be mechanically hooked up, i.e. the propeller on a nuclear submarine, or the turbine can be linked to a generator which then powers an electric motor.


How do nuclear produce electricity?

The produced nuclear energy manifests itself as heat energy transferred to the coolant passing by it and heats it up. The coolant is either transforms directly into steam (as in boiling water reactors) or it transfers its heat to another secondary coolant (through a steam generator) transferring it into steam. The steam flows to a turbine to operate it and the turbine consequently turns and electric generator that produces electricity.

How do thermal energy transfer to electrical energy?

Either heat air and force through a turbine, or heat water into steam (and use a turbine or a steam engine). Then connect to a generator.


Why does nuclear fission produce electrical energy for consumers?

Nuclear energy is produced through the nuclear fission. The produced nuclear energy manifests itself as heat energy transferred to the coolant passing by it and heats it up. The coolant is either transforms directly into steam (as in boiling water reactors) or it transfers its heat to another secondary coolant (through a steam generator) transferring it into steam. The steam flows to a turbine to operate it and the turbine consequently turns and electric generator that produces electricity.


How is water used to generate electricity?

Flowing or falling water can be harnessed to turn a waterwheel or spin a turbine, either of which can be connected to a generator. The kinetic energy of water (imparted by gravity) is converted into electric power by that generator.


In a modern coal-fired power plant the mechanical energy of turbines is converted into electrical energy by?

The turbine is solidly connected to the generator, which is similar to a very large AC generator that you have in a car, but produces a high voltage output, usually something like 20 kV. The whole assembly rotates at a rate to produce either 50 Hz or 60 Hz AC depending on the system it is part of.


Generator is moving 3000 RPM on 320Mw powerif full load rejected and any protection is not activate generator work as a motor what are damage possible?

depends on many things, including the type of prime mover (what is powering generator?). Presuming a steam turbine (or possibly combustion turbine though that's large for a single CT-gen) at that size and speed. "Rejection" of load is a term often misused. I'll presume correct use in this case, meaning that the generator remains connected to the grid, but for some reason has stopped producing power. If on the other hand what was meant was the generator was disconnected from the grid, it will not "motor". Upon rejection of load with no change in prime mover, the turbine would increase speed to a point where turbine over-speed protection would trip the prime mover to the turbine (fuel or steam), perhaps depending on design there may be some pre-emergency turbine controls to help reduce or control speed to below the trip point (perhaps about 110%, again depending on design). but if there is no controls that operate (including on turbine) turbine-generator unit may speed to point of damage (even destruction) as the centrifugal force of the higher speed exceeds design characteristics of the unit. Back to original question... If the generator rejected load due to loss of its field current, or either an open or short circuit in the generator, it likely will not motor. However, if the generator remains wholly intact and connected to the grid (meaning the reason for rejecting load is the loss or reduction of the prime mover to the driving turbine), the generator will motor. Possible generator damage could occur due to heating or pole piece shifting, depending on how sudden the change of phase angle (power flow) occurred. More likely, is (steam) turbine damage caused by overheating, most often starting with the lower pressure area blading. It is not uncommon to "motor" hydro electric generators operating either as a pump, or as a synchronous condenser for voltage or VAR control. But hydro-turbine-generators operate much slower RPM, with larger mass and damage is not incurred.


How do you turn sun into energy?

Through the use of solar panels, or through photosynthesisAnswer 2The solar radiation is transformed either to: heat through the CSP method that could produce steam to turn a turbine that spins the electric generator to produce electric energy; orproduce directly electric energy through the photovoltaic method.


Can a motor work as a generator?

since the physical construction of a DC motor and DC generator is the same,it can work either way.in other words,yes a DC motor can work as a DC generator(if you drive it by a primemover it will produce electricity).however its not possible with all AC motors.


What are turbines attached to?

Turbines are attache to either alternator or generator which converts mechanical energy to electric energy. Turbines convert the kinetic energy into mechanical energy. (Eg. steam turbine is a prime-mover in which te potential energy of the steam is transformed into kinetic energy and latter in its turn is transformed into the mechanical energy of the rotation of the turbine shaft)


What is the process of manufacture of nuclear energy?

Nuclear energy to produce electricity is obtained from nuclear reactors, which are assemblies of uranium rods surrounded by a moderator and which can be made to produce a chain reaction of fissioning of the active part of the uranium (U235), which produces heat. The heat output raises steam either in separate boiler units (PWR) or within the reactor pressure vessel (BWR), which is then used to drive a steam turbine/generator which operates similarly to one in a coal or gas fired plant.


What happens to a wind turbine if the wind is to strong?

the turbine will either fall down or it will just stop working


How were turbines made?

Quite simply, a turbine is any device that converts fluid motion into usable energy. The first turbine would either be the aeolipile (ca. 100 BCE), which was two opposite vents that created thrust in one direction using steam, or naturally powered machines such as windmills and water wheels.


How is the energy in fossil fuels released?

The fuel is burnt, either in a fire to hear the area, or in a stove to cook or warm the room, or in a boiler to warm the place or, to produce steam to drive a turbine to generate electricity.


How the polarity of generator be the same with reverse rotation?

That would all depend on the construction and type of generator.A simple DC generator may use permanent magnets for the field. In this case, because the coils pass the field in the opposite direction, the output will be opposite.If the field windings are excited by an external source, the output can be controlled either way.


What is the best way to produce large amounts of electricity?

The cleanest and best way to produce large amounts of electricity is either wind or solar. With wind, large turbines connected to a generator are spun by wind while on the other hand solar is with solar cells.


How can one produce electricity at home?

In order for one to produce electricity at home, they would need either solar panels on their roof or get a electical turbine to catch the wind and turn it into power. There are many products avilable on the market for people who want to do this and can even get government credit for making these modifications to their home.


What causes a turbo not to spool up?

Either the turbo/turbine housing is too large, the waste gate is stuck open, or the turbine fins are damaged.


Are turbine attic vents are best to ventalate your attic?

I think its a feel good thing, either hot air moving out of the attic turns the turbine, or wind, but either way, the turbine is outside, it is not connected to a fan inside, so just a straight opening with the same amount of square inches would vent as well,


What is an energy source that can be converted into electricity?

There are 6 types of energy. An acronym you can remember them by is MR.CENT. It stands for mechanical,radiant,chemical,electrical,nuclear and thermal. Mechanical energy is from the movement of objects and are sometimes stuff like rotating a wheel to spin a turbine for a generator. Nuclear energy is used through fusion and fission. Fission is where the nuclei split apart and the energy will turn a turbine fro a generator that will produce electricity. Fusion is when the nuclei fuse together to create a larger one. Thermal and chemical energy will also spin turbines through either steam or the burning of biofuels. Radiant is light from other sources like the sun that will use solar cells to create energy. There are many renewable ones like hydroelectric, solar, biofuel. Hope this helped.
