Use of cooling water in coal fired thermal power plants to hydro-electric power plants development


Pravin Bhagwat Khachane

This report deals with use of cooling water in 25MWe to 500 MWe coal fired thermal power plants to Hydro-electric power plants development. The water required for condensation of steam in condenser ranges from 1 m3/sec to 20 m3/sec from 25 MWe to 500 MWe capacity coal fired thermal power plants. This large quantity of water is taken from nearby river or reservoir with the help of pumping station. After complete process of condensation cooling water is again send to river or reservoir which has natural head(ranges from 2 to 10m) or gauge pressure(ranges from 0.2 to 1barg pressure).This water has very high pressure energy, this pressure energy can be converted into electrical energy with the help of Kaplan type hydro-electric power plant installation. This generation of electricity from hydro-electric power plant will be ranges from 16 KWe to 1628 KWe in which CO2 emission reduction will be ranges from 173 to 17,363 tons per year and required coal reduction for generation of electricity will be ranges from 62,400 to 62,53,714 kg per year.
