How a Power Station Works
How a Power Station Works.
First, before the coal is burned, it is smashed and pulverised untill it feels and looks like talcum powder. Then it is mixed with hot air and blowned into the firebox of the boiler.
The coal and air mixture creates the maximum heat possible.
Then, the heat turns water into steam and the steam reaches 537.7777777777778°C and then piped into the turbine.
Next, the steam pushes against the turbine turning the turbine shaft. The shaft is connected to a generator where magnets spin inside wire coils to produce electricity.
Now the steam goes through a condenser. Tons of water collected by a nearby river is inserted in the condenser making the steam change back into water.
Then the process is done all over again.
