Components of Steam Power Plant:
There are four components of steam power plant:
1. The boiler: Hot-source reservoir in which the combustion gases raise steam.
2. Engine/Turbine: The steam reciprocating engine or turbine to convert portion of heat energy into mechanical work.
3. Condenser: Cold sinks into which heat is rejected.
4. Pump: Condensate extraction pump or boiler feed pump to return condensate back into boiler.
