Power Generation

Steam Turbine Power Plants

Power plants are used all across the world to generate electricity. The main goal of a steam turbine power plant is to transform thermal energy to electrical power using the Rankine cycle. Water is heated in a boiler to produce steam which is then sent through a turbine to produce motion to drive a generator. (Image ref. [29])

Gas Turbine Power Plants

Gas turbine power plants burn fuels such as natural gas to drive a turbine. The output from the gas turbine is used to turn a generator in order to produce electricity. (Image ref. [128])

Combined Cycle Plants

A Combined Cycle consists of two different thermodynamic power cycles combined in a single plant. Commonly a gas turbine is operated to produce power with it's exhaust used to provide heat input for a Rankine cycle. (Image ref. [130])

Cogeneration

Cogeneration systems provide two energy outputs, such as electricity and thermal energy for heating purposes. (Image ref. [129])

Generator Set

A generator set is a combination of an engine, typically a diesel engine, and a generator that is coupled with the engine. This set allows for a convenient package that is usually used on sites where emergency backup power may be needed. (Image ref. [129])

Heating and Cooling

Centralized Heating and Cooling Plants

Centralized heating and cooling plants provide heating and cooling from a centralized location to its neighbooring facilities. Heating and/or cooling plants provide steam and chilled water for applications such as hot water storage, space heating, and air conditioning. (Image ref. [129])

Transportation

Military Tanks

These heavily armored vehicles utilize gas turbines or internal combustion engines for propulsion under harsh and challenging conditions. (Image ref. [10])
