The unit is designed to simulate modern steam power plant. Main components consist of a feed water system, a small industrial boiler, a steam turbine, a generator and lamp load, a condenser with a condensate tank and a pump, and a cooling tower. Accessories such as fuel tank, fuel flow meter, feed water meter, and a stack are also included. Instruments are provided for measurement of pressures, temperatures, output voltage and currents.
- Measurement of feed water and fuel flow rates.
- Boiler efficiency, turbine generator efficiency, and overall power plant efficiency.
- Condenser heat transfer efficiency.
- Cooling tower efficiency.
