Power generation-related equipment refers to the machinery and technology used to generate electricity, such as power plants, generators, turbines, and transmission equipment. This can include fossil fuel power plants (e.g. coal, natural gas), nuclear power plants, hydroelectric power plants, wind turbines, and solar power systems. Additional power generation-related equipment includes:
- Steam turbines: used to convert the heat energy of steam into mechanical energy, which is then converted into electricity.
- Gas turbines: used to convert the chemical energy of a fuel (e.g. natural gas) into mechanical energy, which is then converted into electricity.
- Hydroelectric generators: used to convert the mechanical energy of falling water into electricity.
- Solar panels: used to convert sunlight into electricity through photovoltaic cells.
- Wind turbines: used to convert the kinetic energy of wind into electricity.
- Electrical energy storage systems such as batteries, flywheels, and pumped hydro.
It's worth noting that some of this equipment is also used in combination in certain power plants, for example, combined cycle gas turbine power plants which use both gas turbines and steam turbines.
