Rule of Cool - TV Tropes

Of scientific laws that this trope circumvents, the third law of motion is probably the most frequently revoked, with the Square-Cube Law probably a close second. The Second Law of Thermodynamics is third and a mention has to go to the laws of relativity, which prevent us from attaining Faster-Than-Light Travel and going to a distant planet in just a few hours.

What is a Transformer (And How Does it Work)? | Electrical4U

Feb 24, 2012 · Working Principle of Transformer. The working principle of a transformer is very simple.Mutual induction between two or more windings (also known as coils) allows for electrical energy to be transferred between circuits. This principle is explained in further detail below. Transformer Theory. Say you have one winding (also known as a coil) which is supplied by an alternating electrical source.

Impulse Turbine - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

The work produced in an impulse turbine with a single-stage running at the same blade speed is twice that of a reaction turbine. Hence, the cost of a reaction turbine for the same amount of work is much higher, since it requires more stages. It is a common practice to design multistage turbines with impulse stages in the first few stages to

Combined cycle power plant - Wikipedia

A combined cycle power plant is an assembly of heat engines that work in tandem from the same source of heat, converting it into mechanical energy.On land, when used to make electricity the most common type is called a combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plant.The same principle is also used for marine propulsion, where it is called a combined gas and steam (COGAS) plant.

Fire Tube Boiler | Operation and Types of Fire Tube Boiler

Feb 24, 2012 · Fire tube boiler is one of the most basic types of boiler and the design is also very old. It was popular in 18 th century. It was mainly used for steam locomotive engines. Operation of Fire Tube Boiler. Operation of fire tube boiler is as simple as its construction. In fire tube boiler, the fuel is burnt inside a furnace.The hot gases produced in the furnace then passes through the fire tubes.

Conservation of Energy Principle - an overview

One of the main and fundamentally guiding laws of life is the conservation of energy principle, which means that energy is neither created nor destroyed, but just changes forms, for example, heat to work in thermal power plants and work to heat in refrigerators and heat pumps. It also confirms that the total amount of energy is always conserved

Fire Tube Boiler Working Principle and Its Types

Fire Tube Boiler Construction and Working Principle of Fire Tube Boiler. The construction of a water tube boiler can be equipped with cylindrical shell, vertical, firebox in the base, space for water in the center segment, and space for steam in the higher segment. A fire-grate is located at the fire-box base as well as coal is fired-up on the

Rankine Cycle Steam Turbine Cycle - nuclear-power.net

Today, the Rankine cycle is the fundamental operating cycle of all thermal power plants where an operating fluid is continuously evaporated and condensed. It is the one of most common thermodynamic cycles, because in most of the places in the world the turbine is steam-driven.. In contrast to Carnot cycle, the Rankine cycle does not execute isothermal processes, because these must be performed

Water Tube Boilers | Spirax Sarco

Alternative water-tube boiler layouts. The following layouts work on the same principles as other water-tube boilers, and are available with capacities from 5 000 kg/h to 180 000 kg/h. Longitudinal drum boiler. The longitudinal drum boiler was the original type of water-tube boiler that operated on the thermo-siphon principle (see Figure 3.3.5).

Engine efficiency - Wikipedia

Engine efficiency of thermal engines is the relationship between the total energy contained in the fuel, and the amount of energy used to perform useful work.There are two classifications of thermal engines- Internal combustion (gasoline, diesel and gas turbine-Brayton cycle engines) and; External combustion engines (steam piston, steam turbine, and the Stirling cycle engine).
