Best Power Plant engineering tutors
I was always not too fond of thermodynamics, and as the power plant is heavily influenced by it, I had a hard time learning it. A tutor at MEB helped me understand it in a way I got interested in this subject. Thanks.

Online tutoring in Power Plant engineering
If you cannot understand some topics on your own, it’s wise to get tutored by an expert. With our interactive online whiteboards and tools like Zoom and Google Meet, you will feel you are sitting beside your tutor. Ask any question that is bothering you, and the tutor will answer. You can use these sessions to learn, clear your doubts, solve your assignment, project, lab, etc. WhatsApp us, and we will set up a trial session with a tutor who is an expert in power plant engineering.
Homework help with Power Plant engineering
A student goes through immense academic stress and is always hard-pressed for time. Sometimes sparing even an hour or two can be difficult. If you are in a similar situation and can not attend live tutoring sessions with a tutor due to lack of time or otherwise, our homework help service is for you.
Homework help makes more sense as not everyone may require real-time interaction with a tutor. Step-by-step solutions are more than enough to understand a concept or problem. If you are among such students, homework help is suitable for you.
How does it work?
If you decide to take our help, send us your questions; we will quote you the fee after consulting with our subject matter experts. Once you pay, the tutor will start working and send the solutions before it is due. No hassles-top grades!
To know the price for your tutoring, project, homework, lab, etc., share it on WhatsApp. We will estimate the cost and give a quotation.
For a rough idea, the online tutoring cost depends on the subject, the tutor, your grade, the number of sessions, etc. It can be anywhere from $15 to $40 per hour.
Homework help cost, however, is not standard because it depends not only on the number of questions but also on the proximity of the deadline and the effort required by the tutor. WhatsApp us your assignment, and we will tell you the fee.
About Power Plant engineering
What is Power Plant engineering?
The technology and engineering of electrical power generation for the community is called power plant engineering.
Importance of Power plants
Electrical power is vital for humans, and we need it for heating/cooling our households, running electronic gadgets, powering machines in factories, and transportation. Without electrical power, all the development work will be stalled, pushing humanity 100 years back.
Types of Power Plants
Depending upon the source of energy, we can divide the thermal power plants into the following types:
Thermal power plants
Here the source of energy comes mainly from fossil fuels which are nonrenewable and unsustainable. We burn the fuel and use the generated heat to make steam. This steam turns steam turbines that rotate the electric generator, creating electricity. To learn how a thermal power plant work, check this video.
Coal Fired: It accounts for 37% of the total power generated. Since electricity was invented, it has been one of the most widely used power generation sources. It is abundant in nature and also relatively cheap.
(Natural) gas fired: Fossil fuels like natural gas, along with coal, are found in abundance. The use of gas-fired power plants started much later than coal, but as it is a very clean fuel abundantly available, its usage rose rapidly. As of 2019, 24% of total power generated comes from natural gas compared to 37% from coal, which is quite comparable.
Nuclear powered: In 2019, 10% of the total power generated in the world came from nuclear power plants. Nuclear power, even though it is an excellent power source, is not promoted much due to the dangers involved. A country producing nuclear or atomic power can also make atomic bombs, ending human existence on earth. As a result, nations are shy of using nuclear energy, and hence a low % of electricity is produced by this source.
Biomass, Diesel, oil fired, etc.: These are some other forms of fuels used in thermal power plants. The usage is low, though.
The movement of flowing water can turn the turbines, and hence the electric generators making electricity. To use the total energy of the flowing water, though, we need to create dams. As per the power and water requirement, we can release the stored water and produce electricity. Even though it is a very clean power source and can run for eternity, constructing and maintaining a hydropower plant is quite costly and impacts the environment. Also, the water supply may not be present for the entire year. Hence, coal/gas power plants are needed to fill the gaps in supply and demand.
As much as 16% of the total power generated came from hydropower plants.
Wind (turbine) power plants
Various areas receive strong winds throughout the year, and we can use these to turn wind turbines, creating electricity. Installation cost is relatively high, though, and also, the supply of wind is usually not very reliable. 5% of total power generated
in 2019 came from it.
Solar power plants
Solar energy will be present as long as humanity survives; hence, efficient usage of solar energy is essential. We use silicon-based photovoltaic cells to convert solar energy into electrical energy. The setup cost is pretty high due to costly solar panels, though. As of 2019, 3% of the total power generated came from solar panels.
Tidal power plants
The gravitational pull of the moon creates high and low tides. We can use this massive amount of potential energy to turn the turbines and generate power. There are several limitations, like environmental impact, high initial setup cost, etc., but if used correctly, it can significantly contribute to our power generation scheme. To learn more about tidal energy, check out this video.
Geothermal power plants
The earth’s heat content is about 10^31 Jules, out of which 44 TW flows to the surface naturally, and approx 30 TW is replenished by radioactive decay. It is enough to meet our present energy demands by two times. However, it is highly diffused, and only about 0.1 W/m^2 is available for use on average. Some areas, though, have naturally occurring high-temperature resources (e.g., hot springs in the Gysers) we can harness easily. such readily available resources are very few.
Below the tectonic plates, however, the temperature gradient is 25-30 degrees C per km at most places in the world. So if we dig deeper, we can use this temperature gradient to boil steam and generate power, and it will require a super heavy investment, though.
Dry steam power stations, flash steam power stations, and binary cycle power stations are some of the technologies used currently in Geothermal power plants.
(The power generation data is from 2019. Source Wikipedia)
Even after increased usage of alternative and renewable energy sources like Hydro, solar, wind, tidal, geothermal, etc., the bulk of electrical power is still produced by thermal power plants. Burning creates CO2, which is terrible for the climate.
Oil and gas companies and those with a vested interest in oil, gas, and coal spread false information about the viability of renewable energy sources. They do so because if the government starts pushing for renewables, their business will be severely impacted. Watch this video for a better understanding of this issue.
