How Coal is Processed into Electricity
This storyboard does not have a description.
The coal is placed on the conveyor belt.
It then goes inside the pulveriser where it gets ground into smaller pieces.
These smaller pieces move to the furnace where they get heated up (though the hot air created in the previous processes also helps with heating.
This mixture then goes to the boiler where it heats water and creates steam that escape through the vents above.
The steam then turns/powers an engine called a turbine. The steam also condenses during this process, and turns back to water so the cycle can start again.
The turbine then powers a generator, and after that the energy goes to a substation/transformer which send the electricity to transmission lines.
