Power Generation

Generating Electricity is the process of generating electricity from primary energy sources. This process takes place in power plants. Electricity in power plants is generated mainly by electromechanical generators, which are powered by gas or steam turbines, combustion engines or renewable energy sources such as wind or water. Other sources of electricity are solar and geothermal energy. Safe operation of power plants requires stable cooling of lubricating oil/lube oil, bearings, gearboxes, etc. in turbines and engines. In order to ensure cooling and therefore excellent efficiency of electricity generation, the use of heat exchangers with different designs and sizes is a necessity. Heat exchangers help improve thermal and economical management of power plants. Common applications of heat exchangers in the power generation industry include evaporation of fluids, heat dissipation, condensing of fluids, re-cooling of cooling circuits, cooling of lubricating/lube oil, cooling of engine cooling water, etc.
