Class 10 Physics Sources of Energy Thermal Power Plant

Thermal Power Plant



  • Fossil Fuels such as coal are burnt
  • They are used to heat water to produce steam
  • The steam from these moves turbines
  • The movement of these turbines generate electricity
  • This is called a Thermal Power Plant because the heat energy obtained from burning fossil fuels is used to generate electricity.
  • Thermal power plants are generally found near coal and oil fields.
