Example text

This steam generator has three major systems: • Fuel system. Fuel is mixed with air and injected into the furnace through burners. The burners are equipped with nozzles, which are supplied by preheated air and carefully designed to assure the optimum air-fuel mix. The fuel mix is ignited by oil or gas torches. The furnace temperature is around 3000°F. • Air-flue gas system. Ambient air is driven by the forced-draft fan through the air preheater, which is heated by the high-temperature (600°F) flue gases.

The gases absorbed in the water may cause corrosion and increase condenser pressure, adversely affecting efficiency. 37 Types of nuclear power plants: (a) pressurized water reactor; (b) boilingwater reactor. (From [7]. ) while deaerators in modern plants are usually integrated in the condenser, where injected steam jets produce a pressure drop and remove absorbed gases. 2 Nuclear Power Plants More than 500 nuclear power plants currently operate around the world [7]. Close to 300 operate pressurized water reactors (PWRs), more than 100 are built with boiling-water reactors (BWRs), about 50 use gas-cooled reactors, and the rest are heavy-water reactors.

Note that the curve follows two different paths, depending on whether the magnetizing force H is increasing or decreasing. This is called a hysteresis curve. It is caused by the fact that the magnetic particles in the core need to be rotated and realigned each time the polarity of the magnetizing force changes. This is why the magnetic force must be reversed to reduce the flux density to zero. As the magnetizing force H increases, the flux density increases up to a point, and then the curve flattens out.
