What is a power plant or a power station? How is electricity made? Have you always wondered where our household electricity comes from? Or are you just fascinated by Thermodynamics and Rankine cycles?
MESA is pleased to announce that in the lead up to our site visit to AGL Loy Yang Power Station on the 7th of October, we shall be honoured to first have Mr. John Kienhuis from AGL deliver a guest lecture about Loy Yang.
Topics to be addressed include the:
Open cut brown coal mine (civil and mining engineering)
Coal plant and components (pump, boiler, turbines, condenser, feedwater heaters, generator and cooling towers) (chemical, mechanical and electrical engineering)
Rankine cycle thermodynamics, process control system, optimisation of turbine steam bleed-off ratios, and plant energy efficiency (chemical, mechanical, electrical and environmental engineering)
Labyrinth and sealing steam in the turbines (mechanical engineering)
Minimising heat losses and de-bottlenecking (chemical engineering)
Please arrive by 5:45 pm for a 6:00 pm start.
Venue: PAR-Elec. Engineering-106 (Brown Theatre) at The University of Melbourne.
