Brief History on Power The Sun The Sun was a great source of energy since the beginning of time. Coal Burning coal creates fuel for human purposes.
Brief History on Power Natural Gas Burning fuel to create energy to cook and provide heat. Steam Power Can be converted to electrical energy to be used for all types of things. Nuclear Energy Provides a longer duration for burning to create electrical energy.
The Power The source of power for this plant is primarily coal.
The Power Plant The coal is burned at the plant. The steam spins the turbines. The turbines begin to produce energy as they turn. The energy is then sent to the transformer for distribution to the customers.
Dukes power The Noblesville plant produces 300 megawatts of power which is a small portion of the 58,200 megawatts Duke produces for the United States.
Duke energy Duke energy provides Noblesville Indiana with energy. It's steam generated from the hot exhaust of 3 combustion turbines fueled by natural gasses. The plant was once a coal plant but was switched over in 2003. The 3 turbines are joined to a heat recovery steam generator which captures and converts the combustion exhaust heat into energy. Making this power plant more efficient
Sizing Requirements Residential As of 2011, the average household used 11,280 kWh per year 940 kWh per month Telephone poles and wires leading into one's house makes this possible
Sizing Requirements Commercial Thicker wires, transformers, and converters are needed for the demanding commercial use This is shown in the picture of the top of Wal-Mart
