From Generation to Utilisation
There are several methods that we use to generate electrical power around the world. The most significant of all of these by a long way is Coal, which accounts for over 40% of the world’s electricity production. Natural Gas is the next largest contributor at over 20%. Fossil fuels in total account for just over two-thirds of our global electricity production. Hydroelectric, Nuclear and Renewables account for the remaining third.
The Electrical Power Systems range from TecQuipment, covers the principles of electrical power; generation, transformation, transmission, distribution and protection.
TecQuipment also provide equipment that enables students to understand the principles around the whole power industry, that allows electricity to reach our homes and factories. These areas include the structures that allow the transmission of electricity, the machine theory that supports the workings of a steam turbine or the cooling process needed in a power station.
This is a versatile, compact apparatus for teaching the fundamentals of kinetic wind energy conversion into electrical power. Flexibility is at the core, it has a castor-mounted frame for mobility and functionality and allows students to 3D-print their own blades for advanced experimentation.
The FC300 10 metre flume is 300 mm wide and 10 m long for student study and advanced research into a wide range of fluid flow topics. A huge range of ancillaries is available to extend learning potential and offers the opportunity for innovative experimentation.
