About: Alabama Power's Plant Miller How Electricity Is Generated 3D Animated Tour
Great to see the generation of reliable electricity 24/7 regardless of the weather.
Nice video, though no mention of toxic heavy metal contamination after combustion. Best we leave the coal in the ground and coal technology in the past.
did the guy just say clean energy?
I am very grateful for this kind of scientific report
A truly amazing CGI job.
I had to look twice to confirm the opening aerial view was not a drone shot.
It's amusing reading comments saying to shut this coal plant down because it's "dirty". Yes all of our ways to produce energy are "dirty" in one way or another. We have created the demand for energy, and people want to shut down the sources we have and complain that we're destroying the Earth. That's true, but you don't see anyone not using electricity or actually attempting to come up with alternate sources that aren't composed of lies and/or breaking Laws of energy conservation. Honestly the most "environmental friendly" thing a human can do for the planet is simply...not exist, but no one wants to do that either, well mostly no one.
I can see those cooling towers from my backyard, about 5 miles away.
Do they use light oil to ignite the coal when putting a coal mill in service to the boiler ???
please,,think small,,,give me power only in my home,,each home....cleaner earth.....
It's better than nuclear power...
When is Japan going to stop burning and destroying the Pacific Ocean, it's all such a nightmare. I hope it's put on a top priority basis some day, it's not going away anytime soon. Truly hope Japan gets the helping hand needed by all nations and we learn our lessons from this wacky science that's now killing all the life on our planet earth today.
And they just implemented a carbon tax in Canada and there are countries still burning coal. What a joke our Canadian government is.
Notice that the video does not show the actual live operation inside the plant, that is because a coal electrical plant is very dirty and hazardous environment. Many jurisdictions within North America are closing and decommissioning coal plants due to cost and environmental issues. The cost of natural gas and superior emissions issues coal doesn't make sense to generate power any more.
Holy shit what a very poor model of HP, IP and LP turbines. Where are the stationary blades? What a scrap!
Thankyou sir awesome video
“Kill coal, Kill coal, KILL MORE COAL!!!!”
Fascinating and educational video, also for me, being a 'non fossil fuel' person.
What i don't understand is why the steam returned from the turbines has to be cooled down to below 100 degrees Celsius before re-entering the boiler - a lot of energy is wasted in the cooling towers and in the river.
Of course the returning steam has to be condensed into water to be pumped back into the boiler. But why do that by cooling it?
Why not do that by pressurize the steam into water, and then lead it back to the boiler?
(higher pressure = higher boiling point)
Isn't there some kind of heat pump, that can do that?
That's the Industrial Revolution, and continuing momentum. Things are always changing and adapting.
All you assholes think it's so bad. It's not our country doing the destroying. It's Russia and China.
thanks for warming up the planet, get solar panels, free electricity problem solved alabama
I have to take a test in my school, I need to know EVERYTHING
in this video.. such as how it function etc.. yeah big oof
