Caption: Coal-fired power station. Diagram showing the main parts of a coal-fired power station. Coal is held in storage until needed, then is pulverised to form a thick dust. This is blown into the boiler where it burns at high temperature. This heats water in pipes and turns it into steam. The steam is fed through successive stages of turbines to extract the maximum energy, turning generators that produce electricity. The water is recondensed then cooled in a cooling tower.
