The generated steam has a great pressure, arrives at the turbines so that its expansion moves the blades of the same generating current electrical. Nuclear power station. – Source energetics, the uranium Y where a nuclear reactor acts like boiler. The thermal energy is originated by the fission reactions in nuclear fuel formed by an uranium compound. Geothermal power station. – Facilities that the geothermal energy takes advantage of that is to say, the provided one by the heat the Earth instead of petroleum, coal or another fuel. Mareomotriz power station. – Energy associated to the tides caused by the gravitational attraction of the Sun and mainly of the Moon.
The tides are appraised like a variation of the level of the sea, that happens according to the difference of the coastal topography. Aeolian power station. – Installation where the kinetic energy of the wind can be transformed into mechanical energy of rotation. For it one settles towers in whose part superior they exist rotor with multiple shovels, oriented in the wind direction. The shovels or helices turn around their horizontal axes that act on an electricity generator. Solar power station. – In that the solar radiation takes advantage to produce electrical energy. This process, Solar Power station, are subdivided in two specialties: Photovoltaic power station: Where it is made affect the solar radiations on a surface of a semiconducting crystal, call solar cell, and to produce in direct form the electrical current by photovoltaic effect.
This is the reason of ours ” to 1er. Mini;. Photothermal: The heat of the solar radiation warms up a fluid and produces steam that goes towards the turbine producing soon electrical energy. Salts of energy storage. – Part of a Photothermal Solar Power station, where the molten salt is used to store the heat of the sun transforming it into electrical energy, even in hours of absence of the Sun. This one, lately has spread like technology of salts fundidas” in order to obtain the electrical current.
