IEEE PUST Student Branch arranged an industrial tour to Rajshahi Katakhali 50MW power plant ( also known as Northern Power Plant) on 29-03-2018 (Thursday).
About Rajshahi Katakhali 50MW power plant:
Northern power plant. It is a peaking 50 MW in Bangladesh. Why it is called peaking. Behind this name there is some reason, we use or start this type of power plant in peak load hour when we need more power at that time we will start this type of power plant.
This is basically diesel engine base power plant. This type of power plant fuel source is diesel and furnishes oil. Diesel is called LFO(low fuel oil) and furnish is called HFO (heavy fuel oil).What is the reason behind two types of oil they used? The reason is it is cost effective and it goes down the rate of the electricity production per unit.
Production capacity of katakhali power plant :
The production capacity of the katakhali power plant is 50 MW. In this plant have 6 diesel engine each of the engine capacity is 8.9 MW. If we are summing of all the generator capacity it will be 52.2 MW.
