This equipment is designed as a miniature modern day power plant for educational purpose.
A pump supplies water from a feed tank to a small gas fired boiler. The saturated steam can be superheated by an electric superheater (optional). The steam is throttled to single stage turbine. Exhaust from the turbine is condensed in a water cooled condenser. Condensate is collected in a graduated beaker and returned to feed water tank by a pump. A small DC generator is connected to the turbine by a belt, and electrical load is applied. A mechanical dynamometer is provided for measurement of turbine mechanical output. The unit requires outside water supply.
Instruments are provided for monitoring and controlling of plant operation and performance as well as for safety. The unit is on a steel frame with adjustable footings.
Instruction manual is also included.

|Part No.||Part Name|
|TH 100-021||Digital flue gas analyzer for O2 and CO content.|
|TH 101-031||Pressure digital display.|
|TH 120-005EBA||Mini Electric Boiler instead of LPG boiler. By using electric boiler the boiler and overall
plant efficiency experiments are excluded.
In this case LPG tank with pressure regulator and gas rotameter are not required.
|TH 120-010A||Electric feed pump|
Condenser cooling unit
The unit is to cool condenser cooling water and make this equipment to be self-contained instead of using outside water supply. It is completed with transfer pump and fan.
|TH 120-032||Fuel weight totalizer instead of flow meters|
|TH 120-035||Cooling water flow sensor|
|TH 120-037||Condensate weight totalizer instead of graduated beaker|
|TH 130-020||Electric Super heater|
Sensors with computer interface unit for key data acquisition instead of analog data measuring instruments.
