- Electrical power plant : An umbrella term for facilities to generate electric power, usually on an industrial scale.
- Coal-fired power plant : Please do not use this term in your topic list, because there is no single article for it. Please substitute a more precise term. See Coal-fired power plant (disambiguation) for a list of available, more precise, topics. Please add a new usage if needed.
- Coal : a combustible, black rock formed after millions of years of heat and pressure were applied to the decayed remains of plants and organic matter in what were then swamps.
- Combustion : A sequence of exothermic chemical reactions between a fuel and an oxidant accompanied by the production of heat or both heat and light in the form of either a glow or flames.
- Air preheater : A general term to describe any device designed to preheat the combustion air used in a fuel-burning furnace for the purpose of increasing the thermal efficiency of the furnace.
- Condensate polishing : An ion exchange process used to purify the steam condensate produced in high-pressure steam generation facilities such as those in large thermal power plants.
- Deaerator : A device used for the removal of air and other dissolved gases from the feedwater to steam generating boilers.
- Flue gas desulfurization : The technology for removing sulfur dioxide from the flue gases resulting from the combustion of coal or fuel oil in power plant steam generators or other large combustion sources.
- Flue gas stack : A vertical pipe, channel or chimney (also referred to as a smokestack) through which combustion product gases (flue gases) are exhausted to the atmosphere. Includes the draft (draught) effect of hot gases flowing through tall stacks (chimneys).
- Industrial cooling tower : Heat rejection systems used primarily to provide circulating cooling water in large industrial facilities.
- NOx : NOx is a generic term for the mono-nitrogen oxides NO and NO2 (nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide)
- Power (physics) : Rate of producing or consuming energy; SI unit: watt = joule/second.
- Steam : The vapor (or gaseous) phase of water (H2O).
- Steam generator : A device that uses a heat source to boil liquid water and convert it into its vapor phase, referred to as steam.
- Steam turbine : Add brief definition or description
- Surface condenser : A water-cooled shell and tube heat exchanger for condensing the exhaust steam from large steam turbines.
- Water : A chemical compound with one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms (H20). It is often in a liquid form and makes up the bulk of the oceans, lakes, rivers and living organisms.
- Hydroelectric power : converts the energy in falling or flowing water in dams into electricity by directing falling or flowing water through water turbines which spin electrical generators that produce electricity; see the Hydroelectricity article in Wikipedia.
- Integrated gasification combined cycle power plant (also known as IGCC power plant) : Add brief definition or description
- Fluidized bed combustion power plant (also known as FBC plant) : Add brief definition or description
