Steam power plant had been commonly used as an alternative to produce electric power. Steam is the most common working fluid used in vapor power cycles because of its desirable characteristics, such as low cost, availability and high enthalpy of vaporization. Since new Mini Steam Power Plant had been installed in Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) Power Generation Lab, the objective of this project is to carry out further research to investigate the performance and emissions characteristics of the plant. A test guide lines need to be prepared and tested properly before this steam power plant system could be used as part of the Mechanical Engineering (ME) Thermodynamics course. But due to problem occurred to the equipment, the objective of the project had changed to study the experiments that can be conducted using the equipment. The scope of study will be covered the literature review on boiler terminology and principles, boiler from termodynamics point of view and all the calculations involved in the experiments. The results obtained based from the study and research carry out through out the semester will be discussed in results and discussion section. The result will show the experiments calculations and review based from data available. Basically, there are 3 experiments taking under consideration that are steam flow measuring system, separating and throttling calorimeter and additional boiler instrumentation. Base from the results obtained, the conclusion had been made and the recommendations from the author are also included to end up this report.
