Non conventional sources of energy 

The bulk generation of power by thermal, hydel and nuclear plants are called conventional methods for producing electricity. Search for newer avenues for harnessing eco friendly electrical power has already begun to meet the future challenges of meeting growing power demand. Compared to conventional methods, the capacity in terms of MW of each nonconventional plant is rather low, but most of them are eco friendly and self sustainable. Wind power, solar power, MHD generation, fuel cell and power from tidal waves are some of the promising alternative sources of energy for the future. Turbine Generator Steam 3-phase A.C Electric power Condenser Exhausted steam from turbine Water feed Coolant Control rods pump Coolant circulating pump Moderator Reactor Fuel rods Heat Exchanger Figure 2.4: Nuclear power generation.
