Accident at NTPC plant: India's worst industrial disasters, Bhopal to Korba An explosion ripped a boiler in the state-run power giant NTPC's Unchahar plant in Uttar Pradesh's Rae Bareli
11 The efficiency of the power plant can be calculated by using the formula: EFFICIENCY = (WT - WP ) / QH Where, WP = work done by pump. WT = work done by turbine. QH = heat energy given to the boiler. Any thermal power plant should be able to maintain a high efficiency of the cycle, as it will indicate the fraction of heat being utilized usefully.
The accident is the worst since the 2009 collapse of a power-plant chimney under construction at Bharat Aluminium Co.'s Korba project killing 45 people. The NTPC Management had set up an enquiry to investigate the reasons for the accident on November 1, when a boiler at 500 MW Unit-6 blasted and caused injuries to around 80 people.
