    j) What is an electrostatic precipitator?

                                      SECTION-B

Q2. Attempt any five questions.                                                                    5×6=30

      Q2. Draw and explain the flue gas and water steam flow diagrams of a steam power plant.
     Q3. Explain how hydroelectric plants are classified.
     Q4. Show that a mass defect of 1 amu is equivalent to about 931 MeV of energy.
     Q5. Discuss the principle of operation of a closed cycle gas turbine plant. Compare it with open cycle gas turbine plant.
     Q6. Discuss the advantages of combined operation of different plants. Explain with the help of suitable example.

                                     SECTION-C

Q3. Attempt any TWO questions.                              2×10=20
