Generally it is believed that in a power station when there is a
demand for process steam and also demand for heating, most of the
auxiliaries of the plant should be arranged to be driven by steam
rather than using electrical energy for them. This is, however, a
general remark and a correct selection can be made only after a detailed
study is made of all factors involved. The V. P. I. central heating and
power plant works mainly as a heating station, generation of electrical
energy, being a by—product. So this problem is completely different
from the standpoint of a general power station. This station supplies
heating steam to the college through two different pressure lines. One
is the low pressure, and the other is the high pressure line.
