Publisher Comments:

HERE'S ALL THE "WHAT TO DO" AND "HOW TO DO IT" STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTION YOU'LL EVER NEED TO TACKLE EVEN THE TOUGHEST SELECTION, OPERATION, AND MAINTENANCE TASKS RELATED TO POWER GENERATION.

Written by hands-on industry expert, Power Generation Handbook provides the reader with a full understanding of all the components, calculations, and subsystems of the various types of gas turbines, steam power, co-generation, and combined cycle plants. The author also thoroughly examines other essential topics such as emission limits, monitoring, governing systems, as well as the economics of power generation.

All major component of power generation systems such as compressors, gas and steam turbines, heat recovery steam generators, condensers, lubricating systems, transformers, and generators are discussed in full detail. Youll also find:

* Coverage of the latest in instrumentation and control systems for power generating equipment

* Operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting methods

* Tips on monitoring, controlling, and reducing emissions from power plants

* Calculations for gas turbine, steam power plant, co-generation, and combined cycles

Power Generation Handbook is truly a blueprint to maximizing the efficiency, reliability, and longevity of any power generating plant.

Synopsis:

We’ve all lived through long hot summers with power shortages, brownouts, and blackouts. But at last, all the what-to-do and how-to-do it information you’ll need to handle a full range of operation and maintenance tasks at your fingertips. Written by a power industry expert, Power Generation Handbook: Selection, Applications, Operation, Maintenance helps you to gain a thorough understanding of all components, calculations, and subsystems of the various types of gas turbines, steam power plants, co-generation, and combined cycle plants.

Divided into five sections, Power Generation Handbook: Selection, Applications, Operation, Maintenance provides a thorough understanding of co-generation and combined cycle plants. Each of the components such as compressors, gas and steam turbines, heat recovery steam generators, condensers, lubricating systems, transformers, and generators are covered in detail. The selection considerations, operation, maintenance and economics of co-generation plants and combined cycles as well as emission limits, monitoring and governing systems will also be covered thoroughly.

This all-in-one resource gives you step-by-step guidance on how to maximize the efficiency, reliability and longevity of your power generation plant.
