THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE FOR STEAM POWER PLANT SYSTEMS AND
OPERATION--FULLY UPDATEDFor more than 75 years, this book has been
a trusted source of information on steam power plants, including
the design, operation, and maintenance of major systems. "Steam
Plant Operation," Ninth Edition, emphasizes the importance of a
comprehensive and renewable energy sources.Wind, solar, and biomass
power are introduced in the book, and the benefits and challenges
of these renewable resources for the production of reliable,
cost-effective electric power are identified. Even with these new
technologies, approximately 90% of electricity is generated using
steam as the power source, emphasizing its importance now and in
the future. In-depth details on coal-fired plants, gas turbine
cogeneration, nuclear power, and renewable energy sources are
included as are the environmental control systems that they
require. Potential techniques for the reduction of carbon dioxide
emissions from fossil fuel-fired power plants also are
presented.This practical guide provides common power plant
calculations such as plant heat rate, boiler efficiency, pump
performance, combustion processes, and collection efficiency for
plant emissions. Numerous illustrations and clear presentation of
the material will assist those preparing for an operator's license
exam. In addition, engineering students will find a detailed
introduction to steam power plant technology."STEAM PLANT
