The ``Bible'' Of Powerplant Engineering--Now Fully Expanded for the 21st Century. Over the last decade, powerplant engineering, with its diverse mix of technologies, has undergone dramatic changes. Alternative energy plants and renewable energy resources such as wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, and fuel cell are now set to provide the world's electric power throughout the 21st century. Now over forty experts have extensively revised and updated the Standard Handbook of Powerplant Engineering. Providing powerplant engineers with a full range of information from basic operations to leading-edge technologies, it includes steam generation, turbines and diesels, fuels and fuel handling, pollution control, electrical systems, and instrumentation and control. The first guide to cover the most current technological advances in power generation, this edition has been expanded to include new or heavily revised sections on: Energy resources for power generation; Nuclear plant systems; Hydroelectric power stations; Alternative renewable energy and cogeneration plants; Environmental controls. Packed with hundreds of drawings, diagrams, and photographs, this unique handbook gives engineers and technicians the information they need to keep powerplants operating smoothly and efficiently into the next millennium.About the Author:
