The electricity generation and distribution industry has undergone far-reaching development during the last 2O years and the information needs of its policy makers, managers and power engineers are no longer served by any one publication. With this in mind, British Electricity International and Pergamon Press are pleased to present a completely revised and enlarged 3rd Edition of "Modern Power Station Practice" incorporating "Modern Power System Practice". All volumes are devoted to specific subject areas, and have been written by authors who are recognized authorities in their speciality fields. Since the pubiication of the previous edition in 1971, much experience has been gained by the CEGB through the commissioning of its large modern power stations; in addition, the wider issues of power transmission and system operation had not been previously addressed. The scope of this new edition has therefore been considerably enhanced by three additional volumes: Station Commissioning, EHV Transmission and System Operation. A completely up-to-date treatment of theoretical and practical aspects is complemented by thousands of illustrations: flow diagrams, colour and black-and-white plates, and detailed cut-away drawings. The coverage throughout is comprehensive and clear, ensuring that engineers and technicians will gain maximum benefit from the wealth of information provided.

14 Sept 1990 A substantial degree of technological change has occurred in electricity generation since the last edition of Modern Power Station Practice in 1971. My organisation has been involved in that change, adopting many of the sound engineering practices of the CEGB which are so clearly and concisely captured in this robust and authorative third edition. I am particularly pleased to see the publication's comprehensiveness further enhanced by the addition of a practical guide to power station commissioning. This third edition truly reflects its solid pedigree in carrying forth a tradition of learning and practice for the engineering gernerations of today and tomorrow. I welcome and actively support this excellent publication. -- B. Flanagan Electricity Commission of New South Wales
14 Sept 1990 I feel strongly that this new edition of Modern Power Station Practice (MPSP) represents a significant improvement over the previous edition in terms of clarity of presentation of complex topics in a readable style, well illustrated application techniques, recent experiences and up to date technological information. Such a compendium of detailed work in the field of Power Station Practice and Technology is evidently the outcome of the cooperative efforts of authors and editors. I believe that their contributors will enhance the capabilities of practising engineers and technicians. This edition will certainly provide the users with a very useful guide on this subject, which is presented in a very exhaustive yet interesting and perspicuous manner. I have no doubt in my mind that the users of this edition of Modern Power Station Practice, e.g. Power Utilities, Consulting Engineers, Power Plant Practitioners and Librarians all over the world, will derive tremendous benefit and pleasure from the MPSP volumes and would find it a useful and very informative reference handbook. -- Government of Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity
