9780080422473: Modern Power Station Practice : Station Operation and Maintenance

The operation and maintenance of large generating units is just as complex as their design and manufacture. Based on the many years' experience gained from the daily operation of the British Electricity Supply System, this work conveys the lessons learned in developing the new techniques and provides a guide on the practical aspects of operating and maintaining large power stations, especially those with large generating units. Areas covered include planning and thermal-efficiency monitoring, the theory of large generator design, aspects of the operation of the generator and its auxiliary circuits, and safety and safe working practices.

Review:

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

14 September 1990 Such an up-to-date and modernised compendium of theoretical knowledge and practical experience will make a very useful addition to the library of power station reference material and its appearance is timely. -- I. C. McRae Chief Executive Eskom S. Africa

Sept 14 1990 The electric industry has gone through some tremendous changes in the past two decades and faces major challenges in the remaining decade of this century. The announcement that practice is to be published therefore, most timely, and BEI is to be congratulated on its efforts and its contribution towards helping to meet these challenges. -- American Electric Power Service Corporation W. S. White Jr.
