Power Generation Handbook
Selection, Applications, Operation, and Maintenance by Philip Kiameh

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.

Selection considerations, operation, maintenance and economics of co-generation plants and combined cycles as well as emission limits, monitoring and governing systems are also covered thoroughly. Power Generation Handbook: Selection, Applications, Operation, Maintenance is a blueprint to maximizing the efficiency, reliability, and longevity of any power generating plant.

Key Features:

  • 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
