Turbines Compressors and Fans (2nd Edition)

File Size: 15.29 Mb

The first edition of this book has been serving students and practising engineers since 1983. Last few decades have seen striking developments in turbine power plants employing combined cycle and solar energy. Therefore, to put the role of turbomachines in the present perspective two new chapters on Combined Cycle Plants (Chap. 5) and Solar Turbine Plants (Chap. 17) have been added.

The basic aim of the book remains the same of dealing with the individual turbomachine and its role in the power plant. In view of this, topics such as optimization of the combined cycle and optics in the solar turbine power plants have not been included.

The errors occurring in the earlier edition have been weeded out. Several solved and unsolved examples and questions have been added to enrich the content. Some sections in the chapters have been modified. Additional references have also been included to enhance the Bibliography.
