Steam Turbines for Modern Fossil-Fuel Power Plants

File Size: 5.49 Mb

This book is a continuation of my previous two-volume work Large Power Steam Turbines: Design & Operation (PennWell, 1997). Those volumes were conceived as an exposition of steam-turbomachinery fundamentals as they were seen by the end of the 20th century. This new book to a degree rests on its contents, not repeating previous information as far as possible without sacrifice of comprehension. The afore-mentioned work was also supplemented by another book, Wet-Steam Turbines for Nuclear Power Plants; PennWell, 2005. The present book considers the newest approaches of the latest decade in design, operation, and refurbishment of steam turbines for fossil-fuel power plants and is designed to be a final part of this trilogy.
