Power Plant Equipment Operation and Maintenance Guide provides detailed coverage of different types of power plants, including the following: modern cogeneration, combined cycle, * and integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC; plants that burn coal, petroleum coke, Orimulsion, biomass, and municipal waste).

This book provides the reader with a comprehensive understanding of all the equipment used in different type of power plants. It includes detailed coverage of the sizing, selection considerations, calculations, operation, diagnostic testing, troubleshooting, maintenance, and refurbishment of all types of steam turbines, steam generators, boilers, condensers, heat exchangers, gas turbines, compressors, pumps, advanced sealing mechanisms, magnetic bearings, and advanced generators. All the systems and methods used to maximize the efficiency, reliability, and longevity of this equipment are covered in detail. All the preventive and predictive maintenance required for this equipment, including vibration analysis and used oil analyses, are also covered thoroughly.

The book also provides guidelines and rules that must be followed to minimize the failure rate and downtime of all power plant equipment. This book includes an in-depth description of the economics of these power plants and provides information that assists in the selection of the best available power enhancement options such as duct burners, evaporative cooling, inlet-air chilling, absorption chilling, steam and water injection, and peak firing.
