Steam Turbines for Modern Fossil-Fuel Power Plants 1st Edition by Alexander S. Leyzerovich

Preface: 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. 

Presenting the newest approaches to the design and operation of steam turbines, this book also explores modern techniques for refurbishment of aging units. It covers recent engineering breakthroughs and new approaches to transient operating conditions, as well as improved information support for operational personnel. An authoritative guide for power plant engineers, operators, owners and designers on all of these crucial developments, this book fully describes and evaluates the most important new design and operational improvement opportunities for the full spectrum of today’s steam turbines – from the newest and most advanced to the more common existing systems.
