Thermal Power Plant Design and Operation by Dipak K. Sarkar.
This book on Thermal Power Plant Design and Operation deals with various aspects of a thermal power plant starting from fundamentals leading in depth to technical treatment, providing a new dimension to the subject, with focus on operating practices and troubleshooting, as well as technology and design.
Certain chapters also deal with numerical problems along with some worked out examples.
The book is so developed as to be used as a core text by Mechanical/Power Engineering students at the undergraduate level and as a special paper on Heat & Work in the Postgraduate level- Diploma engineering students – reference book in Power Plant Training Institutes and in Graduate Engineers Training Programme on power plants.
Its author has a 40-long association with thermal power plants in design as well as field engineering, sharing his experience with professional engineers under various training capacities, such as training programs for graduate engineers and operating personnel.
➥Chapter 1 deals with treatment on fundamentals of thermodynamics, and comprises vapour cycles, their evolution, meritsdemerits and their applications.
➥Chapter 2 discusses on steam generator covers boiling, circulation, classication, design of heat transfer areas. The intricacies of supercritical boiler are addressed separately.
➥Fuels and combustion are covered in Chapter 3 elaborating sources, availability, characteristics of fuel, combustion calculation, and design aspects of fuel handling.
➥is discussed separately in Chapter 4 in view of large global coal reserves and its acceptance as major pow
➥Chapter 5 covers uidized bed boiler that can burn lower grade of coal and other low grade combustible material for the generation of steam.
➥Chapter 6 deals with introduction, type, governing and speed control, losses, performance of steam turbine.
➥Chapter 7 covers introduction, combustion system, and performance of gas turbine.
➥Chapter 8 deals with diesel power plant. Its design, equipment, and associated systems are addressed in this chapter.
➥Description and purpose of these systems of a steam power plant are covered in Chapter 9.
➥Chapter 10 covers automatic control of key parameters of steam generator, steam turbine, and regenerative system.
➥Chapter 11 is developed to address interlock & protection system of steam generator, steam turbine, gas turbine, diesel engine, and generator (alternator).
➥While Chapter 12 covers start-up and shut down of steam generator, steam turbine, gas turbine, and diesel engine; their abnormal operating conditions are discussed in Chapter 13.
➥Air pollution control is addressed in Chapter 14.
➥Chapter 15 presents purpose, benets, and a list of commonly used codes and standards for design and operation of thermal power plants.
