Edition 1 Foundations, Design and Advances
By Masood Ebrahimi

Publication Date: 29 Mar 2023

Power Generation Technologies: Foundations, Design and Advances provides a comprehensive introduction to the latest developments in renewable and non-renewable generation technologies considered at micro and large-scale, and for traditional facility scale and modern distributed power generation systems. Each chapter provides a foundation in the topic enriched with practical solved examples, end chapter exercises and technical references. Provided computer codes can be instrumentalized to investigate practical examples at a granular level. In addition to the fundamental and theoretical discussions, operational and maintenance guidelines for power equipment are provided to prepare students for work in power plants.

The work provides new international standards and regulation for power generation as well as content devoted to the thermo-economics of power generation and power plants. It is supported by a solution manual for end-chapter exercises and a slide show presentation of the book for instructors and students.

Key Features

  • Enriched with more than 100 EES computer program codes used to deepen reader understanding and solve examples for parametric and sensitivity analyses
  • Provides a practical and pedagogical focus, thus preparing students to work as power plant engineers (with practical examples and discussions)
  • Includes more than 250 high quality photos, graphs and tables to present core concepts and analyses precisely and encourage visual learning
  • Reviews multi-criteria design methods for modern power plant design and multi-generation cycles used for the production of cooling, heating, power, hydrogen and desalination, along with practical examples
