First published in 1991, this book is the leading reference on technical and economic factors of combined-cycle applications within the utility and cogeneration markets.
With combined-cycle applications now leading the trend toward merchant plants and the "peaking" power needed in newly deregulated markets around the world, this long-awaited second edition is more important than ever. In it, Kehlhofer -- an internationally recognized authority in the field of new combined-cycle power plants -- and his co-authors widen the scope and detail found in the first edition. Included are tips on system layout, details on controls and automation, and operating instructions. Loaded with case studies, reference tables, and more than 150 figures, this text offers solid advice on system layout, controls and automation, and operating and maintenance instructions. The author provides real-world examples to apply to your own applications.
