The second edition of the book proceeds to cover power plants that rely on renewable energy sources, such as geothermal, solar, wind, ocean and tide and wave energy. It terminates with the presentation of various energy storage systems, most of which are still under development and environmental aspects of electric power generation, both fossil and nuclear. All power production plants, invariably, pollute the atmosphere and the resulting imbalance on ecology has bad effect.

Power Plant Engineering is the outcome of the author's teaching the same subject to engineering students for the last 19 years. It discusses all types of power plants in entirety, detailing each one's merits and demerits, their engineering and technical aspects like the equipment required, working of the plant, scientific principles involved, their physical location, environmental hazards involved, and so on. Due emphasis has also been given to the management of waste generated by power plants, e.g. fly ash.
Apart from technical and engineering aspects, it also discusses the economics part of power plants, recent developments in the methods of power generation, and prospects for solar and magnetohydrodynamics power generation. Numerical problems, multiple choice questions and a review exercise is also appended at the end of each chapter.
This book is useful for the students and teachers of electrical and mechanical engineering.

  • The book covers all the conventional and non-conventional power plant engineering including thermal, hydro, nuclear, gas, diesel, wind, solar, geothermal and so on.
  • Has specific chapters on various sources of power, trends in production and economic aspects.
  • New edition includes a new Chapter on Environmental Aspects of Power Generation.
  • Expansion of Updated matter for Chapter 1 and 2 and text is supported with simple and self-explanatory figures.
  • Contains solved examples, review exercises and objective type questions in the chapter.
