Power Plant Engineering is meant for Mechanical Engineering students. All the modes of power generation, i.e., from coal, gas along with jet propulsion, oil, nuclear, hydropower, wind, solar, biomass, tidal power, geothermal, OTEC (ocean thermal energy conversion) etc., have been studied in detail. International and Indian trends in transmission and distribution, economics of power generation, protection of electrical controls add to the quality of the book. Effect of power plants on the environment has been dealt with in detail. Content of each type of power generation also provides practical aspects like manufacturing of critical power plant components, inspection procedures and standards, criteria for improvement in the performance of the power plant, etc. This empowers the students with practical knowledge. Every chapter provides the progress in technological development of each type of power generation that has taken place around the world as well as its status in India. This book has about 700 figures and 125 tables to make the subject more understandable along with the theory to the students and practising engineers.
