Turbomachines: Design and Control is designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering. It covers the design aspects of thermal power plant, jet engines, wind mill, etc. Major area on the design of turbomachines covers basic design of aerodynamic principle, velocity diagram and its applications in the design of radial and axial flow machines, thermodynamic analysis of the turbomachines. A chapter is included in the design of controller for the speed control of turbomachines which includes classical control theory and multivariable control theory. For basic understanding a chapter on units and dimensions and compressible fluid flow is also included.
The author and publishers of this book have used their effort in preparing the book titles "Turbomachies: Design and Control". The effort include the development of basic theories and principles for the effectiveness of the book. The author and publisher make no warranty of any kind expressed in the document contained in the book. The author and publisher shall not be liable in any event for incident or consequential damage in connection with or arising out of the use of the book. This book is intended for the fundamental understanding of the turbomachines subject to the students.
