Advances in Power Boilers is the second volume in the JSME Series on Thermal and Nuclear Power Generation. The volume provides the fundamentals of thermal power generation by firstly analysing different fuel options for thermal power generation and then also by tracing the development process of power boilers in about 300 years. The design principles and methodologies as well as the construction, operation and control of power boilers are explained in detail together with practical data making this a valuable guide for post-graduate students, researchers, engineers and regulators developing knowledge and skill of thermal power generation systems.
Combining their wealth of experience and knowledge, the author team presents recent advanced technologies to the reader to enable them to further research and development in various systems, notably combined cycles, USC and A-USC, as well as PFBC and IGCC. The most recent best practices for material development for advanced power system as well as future scope of this important field of technology are clearly presented, and environment, maintenance, regulations and standards are considered throughout. The inclusion of photographs and drawings make this a unique reference for all those working and researching in the thermal engineering fields.
The book is directed to professional engineers, researchers and post-graduate students of thermal engineering in industrial and academic field, as well as plant operators and regulators.
- Develops a deeper understanding of the design, construction, operation and control of power boilers, being a key component of thermal power generation system
- Written by experts from the leaders and pioneers in thermal engineering of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers and draws upon their combined wealth of knowledge and experience
- Includes photographs and drawings of real examples and case studies from Japan and other key regions in the world to provide a deeper learning opportunity.
Researchers and professional engineers in nuclear and thermal energy engineering, Post-graduate students in power generation, especially nuclear and thermal; nuclear engineers, plant operators and regulators
