Low Temperatures and Electric Power covers the proceeding of the symposium entitled ""Cryogenics in Fuel and Power Technology"" which was held in March 24-28, 1969 in London, United Kingdom. Said symposium deals with the improvement of systems for electric power and liquid natural gas delivery.
The book takes on the problems of the electric power industry, large-scale refrigeration, and cryogenics, and gives different proposals for superconduction, cooling of systems, transfer of liquid natural gas, heat exchange, and energy storage.
The text is recommended for electrical engineers and scientists, especially those who work for the government and aim to improve national power systems and delivery of liquid natural gas.
