Hardbound. Combined power plants offer higher efficiency and lower fuel consumption than conventional plants. This new text, which makes an excellent companion to the author's earlier book, Cogeneration - Combined Heat & Power, outlines the basic thermodynamics and economics of combined power plants and the purpose behind their design. Detailed analyses of the factors involved in the operation of combined power plants are clearly presented. Also covered are the history of the developments of combined power plants, practical schemes and experiences and major developments in the field to bring the text up-to-date. The whole book presents a totally original text, ideal for students and practising engineers alike.

Review:

1993 Horlock has rendered a welcome service to all who are concerned with a scientific and practically useful approach to energy conservation in combined power plants. His book is a readable introductory text to this field. -- S S Penner, Energy, Vol 18

February 1994 The author uses his considerable experience and knowledge to full advantage in being able to explain, from first principles, the basic elements used in analysing the various processes... The methodical presentation of this subject matter should be attractive to both undergraduate and postgraduate students who are studying this field of applied thermodynamics. It is also sufficiently advanced and contains numerous up-to-date references to prove of significant value to practising engineers working in the field of electrical energy power production. -- G. Rice, Power Engineering Journal
