Modern Power Station Practice : Control and Instrumentation

9780080422466: Modern Power Station Practice : Control and Instrumentation

The advances in control and instrumentation have played one of the most important roles towards the improvements in power plant operation and performance. The range of applications has resulted in maximising thermal efficiency; optimising flow, level, pressure and temperature regulation; on-line monitoring and control of water and steam purity; and the prevention of excursions in plant metal temperatures which if not controlled would lead to reduced life of components. This volume comprehensively covers all aspects of control and instrumentation and its application. It deals in detail with the selection, evaluation, specification and standards for systems. An introduction to control theory is included together with the use of pneumatic, electrical and electronic equipment for systems throughout the power plant. Also covered are automation, protection, interlocks, analysis, control room design, system integrity, on-line computer control, and control and instrumentation supplies.

14 Sept 1990 A substantial degree of technological change has occurred in electricity generation since the last edition of Modern Power Station Practice in 1971. My organisation has been involved in that change, adopting many of the sound engineering practices of the CEGB which are so clearly and concisely captured in this robust and authorative third edition. I am particularly pleased to see the publication's comprehensiveness further enhanced by the addition of a practical guide to power station commissioning. This third edition truly reflects its solid pedigree in carrying forth a tradition of learning and practice for the engineering gernerations of today and tomorrow. I welcome and actively support this excellent publication. -- B. Flanagan Electricity Commission of New South Wales

14 Sept 1990 I feel strongly that this new edition of Modern Power Station Practice (MPSP) represents a significant improvement over the previous edition in terms of clarity of presentation of complex topics in a readable style, well illustrated application techniques, recent experiences and up to date technological information. Such a compendium of detailed work in the field of Power Station Practice and Technology is evidently the outcome of the cooperative efforts of authors and editors. I believe that their contributors will enhance the capabilities of practising engineers and technicians. This edition will certainly provide the users with a very useful guide on this subject, which is presented in a very exhaustive yet interesting and perspicuous manner. I have no doubt in my mind that the users of this edition of Modern Power Station Practice, e.g. Power Utilities, Consulting Engineers, Power Plant Practitioners and Librarians all over the world, will derive tremendous benefit and pleasure from the MPSP volumes and would find it a useful and very informative reference handbook. -- Government of Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity
