This second edition to a popular first provides a comprehensive, fully updated treatment of advanced conventional power generation and cogeneration plants, as well as alternative energy technologies. Organized into two parts: Conventional Power Generation Technology and Renewable and Emerging Clean Energy Systems, the book covers the fundamentals, analysis, design, and practical aspects of advanced energy systems, thus supplying a strong theoretical background for highly efficient energy conversion. Containing over 50 solved examples, plus problem sets, full figures, appendices, references, and property data, this practical guide to modern energy technologies serves energy engineering students and professionals alike in design calculations of energy systems.

Key Features:-

  • Large-scale solar thermal electric and photovoltaic (PV) plants
  • Advanced supercritical and ultra-supercritical steam power generation technologies
  • Advanced coal- and gas-fired power plants (PP) with high conversion efficiency and low environmental
  • Hybrid/integrated (i.e., fossil fuel + REN) power generation technologies, such as integrated solar
  • Clean energy technologies, including "clean coal," H2 and fuel cell, plus integrated power and cogen
  • Emerging trends, including magnetohydrodynamic (MHD)-generator and controlled thermonuclear fusion r
