PREFACE


This book is planned to serve as a text book for courses in Energy Conversion and Power Plant Engineering taught to students of Engineering degree. The book is prepared mainly for the use of Mechanical Engineering students, but it will be useful as a text book for students of Electrical Engineering also.

 The book is the outgrowth of the lecture notes used in a course of energy conversion and power plant engineering over several years. It contains sufficient material for a one semester course which may be presented at undergraduate level.

Throughout the text, attempt has been made to present the topic matter in a simple and clear way. Numerous solved examples are given to illustrate the equations explained in the text.

The book is organized into 7 chapters.  Chapter 1 deals with a fundamental of fuels and combustions, such as types of fuel, fuel characteristics, complete and incomplete combustion of fuels. Chapter 2 deals with principle theory of steam boilers and condensers. Basic theory of steam turbine concerned with types, power, efficiency, velocity diagrams are discussed in chapter 3.  The book is then proceeds in chapter 4, 5 and 6 to cover fossil-fired power plants cycles: Rankine cycle, Brayton cycle and combined cycle. Additional examples in steam and gas turbines cycles with neat sketches will be highlight the applications of steam and gas power plants and combined cycles. Finally chapter 7 discusses the fundamentals of photovoltaic energy conversion. This chapter is focused to give good idea on the applications of PV system highlighted by practical examples for load calculation and PV and storage battery selections.

 The author has drawn heavily from the existing literature on the subjects, for which they gratefully acknowledge.

The author is indebted to the staff of Mechanical Engineering Department - Faculty of Engineering – Aden University for their helpful and encouragement.
