About the book

Description

Advances in Steam Turbines for Modern Power Plants, second edition, provides a fully revised and updated comprehensive review of steam turbine design, optimization, analysis and measurement. Editor Tadashi Tanuma and his team of expert contributors from around the globe have updated each chapter to reflect the latest research and experiences in the field, to help progress thermal power generation to meet sustainability goals. This book presents modern technologies for the design and development of steam turbines that supply affordable, reliable and stable power with much lower CO2 emissions.

With the addition of two new chapters on ‘Steam turbine mechanical design and analysis for high temperature, large and rapid change of temperature conditions’ and ‘Steam valves with low pressure losses’ this edition will support students, researchers and professional engineers in designing and developing their own economical and environmentally concerned thermal power plants.
