"The author does an excellent job of explaning how the different technologies work, including an objective view of their pros and cons. Provides an excellent description of the major power generation technologies used in the world today...it provides the reader with a solid, basic understanding of how these technologies work and where they are headed. I recommend this well-organized book to anyone wishing to quickly gain a broad understanding of the many power plant technologies of the 21st century." - Chuck Kutscher, National Renewable Energy Laboratory "This book on power generation technologies provides a concise and quick read describing a full range of various power generation technologies available today... The author provides good technical descriptions of the fundamental operating principles of each power generation technique, variants of the basic technique, such as how various types of fuel cells operate, their efficiency, comparison to competing technologies, environmental and cost considerations... Anyone involved in planning and delivering energy, or those interested in energy technologies, will find this book very useful for quickly gaining a basic knowledge about energy-producing technologies and learning about the key cost figures, associated risks, and advantages and limitations of each technology." - IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, August 2006From the Publisher:
This book makes intelligible the wide range of electricity generating technologies available today, as well as some closely allied technologies such as energy storage. The book opens by setting the many power generation technologies in the context of global energy consumption, the development of the electricity generation industry and the economics involved in this sector. A series of chapters are each devoted to assessing the environmental and economic impact of a single technology, including conventional technologies, nuclear and renewable (such as solar, wind and hydropower). The technologies are presented in an easily digestible form. Different power generation technologies have different greenhouse gas emissions and the link between greenhouse gases and global warming is a highly topical environmental and political issue. With developed nations worldwide looking to reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide, it is becoming increasingly important to explore the effectiveness of a mix of energy generation technologies. "Power Generation Technologies" gives a clear, unbiased review and comparison of the different types of power generation technologies available. In the light of the Kyoto protocol and OSPAR updates, "Power Generation Technologies" will provide an invaluable reference text for power generation planners, facility managers, consultants, policy makers and economists, as well as students and lecturers of related Engineering courses. It provides a unique comparison of a wide range of power generation technologies conventional, nuclear and renewable. It describes the workings and environmental impact of each technology, and evaluates the economic viability of each different power generation system.
