The fourth edition of the book is richer in contents presenting updated information on the fundamental aspects of various processes related to thermal power plants. The major thrust in the book is given on the hands-on procedure to deal with the normal and emergency situations during plant operation.

Beginning from the fundamentals, the book, explores the vast concepts of boilers, steam turbines and other auxiliary systems. Following a simple text format and easy-to-grasp language, the book explicates various real-life situation-related topics involving operation, commissioning, maintenance, electrical and instrumentation of a power plant.

• The text now incorporates a new chapter on Environmental and Safety Aspects of Thermal Power Plants.

• New sections on Softener, Water Treatment of Supercritical Boiler, Wet Mode and Dry Mode Operation of Supercritical Boiler, Electromatic Pressure Relief Valve, Pressure Reducing and Desuperheating (PRDS) System, Orsat Apparatus, and Safety Interlocks and Auto Control Logics in Boiler have been added in related chapters.

• Several sections have been updated to provide the reader with the latest information.

• A new appendix on Important Information on Power Generation has been incorporated into the text.

Dealing with all the latest coverage, the book is written to address the requirements of the undergraduate students of power plant engineering. Besides this, the text would also cater to the needs of those candidates who are preparing for Boiler Operation Engineers (BOE) Examination and the undergraduate/postgraduate students who are pursuing courses in various power training institutes. The book will also be of immense use to the students of postgraduate diploma course in thermal power plant engineering.

• Covers almost all the functional areas of thermal power plants in its systematically arranged topics.
• Incorporates more than 500 self-test questions in chapter-end exercises to test the student’s grasp of the fundamental concepts and BOE Examination preparation.
• Involves numerous well-labelled diagrams throughout the book leading to easy learning.
• Provides several solved numerical problems that generally arise during the functioning of thermal power plants.

Let's Know What's There In The Book

By S. KUMARESAN,  Professor, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Hyderabad. Earlier he served as Professor in the Department of Mathematics at University of Mumbai. He is the recipient of C.L.C. Chandna award for the year 1998 for excellence in mathematical teaching and research. He has been the Programme Director of Mathematics Training and Talent Search Programme for the last several years.

This clear, concise and highly readable text is designed for a first course in linear algebra and is intended for undergraduate courses in mathematics. It focusses throughout on geometric explanations to make the student perceive that linear algebra is nothing but analytic geometry of n dimensions. From the very start, linear algebra is presented as an extension of the theory of simultaneous linear equations and their geometric interpretation is shown to be a recurring theme of the subject. The integration of abstract algebraic concepts with the underlying geometric notions is one of the most distinguishing features of this book — designed to help students in the pursuit of multivariable calculus and differential geometry in subsequent courses. Explanations and concepts are logically presented in a conversational tone and well-constructed writing style so that students at a variety of levels can understand the material and acquire a solid foundation in the basic skills of linear algebra.
