HRSGs for Fast Starting Combined Cycle Plants Book Review:

HSRGs for Fast-Starting Combined Cycle Plants discusses key design specifications, operational issues, plant monitoring, and maintenance techniques for fast start HSRGs as they follow design changes in gas turbines and the operational demands of users, and in a power environment increasingly relying on flexible baseload as a supplement to intermittent renewables. Opening with a description of the combined cycle plant components and operational principles, the work provides a definition and description of fast starting, exploring the reasons for its necessity, and the relationship between it and cycling in the HRSG. It reviews fast start impacts in key design and operating issues, ranging through mechanical integrity, operational control, HSRG component packaging, and effective emissions controls. It describes in detail steps necessary to gauge impacts on fast starts, suggesting solutions to eliminate or minimize the impact for an HRSG with a predictable optimum life, discussing design methodology for fast start HRSGs, instrumentation and control requirements, life consumption analysis, and balance of plant design management. It closes by considering key issues in the operation of fast-starting HRSGs, including operational control, operating protocols and strategy, monitoring programs, and predictive maintenance Outlines key requirements for specifying HRSGs for Fast-Starting Combined Cycle Plants Describes salient features of the design process to understand the impact of fast starts on critical components Explains the importance of proper operation protocol to preclude the possibility of premature failure Evaluates on-line monitoring tools to gauge HRSG critical component life consumption Provides detailed requirements for preparing effective specifications for HRSGs for fast-starting combined cycle plants Reviews design methodologies, analyses and guidelines for designing HRSGs Defines operation control protocols to avoid premature mechanical failures or performance deficiencies

Combined Cycle Driven Efficiency for Next Generation Nuclear Power Plants Book Review:

The second edition of this book includes the most up-to-date details on the advantages of Nuclear Air-Brayton Power Plant Cycles for advanced reactors. It demonstrates significant advantages for typical sodium cooled reactors and describes how these advantages will grow as higher temperature systems (molten salts) are developed. It also describes how a Nuclear Air-Brayton system can be integrated with significant renewable (solar and wind) energy systems to build a low carbon grid. Starting with basic principles of thermodynamics as applied to power plant systems, it moves on to describe several types of Nuclear Air-Brayton systems that can be employed to meet different requirements. It provides estimates of component sizes and performance criteria for Small Modular Reactors (SMR). This book has been revised to include updated tables and significant new results that have become available for intercooled systems in the time since the previous edition published. In this edition also, the steam tables have been updated and Chapters 9 and 10 have been rewritten to keep up with the most up-to- date technology and current research.

Modeling and Simulation of Thermal Power Plants with ThermoSysPro Book Review:

This book explains the modelling and simulation of thermal power plants, and introduces readers to the equations needed to model a wide range of industrial energy processes. Also featuring a wealth of illustrative, real-world examples, it covers all types of power plants, including nuclear, fossil-fuel, solar and biomass. The book is based on the authors’ expertise and experience in the theory of power plant modelling and simulation, developed over many years of service with EDF. In more than forty examples, they demonstrate the component elements involved in a broad range of energy production systems, with detailed test cases for each chemical, thermodynamic and thermo-hydraulic model. Each of the test cases includes the following information: • component description and parameterization data; • modelling hypotheses and simulation results; • fundamental equations and correlations, with their validity domains; • model validation, and in some cases, experimental validation; and • single-phase flow and two-phase flow modelling equations, which cover all water and steam phases. A practical volume that is intended for a broad readership, from students and researchers, to professional engineers, this book offers the ideal handbook for the modelling and simulation of thermal power plants. It is also a valuable aid in understanding the physical and chemical phenomena that govern the operation of power plants and energy processes.
