Coverage includes:

  • Methods for enhancing the reliability and maintainability of all power plants
  • Economic analysis of modern co-generation and combined-cycle plants
  • Selection of the best emission-reduction method for power plants
  • Preventive and predictive maintenance required for power plants
  • Gas turbine applications in power plants, protective systems, and tests


This text is an excellent, concisely written review of the operation and maintenance of a wide range of power plant equipment, useful for not only power plant engineers but also as a general handbook for mechanical engineers.

The author incorporates an excellent chapter on economics of power plant operation. The text has numerous tables, graphs, and illustrations which greatly assist in the comprehension of the subject matter, and the mathematics is not too abstract or overwhelming.

An excellent book overall.
