Modern Power Station Practice, Volume 3: Mechanical (Turbines and Auxiliary Equipment) focuses on the development of turbines and auxiliary equipment used in power stations in Great Britain. Topics covered include thermodynamics and steam turbine theory; turbine auxiliary systems such as lubrication systems, feed water heating systems, and the condenser and cooling water plants. Miscellaneous station services, and pipework in power plants are also described. This book is comprised of five chapters and begins with an overview of thermodynamics and steam turbine theory, paying particular attention to types of turbines, construction of steam turbine cylinders and rotors, and gas and hydraulic turbines. The following chapters look at turbine auxiliary systems such as glands and sealing systems, lubrication systems, governors and governing gear; feed water heating systems, feed heater arrangement, and regenerative cycle calculations; and design and construction of condensers. The final chapter is devoted to miscellaneous station services and pipework in power plants and discusses water services, compressed air services, heating and ventilation, and miscellaneous cranes and lifting tackle. This volume will be of interest to power station engineers.
