"The chapters on combined cycles and cogeneration should be very useful for engineering students interested in power generation. These technologies will be very important in the near future as industrial nations work to make fossil fuel systems more environmentally acceptable, while also working to develop renewable and sustainable energy systems."
––Geoffrey Cobourn, University of Louisville, Kentucky, USA
"A good, comprehensive overview of the field, especially for students with a mechanical engineering background. Appropriate for seniors and first-year graduate students."
––Pritpal Singh, Villanova University, Pennsylvania, USA
"…Provides insight into a key area needed for the future development and implementation of intermittent renewable sources such as solar and wind energy. …I would certainly use this text as a reference…"
––Charles Knisely, Professor and Chair, Mech. Eng. Dept., Bucknell University, Lewisburg, Pennsylvania
