Summary

Gas Turbine Combined Cycle Power Plants covers the design, analysis, and optimization of the cleanest and most efficient fossil fuel-fired electric power generation technology at present and in the foreseeable future. The book contains a wealth of first principles-based calculation methods comprising key formulae, charts, rules of thumb, and other tools developed by the author over the course of a quarter of a century spent in power generation industry. Material presented in this book is amenable to application in research and development studies in academia and government/industry laboratories as well as practical, day-to-day problems encountered in the industry (including OEMs, consulting engineers and plant operators). Written in an engaging style, this work presents the state-of-the-art in performance and operability of major plant hardware (advanced class gas turbines and large steam turbines, heat recovery steam generators, condensers and cooling towers) as well as the balance of plant equipment, which should help industry professionals, researchers and students in understanding the theoretical and practical fundamentals of large-scale electric power generation from natural gas. Unlike previously published works in the field, Dr. Gülen's book is exclusively focused on actual power plant systems and actual field and/or rating data providing a comprehensive picture of the gas turbine combined cycle technology from performance and cost perspectives.
