The fifth edition of this comprehensive, best-selling reference provides the fundamental information you'll need to understand both the operation and proper application of all types of gas turbines. The full spectrum of gas turbine hardware, as well as typical application scenarios, are fully explored, along with operating parameters, controls, inlet treatments, inspection, troubleshooting, and more. The completely updated fifth edition introduces expanded coverage of waste heat recovery including how this technology is applied, and a detailed discussion of both its advantages and challenges to its use with gas turbines. Microturbines are fully covered, along with critical elements of centrifugal and axial compressors. Also treated are gas turbine acoustics and nose control, as well as an expanded section on use of inlet cooling for power augmentation and NOx control. Special emphasis has been placed on strategies that can help you avoid problems before they occur, also provided are many helpful tips that will enable diagnosis of problems in their early stages and analysis of failures to prevent their recurrence. Also treated are the effects of the external environment on gas turbine operations and life, as well as the impact of the gas turbine on its surrounding environment. Engineering thermodynamics and heat transfer, mechanical drive applications, and power generation applications are fully examined.
