Advanced Gas Turbine Cycles: A Brief Review of Power by J. H. Horlock

By J. H. Horlock

Primarily this publication describes the thermodynamics of fuel turbine cycles. the quest for top fuel turbine potency has produced many diversifications at the easy "open circuit" plant, regarding using warmth exchangers, reheating and intercooling, water and steam injection, cogeneration and mixed cycle crops. those are defined totally within the text.

A evaluation of contemporary proposals for a few novel fuel turbine cycles is additionally incorporated. some time past few years paintings has been directed in the direction of constructing gasoline generators which produce much less carbon dioxide, or vegetation from which the CO2 could be disposed of; the consequences of a carbon tax on electrical energy pricing are thought of.

In providing this vast survey of gasoline turbine cycles for strength new release the writer calls on either his educational adventure (at Cambridge and Liverpool Universities, the gasoline Turbine Laboratory at MIT and Penn nation collage) and his business paintings (primarily with Rolls Royce, plc.) The booklet should be crucial examining for ultimate 12 months and masters scholars in mechanical engineering, and for practicing engineers.
