Principles of Energy Conversion (ISBN10: 007014902X; ISBN13: 9780070149021)
ISBN13: 978-0070149021
ISBN10: 007014902X

Summary: This book acquaints readers interested in power with all aspects of a very broad and constantly changing area of energy conversion. While covering all aspects of energy conversion, the book concentrates on the power area-introducing readers to the important power system terminology. The book stresses energy-conversion, processes and systems that are currently being used to supply energy for the world economy, but does not neglect other important energy-conversion sys
tems. While some of the actual systems are discussed, the book emphasizes the theory of how energy is released so as not to limit the reader to a particular system. Information on recent developments such as combustion of biomass, the emergence of cold fusion, the use of solar salt ponds, reactor accidents at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, are added to this edition. In addition, some of the original topics such as economics, solar energy, and power cycles, are expanded and updated.
