Publisher Description

Combined cycle technology is used to generate power at one of the highest levels of efficiency of conventional power plants. It does this through primary generation from a gas turbine coupled with secondary generation from a steam turbine powered by primary exhaust heat. Generating power at high efficiency thoroughly charts the development and implementation of this technology in power plants and looks to the future of the technology, noting the advantages of the most important technical features - including gas turbines, steam generator, combined heat and power and integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) - with their latest applications.

Reviews key developments in combined cycle technologyUses examples drawn from plants around the worldLooks at how combined cycle technology can evolve to meet future energy needs
