Thermal power plants are one of the most important process industries for engineering professionals. Over the past decades, the power sector is facing a number of critical issues; however, the most fundamental challenge is meeting the growing power demand in sustainable and efficient ways. Practicing power plant engineers not only look after operation and maintenance of the plant, but, also look after range of activities including research and development, starting from power generation to environmental aspects of power plants.

East and Southern Europe), India, parts of South America, Southwest U.S./northern Mexico and
Australia. The operating characteristics of STPPs are relatively well matched with the
intermediate and peak electricity load requirements in these regions.
Two types of collectors have been used in STPPs: parabolic trough and central receiver.
Electricity is generated by incorporating the solar collectors with a Rankine cycle power plant or
as an add-on to a natural gas combined cycle (referred to as an ISCCS).
The present science book "Application of Solar Energy" is edited by Professor R. D. Rugescu in the series on Solar Power and consists of 7 chapters that begin with the proof of the high thermal efficiency of the gravitational draught through concentrated solar heating. It continues with novel technologies of producing organic fuels through solar heating, new types of photovoltaic cells, long term use of thermal solar power plants, the efficiency of thermal storage and applications in Niger of the Solar power.
This book covers various topics, from thermal-hydraulic analysis to the safety analysis of nuclear power plant. It does not focus only on current power plant issues. Instead, it aims to address the challenging ideas that can be implemented in and used for the development of future nuclear power plants. This book will take the readers into the world of innovative research and development of future plants. Find your interests inside this book!Steam Generator

The utilisation of renewable energies is not at all new; in the history of mankind
renewable energies have for a long time been the primary possibility of generating
energy. This only changed with industrial revolution when lignite and hard coal
became increasingly more important. Later on, also crude oil gained importance.
Offering the advantages of easy transportation and processing also as a raw
material, crude oil has become one of the prime energy carriers applied today.
Ennore Creek becomes the pollution point in Bay of
Bengal which influences the marine resources and

neighboring areas of the city is viewed as dumping sites
for industrial effluents and disposing domestic waste

Trigeneration. The combination of gas engines with absorption
chillers is an optimal solution for generating air conditioning and/or
refrigeration. The waste heat from the mixture intercooler, the engin
oil, the engine cooling water, and the exhaust gas serves as drive
energy for the chillers. Combining a cogeneration plant unit with an
absorption refrigeration system allows utilization of seasonal excess
heat for cooling.
