The Electrical Engineering Handbook, Second Edition

In one quantity, this guide offers a whole connection with solution the questions encountered by way of working towards engineers in undefined, govt, or academia. This well-organized e-book is split into 12 significant sections that surround the whole box of electric engineering, together with circuits, sign processing, electronics, electromagnetics, electric results and units, and effort, and the rising traits within the fields of communications, electronic units, desktop engineering, structures, and biomedical engineering.

Instantaneous Power Theory and Applications to Power Conditioning

This ebook provides a deep assessment of assorted energy theories and indicates how the instant energetic and reactive energy concept presents a tremendous easy wisdom for knowing and designing lively filters for strength conditioning. the single booklet of its type, it additionally demonstrates how the instant energetic and reactive strength idea can be utilized for mixed shunt-series filters and in versatile AC Transmission structures (FACTS).

Practical Electrical Network Automation and Communication Systems

Some time past automation of the facility community was once a truly really good zone yet lately because of deregulation and privatization the realm has turn into of an excellent value simply because businesses require additional information and communique to lessen expenditures, decrease group and reduce mistakes to be able to make a revenue.

Variable Speed Generators

Surveying the applied sciences used to meet the world's call for for open, effective, and fresh electrical energy, Variable velocity turbines presents an in-depth exam of variable-speed turbines for either stand-alone and grid-connected purposes. a part of the electrical turbines guide, Two-Volume Set, this paintings bargains authoritative, tightly targeted therapy of the topologies, regular country and transients modeling, functionality, regulate, layout, and checking out of stand-alone and grid-connected turbines working at variable speeds.

Example text

Fossil Fuel Power Plants Steam turbine power plants can use coal, oil, natural gas, or just about any combustible material as the fuel resource. However, each fuel type requires a unique set of accessory equipment to inject fuel into the boiler, control the burning process, vent and exhaust gases, capture unwanted byproducts, and so on. Some fossil fuel power plants can switch fuels. For example, it is common for an oil plant to convert to natural gas when gas is less expensive than oil. Most of the time, it is not practical to convert a coal burning power plant to oil or gas unless it has been designed for conversion.

If excessive vibration is detected, the system involved must be quickly shut down. (Note this is also true of regular steam plants. ) Nuclear power plants seem to be particularly susceptible to vibration problems, especially on the protective relay panels. Excessive vibration can cause inadvertent relay operations, shutting down a system or the complete plant. Microprocessor-based protection relay equipment is basically immune to vibration problems, but there is a perception that the solid-state circuits used in such relays may be damaged by radiation.

Pulverized coal is mixed with air and ignited in the furnace. Combustion by-products include solid residue (ash) that is collected at the bottom of the furnace and gases that include fine ash, NO2, CO, and SO2, which are emitted into the atmosphere through the stack. Depending on local environmental regulations, scrubber and baghouse equipment may be required and installed to collect most of these by-products before they reach the atmosphere. 26 GENERATION Scrubbers are used to collect the undesirable gases to improve the quality of the stack output emissions.
