Primarily this book describes the thermodynamics of gas turbine cycles. The search for high gas turbine efficiency has produced many variations on the simple "open circuit" plant, involving the use of heat exchangers, reheating and intercooling, water and steam injection, cogeneration and combined cycle plants. These are described fully in the text.
A review of recent proposals for a number of novel gas turbine cycles is also included. In the past few years work has been directed towards developing gas turbines which produce less carbon dioxide, or plants from which the CO2 can be disposed of; the implications of a carbon tax on electricity pricing are considered.
In presenting this wide survey of gas turbine cycles for power generation the author calls on both his academic experience (at Cambridge and Liverpool Universities, the Gas Turbine Laboratory at MIT and Penn State University) and his industrial work (primarily with Rolls Royce, plc.) The book will be essential reading for final year and masters students in mechanical engineering, and for practising engineers.
This is the second volume in a major two-part work providing a country-by-country analysis of African oil and gas. Divided into north and central Africa (Volume I) and east, west and southern Africa (Volume II), the book details the oil and gas frameworks and the key concerns in the most significant jurisdictions. Topics addressed include the key terms of the petroleum laws, the types of legal arrangement in place (eg, concession agreement, production sharing contract or service agreement), the fiscal terms, the acquisition of acreage, governing law, dispute resolution mechanisms and governmental control. Volume II on west and southern Africa includes both traditional petroleum producing countries, such as Nigeria and Angola, and more recent areas with significant potential, such South Sudan, Mozambique, Ghana and Tanzania. Covering more than 30 countries in total, this book features contributions from a variety of leading experts in the industry, including from ministries of petroleum, national oil companies, international oil companies, law firms and consultancies. This unique new work provides a wider understanding of oil and gas law, contracts and regulations within the African continent
It's been two hundred years since solar storms ravaged Earth's atmosphere. Humanity has scattered across the system, homesteaders in search of survival.
