The final book of Sanders' three-volume set on turbine steam path, Sanders turns his focus to the details of design consideration for steam turbines. He relays all the information on mechanical design and function needed in evaluating turbine manufacture, maintenance, and operation. This extensive work covers much of the technical material included in Sanders' seminar Turbine Steam Path Engineering. This popular seminar has been developed over several years and presented to turbine engineers worldwide. This book covers key elements involved in the installation of new generation capacity. It gives information on whether to consider combined-cycle as an option to the steam turbine. It includes a discussion on renewable power sources.
