Electric Power Research Trends
Electric Power Research Trends
The world is becoming increasingly electrified. For the foreseeable future, coal will continue to be the dominant fuel used for electric power production. The low cost and abundance of coal is one of the primary reasons for this. Electric power transmission, a process in the delivery of electricity to consumers, is the bulk...
Zero Emissions Power Cycles
Zero Emissions Power Cycles

Focusing on fossil-fueled, nonpolluting power generation systems, Zero Emissions Power Cycles presents alternative solutions to the severe emissions problems of power plants. Along with a description of new thermodynamic cycles and the results of computational analyses, this volume provides modern analytical tools and equations...

Renewable Energy: Technology, Economics and Environment
Renewable Energy: Technology, Economics and Environment

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...

Guesstimation: Solving the World's Problems on the Back of a Cocktail Napkin
Guesstimation: Solving the World's Problems on the Back of a Cocktail Napkin

Guesstimation is a book that unlocks the power of approximation--it's popular mathematics rounded to the nearest power of ten! The ability to estimate is an important skill in daily life. More and more leading businesses today use estimation questions in interviews to test applicants' abilities to think on their feet....

The Chemistry and Technology of Coal, Third Edition (Chemical Industries)
The Chemistry and Technology of Coal, Third Edition (Chemical Industries)

The demand for coal use (for electricity generation) and coal products, particularly liquid fuels and chemical feedstocks, is increasing throughout the world. Traditional markets such as North America and Europe are experiencing a steady increase in demand whereas emerging Asian markets, such as India and China, are witnessing a rapid surge...

World on the Edge: How to Prevent Environmental and Economic Collapse
World on the Edge: How to Prevent Environmental and Economic Collapse

When I meet old friends and they ask, "How are you?" I often reply, "I'm fine; it's the world I am worried about." "Aren't we all" is the common response. Most people have a rather vague sense of concern about the future, but some worry about specific threats such as climate change or population...

Power Plays: Energy Options in the Age of Peak Oil
Power Plays: Energy Options in the Age of Peak Oil

Many people wonder: Are we really running out of oil, or is it all a ruse to drive prices up? Is nuclear power safe and economical? Is solar energy really the key to providing plenty of carbon-free energy? Do we have enough natural gas or coal to make any loss of oil production irrelevant?

In Power Plays: Energy Options in the...

Lean Architecture: for Agile Software Development
Lean Architecture: for Agile Software Development

Harry Grinnell, who was co-author James Coplien’s grandfather, was a life-long postal worker, but many of his life’s accomplishments can be found in his avocations. His father was an alcoholic and his mother a long-suffering religious woman. Grandpa Harry dropped out of school after eighth year to take a job in a coal yard...

Hitting the Wall: A Vision of a Secure Energy Future (Synthesis Lectures on Energy and the Environment: Technology, Science, and Society)
Hitting the Wall: A Vision of a Secure Energy Future (Synthesis Lectures on Energy and the Environment: Technology, Science, and Society)
Hitting the Wall examines the combination of two intractable energy problems of our age: the peaking of global oil production and the overloading of the atmosphere with greenhouse gases. Both emerge from the overconsumption of fossil fuels and solving one problem helps solve the other. The misinformation campaign about climate change is discussed...
