A power plant is an assembly of systems or subsystems to generate electricity, i.e., power with economy and requirements. The power plant itself must be useful economically and environmental friendly to the society. Power Plant Engineering Book by A.K. Raja. The present book is oriented to conventional as well as non-conventional energy generation. While the stress is on energy efficient system regards conventional power systems viz., to increase the system conversion efficiency the supreme goal is to develop, design, and manufacturer the non-conventional power generating systems in coming decades preferably after 2050 AD which are conducive to society as well as having feasible energy conversion efficiency and non-friendly to pollution, keeping in view the pollution act. The subject as a whole can be also stated as modern power plants for power viz electricity generation in the 21st century. The word modern means pertaining to time. At present, due to energy crisis, the first goal is to conserve energy for future while the second step is to develop alternative energy systems including direct energy conversion devices, with the devotion, dedication and determination remembering the phrase, “ Delve and Delve Again till wade into”.

A power plant may be defined as a machine or assembly of equipment that generates and delivers a flow of mechanical or electrical energy. The main equipment for the generation of electric power is the generator. When coupling it to a prime mover runs the generator, the electricity is generated. The type of prime mover determines, the type of power plants.
The major power plants, which are discussed in this book, are,
- Steam power plant Engineering
- Diesel power plant Engineering
- Gas turbine power plant Engineering
- Nuclear power plant
- Hydroelectric power plant
The Steam Power Plant, Diesel Power Plant, Gas Turbine Power Plant and Nuclear Power Plants are called THERMAL POWER PLANT because these convert heat into electric energy.
