Power Plant Technology by R. K. Jain
Book Summary:

Adequate supply of electrical power is the essential requirement of any country to satisfy the basic human needs. The economy of country is directly linked with its capability to generate electrical power. The great increase in use of energy has come at the expense of fossil fuels which are limited. Today there is great need to conserve fossil fuels to attain sustainable development. The phenomenon of global warming and its effect on human life has created tremendous pressure on exploitation of renewable sources of energy.
