Basics of Boiler and HRSG Design
An excellent primer for power plant professionals who have to wear many hats and need a practical explanation of the design and basic operation of conventional steam generating boilers and HRSGs without having to wade through technical material. Buecker uses anecdotes and humor to liven up what would otherwise be considered a dry subject. No other book explains the fundamentals of boilers and HRSGs without going into technical depths.
