Book Contents

Thermal Power Pants (Volume III) has been derived from the work of several professors in the nuclear and power industry all of whom have been directly involved with the industry as managers or consultants. The text has been written as educational material and many of the individual chapters have been written as course material for advanced university courses. Also several chapters include material related to plant operation which is prescribed for operator training. Hence it bridges the gap between academic study and practical training. While it is not intended to be comprehensive in all respects it does provide an overview of the topic with sufficient technical depth for a general understanding of power plant technology and a basis for further study in a particular area. When used as a reference in this way each chapter can stand alone and be read independently of the others. Overall it meets the general philosophy of EOLSS in providing a source of knowledge for sustainable development and technological progress for educators and decision makers

Robin Chaplin obtained a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in mechanical engineering from the University of Cape Town. Between these two periods of study he spent two years gaining experience in the operation and maintenance of coal fired power plants in South Africa. He subsequently spent a further year gaining experience on research and prototype nuclear reactors in South Africa and the United Kingdom, and obtained a M.Sc. in nuclear engineering from Imperial College, London University. On returning and taking up a position in the head office of Eskom he spent some twelve years there, initially in project management and then as head of steam turbine specialists. During this period he was involved with the construction of the Ruacana Hydro Power Station in Namibia and Koeberg Nuclear Power Station in South Africa, being responsible for the underground mechanical equipment and civil structures and for the mechanical balance-of-plant equipment at the respective plants. Continuing his interests in power plant modeling and simulation, he obtained a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Queen’s University in Canada. He was subsequently appointed as Chair in Power Plant Engineering at the University of New Brunswick, where he teaches thermodynamics and fluid mechanics and specialized courses in nuclear and power plant engineering in the Department of Chemical Engineering. An important function is involvement in the plant operator and shift supervisor training programs at Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station. This includes the development of material and teaching of courses in both nuclear and non-nuclear aspects of the program
