Preface The author has had a long association with the machines described in this book. The book is the result of this experience and the overwhelming help and support extended to him by his colleagues, friends and business associates over the last twelve years. The purpose of this book is to share the experience of the author with those in the field. It is an attempt to make these subjects simple and interesting. The book should provide an easy approach to answer the problems an engineer or engineering student may face when handling these machines. The author is sure that the readers will find ample opportunity to learn from his experience and apply this information to their field of activities. The book aims to provide a bridge between the concept and the application. With this book by his or her side, an engineer should be able to apply better, design better and select better equipment for system needs and ambient conditions. It should prove to be a handy reference to all those in the field of design and application, protection and testing, production, project engineering, project implementation or maintenance, in addition to the sales and purchase of these products. Engineers have done an incredible job by inventing new technologies and bringing them, over the years to their present level. Research and development work by a dedicated few scientists and engineers has been an untiring process which has provided us with yet more advanced forms of technology. The credit for this book goes to these engineers and scientists throughout the world. The author is not an inventor, nor has he done anything new in these fields. He has only attempted to bring together such advances in a particular field in one book for their better application. The author’s contribution can be regarded as an appropriate selection and application of the available technology and products for their optimum utilization. All relevant aspects of a machine, including its design, have been discussed but greater emphasis is laid on selection and application. Since this is a reference book the basic theory is assumed to be known to a student or a practising engineer handling such machines and/or technologies. In the academic world the derivation of a formula from fundamentals is regarded as most important. In practice, this formula matters more rather than its origin. But for those who wish to know more of the reasoning and the background, care is taken that such subjects are also covered. The author hopes that readers will be satisfied to have most of their queries answered. The book has been written so that it should refresh and awaken the engineer within a reader. The author is certain that this is what readers will feel as they progress through this book. A cursory reading will bring them abreast of the subject and enable them to tackle problems with ease and simplicity. The author’s efforts will be defeated if this book falls short of this aim. The endeavour has been to provide as much information as possible on the application of available technology and products. It should help application engineers to select and design a more suitable machine or power system for their needs. As mentioned above, this text will not cover the full engineering derivations, yet all fundamentals have been provided that are considered relevant to engineer any machine or system covered in this book. To augment the information, ‘further reading’ has also been provided to support the text and to answer queries that may arise on a particular subject. For detailed engineering, the manufacturers are still the best guide. Detailing and engineering must be left to them. In this book, the author has tried to make the subject comprehensive yet concise and easy to understand so that, one can easily refer to it at any time. The references drawn are brief, but pertinent, and adequate to satisfy a query. This book may prove to be a boon to young engineers entering the field. With it they can compare the theory of their studies with application in the field. Whereas all aspects that were thought necessary have been considered, it is possible that some have been omitted. The author would be grateful to receive suggestions from readers for any additions, deletions or omissions to make this book even more useful and up to date. K.C. Agrawal
