An exploration of how advances in computing technology and current areas of research can be combined to extend the capabilities and economics of modern power plants. Significant changes in power generation have impacted on power plant operations while affording engineers the opportunity to introduce monitoring and plant wide control schemes which were previously unfeasible. Damien Flynn has brought together contributors from academic centres of excellence to engineers working in the field to illustrate how the various methodologies can be applied to power plant operation.
Damian Flynn is a lecturer in power engineering in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at The Queen's University of Belfast. A Chartered Engineer and member of the IET, his research interests lie in power plant advanced monitoring and control, power system stability and wind power integration.
