Book Summary of Energy Conversion Systems

Paper Back

Highlighting the physics and engineering aspects of energy conversion systems, this book presents an exhaustive exposition of both conventional and non-conventional conversion systems.

  • Presents a detailed description of nuclear and photo voltaic power.
  • Discusses magneto hydrodynamics, wind and ocean energy, fossil fuel and hydroelectric power.
  • Explains coal gasification, biomass and geothermal energy, thermo-electric converters and fuel cells.
  • Also explains problems of cogeneration and energy storage.
  • Highlights the global energy scenario and the environmental effects of various energy conversion systems.
  • Illustrative examples are provided throughout the book. Review and multiple choice questions and practice problems are provided at the end each chapter.

With its comprehensive coverage and systematic presentation, this is an essential text for electrical engineering students. Practising engineers would also find this book extremely useful as a reference source.

About The Author:

Rakosh Das Begamudre has been actively engaged in research, development, teaching and consultation in electrical machinery, energy conversion and high voltage electrical power engineering in the last 6 decades in India, U.S.A. and Canada. He  holds the B.Sc. degree in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering from the Banaras Hindu University (B.H.U.) and A.I.I.Sc. (Master`s degree) from the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore and the Ph.D. degree from the Lehigh University in Bethlehem (Pennsylvania). His training in large and high voltage testing of transformers and other rotating machines was at the factories of Hitachi Ltd. in Japan. Subsequently he worked as a graduate student in high voltage engineering under the guidance of Professor S. Hayashi. After returning to India, he taught at the Mysore University and was also a faculty member of the Roorkee University and then at the Banaras Hindu University. Then he travelled to U.S.A. and came under the influence of Dean Loyal Vivian Bewley and Professor Archie Miller. Then after 4 years at Lehigh, he came to Canada and worked at the National Research Council for 4 years at Ottawa. Then he taught at the Royal Military College at Kingston, Ontario, Canada and at the Capilano College in Vancouver. Then he became manager of Walden Noxter Laboratories in Lillooet, B.C. Canada. Upon returning to India, he was associated with the Central Power Research Institute, being associated with the high voltage labs.
