Developments in Power Station Design

Nature volume 114, page 8 (05 July 1924) | Download Citation



THIS book will be found useful and interesting by every one connected with the design of electrical power-houses or associated with the installation and operation of steam and electrical plant. The author looks forward to the time when every factory will be driven electrically and power production will be confined to very large power stations. Before this happens, however, it is essential that every manufacturer who generates power for his private use should cut down his consumption of fuel to a minimum. This is highly desirable, not only to reduce his working expenses but also to prevent waste of the nation's coal resources.
