The planning and design of new power stations can involve complex interaction between the many engineering disciplines involved as well as environmental, planning, economical, political and social pressures. This volume aims to provide a logical review of the procedures involved in power station development. The engineering aspects are outlined in detail, with examples, showing the basis of the relationships involved together with qnon-engineeringq factors so that the engineer can draw on the information provided for specific projects. The civil engineering and building of power stations are also treated, from the earliest planning and site selection studies, through estimating, finance and quantity surveying, to final landscaping.This diagram will indicate the number and size of transformers, switchgear voltage levels and allocation of main drives to switchboards. On a typical CEGB station this will result in a 3-voltage level system operating at 11 kV, 3.3 kV and 415 V.
