"This thesis applies to a central power station located in a rapidly growing manufacturing city with a present population of 40,000. The station is connected by high voltage transmission lines with six hydro and steam generating stations located in other cities. These transmission lines are mainly for emergency purposes so that this report considers that the station here studied will carry its full load. The boiler room is the only part of the station considered in this thesis as a previous study showed that there was ample space in the engine room for turbo-generator for years to come"--Introduction, page 1.
