Mohammad Rasul obtained his PhD in the area of Energy and Thermodynamics from The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia, in 1996. He received his Master of Engineering in Energy Technology from Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand, in 1990. His first degree is in Mechanical Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Bangladesh, completed in 1987. Currently, he is an Associate Professor in Mechanical Engineering, School of Engineering and Technology, Central Queensland University, Australia. He is specialised and experienced in research, teaching and consultancy in the areas of energy (industrial, building and renewable energy) and thermodynamics (energy intensive process industries). He has published over 240 research articles both in reputed journals and conferences including 7 book chapters. He has edited two books and has supervised a dozen of research higher degree (RHD) students (PhDs and Masters) to completion and attracted about $3 millions research funding. He is recognised in professional communities which he has demonstrated through creating significant impact and the large number of citations of his research by the relevant professionals, both nationally and internationally. He has also made significant contributions in engineering education research and scholarships. He has published several conference papers and book chapters in the area of project based learning and innovative teaching practices, and have edited a book on Developments in Engineering Education Standards: Advanced Curriculum Innovation. His contributions to the profession and national and international communities have been demonstrated through his varied roles and activities, such as membership of national and international technical, scientific and advisory committees, membership of different professional organizations (such as Engineers Australia) and various organising committees.

Thermal power plants are one of the most important process industries for engineering professionals. Over the past few decades, the power sector has been facing a number of critical issues. However, the most fundamental challenge is meeting the growing power demand in sustainable and efficient ways. Practicing power plant engineers not only look after operation and maintenance of the plant, but also look after a range of activities, including research and development, starting from power generation, to environmental assessment of power plants. The book Thermal Power Plants covers features, operational issues, advantages, and limitations of power plants, as well as benefits of renewable power generation. It also introduces thermal performance analysis, fuel combustion issues, performance monitoring and modelling, plants health monitoring, including component fault diagnosis and prognosis, functional analysis, economics of plant operation and maintenance, and environmental aspects. This book addresses several issues related to both coal fired and gas turbine power plants. The book is suitable for both undergraduate and research for higher degree students, and of course, for practicing power plant engineers.
