Upon successful completion of this course the student will develop the following skills:
- Ability of determining thermodynamic properties of pure substances from analytical relations, diagrams and tables of property data.
- Ability to recognize, record and analyze the energy interactions of thermodynamic systems and the environment.
- Ability to apply mass, energy, entropy and exergy balances to thermodynamic systems and calculate parameters useful for designing and optimizing energy systems.
- Experimental exploration in laboratory exercises aims to bring trainees into contact with measurement devices, systems and procedures as well as methodologies for the processing and evaluation of their results.
