Upon successful completion of this course the student will develop the following skills:
- Energy analysis and design of cycles and power and cooling systems.
- Implementation of thermodynamic laws and mass, energy, entropy and exergy balances for the design and optimization of energy production and consumption systems.
- Use of Thermodynamic relationships for calculations of thermodynamic properties of substances used in technological processes.
- Analysis of thermodynamic processes including gas mixtures, chemical reactions and high speed flow 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 of their results and their evaluation.
The above knowledge is necessary and prerequisite for further courses in Mechanical and Aeronautics Engineering, such as that of Heat Transfer, ICE, Gas Turbines and Steam Turbines, etc.
