ENAM12005 Thermal Energy Plant

Course details

This course introduces students to the analysis of thermal energy plant using basic principles of thermodynamics. They use standard thermodynamics tables and solve basic problems relating to flow and non-flow processes; apply the laws of thermodynamics and energy equations to basic energy plant problems; and analyse heat engine and refrigeration cycles. Students are required to communicate effectively regarding technical aspects of thermodynamics, prepare technical and laboratory reports, clearly document technical procedures problem solutions, and evaluate uncertainties and the results of their work. They are required to develop a capacity to work and communicate ethically and professionally, as individuals and in teams, to investigate and solve problems and present solutions professionally.
A compulsory residential school is provided to promote development of course learning outcomes.
