The application of the fundamental concepts of thermodynamics to the study of power and refrigeration cycles and combustion processes. Introduction to gas dynamic: concepts, nonreactive mixtures and psychrometrics.

Analysis and design of piping systems and heat exchangers. Selection of pumps and fans. Systems simulation and modeling.

A study of the fundamentals of steady and transient conduction, forced and natural convection, and radiation heat transfer modes. Introduction to heat exchangers.

This courses focuses on the application of engineering principles to design and analysis of power-production systems. Fossil fuel, gas-turbine power plants, and alternative power generation systems are studied. Environmental aspects of plant design and operation are discussed also. Analysis and design of major components such as boilers, turbines, condensers, cooling water systems, and auxiliary systems will be performed.
