EMAN308 Thermoprocesses 2

Gas mixtures, psychrometry, air conditioning, compressed air processes, refrigeration and power cycles, combustion, emission and instrumentation.

The overall aims are that students will learn to correctly apply the first and second laws of thermodynamics and the thermodynamic potentials to the solution of energy problems, be able to carry out quantitative and qualitative analysis of thermodynamic processes and be aware of the relationships between engineering thermodynamics and the design of energy conversion systems. The paper has several themes: increasing theoretical knowledge, using analysis tools, understanding the context of applied thermodynamics, developing professional skills and appreciating the engineering design limitations of energy-conversion systems.
