Instructional delivery format: 
Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to calculate boiler efficiency and losses, turbine heat rate and losses, and power plant efficiencies.


Major topics include: turbine heat-rate calculation; heat loss calculation for load change, circulating water temperature, back pressure, superheat and reheat attemperation, turbine foiling and deterioration, throttle pressure and temperature, reheat temperature, feedwater heater, and auxiliary power; boiler efficiency calculations; causes and measurements of losses: steam flow, fuel usage, outside air temperature, combustion, air leakage, exit gas temperature, and atomizing steam; American Society of Mechanical Engineersr (ASME) test code procedures for turbine efficiency, feedwater heater, and boiler heat balances; analysis and evaluation of test results to determine causes for losses and the effects on heat rate.

Credit recommendation: 

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 2 semester hours in Electromechanical, Energy Management, Combustion, or Mechanical Engineering Technology (5/88) (5/93 revalidation) (12/98 revalidation) (1/04 revalidation) (10/14 revalidation) (9/19 revalidation). NOTE: If credit has already been awarded for Power Plant Thermodynamics (FPE-0205), the credit recommendation for this course is reduced to 1 semester hour.
