Power Plant Thermodynamics (FPE-0205)
40 hours (1 week).
October 1987 - Present.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to explain the power plant cycle, the Rankine cycle, and the functions of power plant components and utilize steam tables to determine cycle efficiencies.
Major topics include: properties of water and steam tables used to analyze plant efficiency; cycle efficiency; plant heat rate; factors that affect boiler and turbine generator efficiencies.
