Welcome - Energy Conversion Systems MECH 4810   Energy Conversion Systems
CREDIT HOURS: 3
Application of basic principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer to the analysis and synthesis of energy conversion systems are studied. Primary energy sources and global energy demand are examined. Principles of conventional methods, thermal systems, fuel types, combustors, and gas turbines, initial planning of a hydroelectric power plant, selection of turbines and other components, nuclear fission and fusion, clean energy production, and environmental aspects of energy production are covered.
