The course focuses on the processes associated with perfect and imperfect combustion of fuel (heating value, burning temperature, excess air factor, the general equation of oxygen balance, the amount and composition of flue gas and desulphurization), next section is focused on the thermodynamic processes in the power plant (work, thermal and thermodynamic efficiency, regeneration cycle), calculations associated with combined cycle and cooling cycles and heat pump cycles.

Last update: Mištová Eva Ing. Ph.D. (22.01.2018)

Students will be able to:

to calculate the amount and composition of flue gases during perfect and imperfect combustion of the fuel, the actual combustion temperature, coefficient of excess air, heat loss, steam generator balance, thermal and thermodynamic efficiency, the amount of steam produced, fuel burned and the amount of cooling water and its loss, superheated steam temperature regulation by injection of condensate, efficiency of combined cycle, values associated with cooling to a low temperature in a wet or dry refrigeration cycle.
