ENGG*4230 Energy Conversion F (3-3) [0.75]
The course introduces the technical criteria for the design of efficient energy conversion processes and systems. It covers review of boilers and cycles, fuel and combustion calculations, and fundamentals of both traditional and emerging energy conversion processes and systems for production of thermal, mechanical, and electrical energy. Topics include fossil, biomass, nuclear fuels, wind, solar, geothermal and fuel cells. Mechanisms for storing energy generated from each of these systems are also studied. The course also discusses conversion of automobile, renovation of old fossil fuel fired plant, co-firing of opportunity fuel, waste to energy technology, emission, and economics of energy projects.
