Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Oriented in the areas of labor use different types of thermal turbines. Describe the processes that characterize the transformation of thermal energy in the turbines. Describe the basic energy and economic criteria for assessment of thermal turbines. Discussion of economic and environmental consequences of energy transformation processes turbines. Proposal for solving complex management processes in engine power central heating.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Experimental work in labs


Students acquire basic knowledge and awareness about currents and transformational events above all in turbines. The acquired knowledge in these subjects and in these given above is used in complex ways for the theoretical calculation of the individual parts of energetic machines. The goal of this subject is to give a specialised background to graduates of VŠB - the Technical University, which will work as designers, but above all as operators of energetic equipment. In addition to this they must have their own economic and ecological approaches.
