Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Expand students' knowledge in the field of dynamic properties of boilers and the basic control circuits.

Teaching methods



Students will learn the basics of the dynamic properties of boilers and their accessories, the basics of control systems (blockages, protection, ZSB) used in the field of power equipment. They will also learn about the structure of the main control circuits on the boiler and the power plant block, including their linkage to the dynamic properties of the controlled system (evaporator, steam superheater, mills, fireplace, boiler output, electrical power of the aod) and the links between them.
