Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students are acquainted with bases theory, thermal calculation, construction, utilization and operation of combustion turbine and motors

Teaching methods



The course acquaints students with the issues of combustion turbines and engines used in cogeneration units in the field of electricity and heat production. In the field of internal combustion engines are discussed the piston combustion engines - function principle, ideal and actual working cycles, energy balance, diagrams, performance calculation, thermal and thermodynamic efficiency, increasing the efficiency and performance characteristics. The students are acquainted with design of piston engines - the construction of four-stroke and two-stroke engines, fuel preparation and dosing systems, cooling systems, ignition and control systems, construction of mobile and stationary motors and their use in energy production and transport. Another topic is the issue of ecology and economy of operation - emission systems, systems to increase efficiency, economy of operation, etc.
