Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To extend knowledge of students in thermomechanics and power engineering gained within a graduate program.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


Balance the equation. Energy, exergy, anergy in terms of first and second sentences of thermodynamics. Material balance. Energy balance - the chemical heat flow, enthalpy of combustion components, exothermic reactions, useful, lossy. Efficiency and other characteristics of the heating equipment. Exergy balance - exergy chemical heat flow, exergy heat flow of combustion components, charge material, exothermic reactions, useful, lossy.
