Thermal Power Plants


This course deals with both the foundations of energy conversion and the process chain of energy carriers. Later in the course, the thermodynamic energy conversion processes will be covered, which reflect the current state of technology (coal power plants, gas and steam power plants, nuclear power plants). Power plant control will also be more closely examined.

Educational Goals

The goal of this course is to provide students with the foundations of energy systems, so that an independent, objective assessment of these systems is possible.
