EST-202 - Power Plant Operations3 credits
An extensive study is made of the complex systems that make up the steam generation plant. Emphasis is placed on: boiler and steam generators and their classification and structural design, applied mechanics and related equipment such as heaters, receivers, pumps and piping systems. Combustion and the transfer of heat released by the burning of fuels requires a study of thermodynamics and the heat capacities of different substances. Steam tables and other charts are used. Chimneys and the mechanical draft equipment required for the combustion process are also studied.
