7M07109801 «Heat power engineering»

At the present stage, the development of human civilization is impossible without a wide use of energy. Energy is a branch of the national economy, encompassing energy resources, production, transformation, transfer and use of various forms of energy. The main forms of energy currently used are heat and electricity. Thermal engineering is a special field of human activity, which involves the transfer of heat into electricity and mechanical energy, which usually occurs at thermal power plants, and vice versa: the translation of other types of energy into heat. You will get the skills to choose calculation methods and equipment selection for water and fuel preparation systems.
