Thermodynamics - ENGG3260
This course aims at familiarizing the students with fundamental principles of thermodynamics, thermodynamic tools, and their applications for real world energy systems.
The overall theme of this course is the application of the first and second laws of thermodynamics to engineering applications related to flow devices, power generation, and air-conditioning. Students also expected to understand how thermodynamic properties are related to each other. In the analysis of steady flow devices, students shall be able to make necessary simplifications and be able to apply correctly both the First Law and Second Law of thermodynamics.
In the analysis of power generation cycles, students are expected to formulate appropriate idealized thermodynamic process models and analyze cycle efficiency. In the analysis of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, the students are expected to simply analyse heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems based on first and second law of thermodynamics.
Energy Management and Utilization - ENGG3250
This course aims at introducing the basic concepts and techniques for energy management and utilization.
Multiple subjects will be discussed in the course to strengthen these concepts including energy distribution, supply and demand, energy pricing, scope of the energy problem and approaches to provide solutions, energy auditing, improving energy utilization in space, mechanical and electrical equipment in buildings such as air conditioning, heating, steam, hot water and compressed air systems, energy saving opportunities in refrigeration and cooling systems, insulation, and finally energy conservation.
Both practical and analytical approaches integrated with basic analysis of thermo-fluids and heat transfer systems will be employed in this course to provide a deep understanding of the energy subject.
Engineering Measurements - ENGG6090
The ability to design and control engineering systems, evaluate performance, and prevent failures relies on our ability to obtain and analyze data. This course provides students with the basic tools required to gather information about physical systems and processes with a variety of instrumentation systems. Although some practical aspects of measurements will be covered, the course will primarily focus on the theory of how the instruments work and estimating the errors involve in the measurements. The lecture will be delivered in a seminar style and industry will be invited to present some practical aspects of engineering measurements and instrumentation. Students will pursue the details of different type of measurements through the assignments that are related to the student research.
This course covers wide range of engineering measurements and instrumentation. Topics include: Principle of engineering measurements, flow measurements, flow visualization, temperature measurements, pressure acoustic measurements, non-Newtonian liquid flow measurements, turbulent measurements, two-phase flow measurements, error and uncertainly analysis, calibration, integration of sensors with filtering, amplification, noise suppression and data sampling.
