Prerequisite
Engineering Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer
Rationale
The course is designed to give fundamental knowledge of construction and working of various types of thermal power plants i.e. steam turbine, gas turbine, nuclear etc.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Understand the different power generation methods, its economics and global energy situation
2. Apply the basic thermodynamics and fluid flow principles to different power generation methods
3. Analyze thermodynamic cycles of steam power plant and understand construction,working and significance of its various systems
4. Analyze thermodynamic cycles of gas turbine power plant, nuclear power plant and jet propulsion systems

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
