Prerequisite
Fundamentals of Courses like Power Systems, Electrical Machines, Applied thermal and hydraulic engineering etc.
Rationale
The course provides basic understanding of energy audit and management. The consumption of energy is increasing day by day. One way to cope up with the increase in energy demand is to increase the production of energy which demands more investment and the other way is to conserve the energy as energy conserved/saved is twice the energy generated. Energy conservation means reduction in energy consumption but not compromising with the quality or quantity of energy production. Essential theoretical and practical knowledge about the concept of energy conservation, energy management, different approaches of energy conservation in industries, economic aspects of energy conservation project and energy audit and measuring instruments in commercial and industrial sector will be achieved through this course.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to,
1. Identify and assess the energy conservation/saving opportunities in different electric system
2. Identify and assess energy conservation opportunities in thermal system
3. Demonstrate skills required for energy audit and management.
4. Prepare energy flow diagrams and energy audit report
5. Suggest cost-effective measures towards improving energy efficient and energy conservation.

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 gets 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 be submitted to GTU
