Rationale
Thermal energy, hydraulic and pneumatic systems are being used for generating required pressure, work, energy and control for desired performance in machine tools, material handling equipment, robots, automobiles and in equipment related with marine, mining, metal processing. The mechatronics engineer should be aware of concepts, principles, laws and applications of Thermal energy, hydraulic and pneumatic systems. This course has been introduced to develop necessary knowledge and skills in Thermal energy, hydraulic and pneumatic systems among diploma students of mechatronics.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes:

i. Analyse the thermodynamic processes of pure substance and steam formation process with P-V, T-S and H-S diagrams
ii. Apply thermodynamic cycles with P-V, T-S and H-S diagrams
iii. Analyse the applications of fluid mechanics for lubrication systems also.
iv. Maintain hydraulic devices
v. Maintain pneumatic devices
