This course continues the study of energy systems and related environmental issues. The course begins with a revision of the first law of thermodynamics and heat transfer. It continues with a thorough examination of fluid dynamics and the second law of thermodynamics, emphasising energy analysis. Also included are quantitative economic and environmental analysis of design choices and thermo-economic optimisation (energy systems engineering). Generation of electric power is used as a systems theme for the course.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
Upon completion of this course, the student will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Understand and reason conceptually about the second law of thermodynamics via the concept of exergy analysis
- Understand and reason conceptually about the fundamentals of fluid dynamics.
- Analyse simple systems using knowledge of thermodynamics and fluid dynamics.
- Combine thermodynamics with simple economic analysis to develop a technique for optimising real world systems.
- Carry out an experimental investigation of the performance of a diesel engine generator set in a small group.
- Carry out an experimental investigation of a fluid dynamics application in a small group.
- Produce Engineering reports on the experimental investigations
- Experience the operation of power generating systems in an industrial environment via site visits.
Laboratory quizzes (30%); Assignment (15%); Final Exam (55%)
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
12-14h per week, including background reading and assessment.
Requisite and Incompatibility
The text books specified for the course are:
- Moran, M.J. & Shapiro, H.N. Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics
- Potter, M.C. & Wiggert, D.C. Mechanics of Fluids
Various editions are available second hand and any will do. The Hancock library has a range of suitable texts. Recommended reading and tutorial problems will be taken from these texts.
Tuition fees are for the academic year indicated at the top of the page.
If you are a domestic graduate coursework or international student you will be required to pay tuition fees. Students continuing in their current program of study will have their tuition fees indexed annually from the year in which you commenced your program. Further information for domestic and international students about tuition and other fees can be found at Fees.
