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.
