    OVERVIEW

    The course describes the energy and propulsion systems based on fluid machinery. Power generation systems based on steam or gas turbines are discussed with attention focused on thermodynamic cycles and strategies to improve the energy conversion efficiency. The fluid machinery are then presented and discussed together with their operating principles and their design parameters.Volumetric fluid machinery and turbomachinery are described.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The module provides the students with the fundamental skills to interpret the processes, as well as the technologies, related to fluid machines, thermal machines and energy conversion systems. This allows the student to master the basic principles of thermodynamics and fluid dynamics when applied to the design and the analysis of energy conversion equipment, as well as to address the functional behavior of fluid machines.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The student will be able to select the most appropriate fluid machine to install in a given plant layout. The knowledge of the fllow physics and structures inside the fluid machinery will allow the student to understand in some detail the operation of the machine and to support him/her in trouble shooting in case of non conformal operation.

    PREREQUISITES

    Basic and applied thermodynamics are pre requisites to support at best the understanding of the physical and technical aspects in the present course

    TEACHING METHODS

    Teoretical lessons with numerical application exercises

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    Gas turbines and steam plants for energy producion or propulsion. Basic principles of fuel cells. Internal combustion engines. Volumetric compressors and pumps. Turbomachinery (axial and radial turbines and compressors).
