Course on Process Flow & Heat Transfer Modelling of Thermal Power Plants

About Course

This Course deals with Thermal - Hydraulic modelling and simulation of fossil powerplant systems, sub-systems and components to understand the behaviour at steady-state and transient/dynamic conditions with integrated simulation of different mechanical, thermal, fluid, control and electrical systems.


This course aims to cover the basic to advanced theory  of thermal-hydraulic systems with Integrated simulation of

  • Thermodynamics
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Heat Transfer
  • Control Systems
  • Mechanical Systems
  • Electrical Systems

to steady the stead-state and dynamic behaviour of component, sub-system and system level. Course will cover the different scenarios of that occur in an thermal power / fossil power plants like hammer, cavitation, pipe break, pump performance drop, combustion and so on.

What Will I Learn?
