## Description

This course introduces the concept of energy and the laws governing the transfers and transformations of energy. The course begins with an emphasis on thermodynamic properties and the First and Second Law analysis of systems and control volumes. This follows with an integration of these concepts into the analysis of basic power cycles. The course continues with an emphasis on the analysis of power and refrigeration cycles and the application of basic principles to engineering problems.

## Learning Outcomes

• Washington Accord (V4) Summary of Graduate Attributes attained in this course:
 WA1 – Engineering Knowledge
 WA2 – Problem Analysis
 WA3 – Design/Development of Solutions
 WA4 – Investigation

• Course topics with Learning Outcomes (and Washington Accord (WA) and UC Graduate Attributes) identified.

1. Concepts and Definitions, Measurements; Evaluating Properties
1.1. Determine properties of ideal gases and phase change fluids from either tabular data or equations of state (WA1)
2. Energy and the First Law of Thermodynamics
2.1. Apply the First Law to systems and control volumes to perform energy balances and to determine heat and work transfer.
3. Control Volume Analysis Using Energy
3.1. Analyse processes involving ideal gases and real substances as working fluids in both closed systems and open systems or control volumes to determine state relations and to sketch process diagrams (WA1, WA2)
3.2. Understand and apply the concepts of work, heat, and energy to processes (WA1, WA2)
4. The Second Law of Thermodynamics
4.1. Apply Second Law analysis to systems and control volumes; understand the statements of the Second Law and their implication on all processes (WA2, WA3, WA4)
5. Using Entropy
5.1. Retrieve entropy data for steam and refrigerant, use the air tables for isentropic processes, find isentropic process properties, and understand the definition of Exergy (WA1)
6. Vapor Power Systems; Gas Power Systems; Refrigeration and Heat Pump Systems
6.1. Analyse power and refrigeration cycles requiring comprehension of system components, process diagrams; be able to perform First and Second Law analysis on these to determine heat and work transfer, calculate the cycle efficiency or coefficient of performance (WA2, WA3, WA4)
7. Laboratories
7.1. Integrate fundamental thermodynamics laboratory synthesis and processing, as well as analysis of experimental data.
