Energy Conversion MSE 423 (3)
Provides a detailed understanding of thermal energy conversion systems on the basis of the laws of thermodynamics. A main goal is to understand the processes in a broad variety of energy converging devices (e.g. power cycles). Some emphasis will be put on the study of the efficiency of energy conversion devices and efficiency improvements by changing the process details. Prerequisite: MSE 223 (or ENSC 283), MSE 321 (or ENSC 388, or PHYS 344) and a minimum of 80 credits.
