Course description: Course objectives: Introduction to boilers constructional and operational characteristics and calculation methods.
Enrolment requirements and required entry competences for the course: Thermodynamics I; Fluid Dynamics I
Student responsibilities: Attendance and active participation in lectures and exercises. Reading assigned material, homework assignments and seminars.
Grading and evaluation of student work over the course of instruction and at a final exam:
Methods of monitoring quality that ensure acquisition of exit competences: Written and oral exam. Seminars. Student" feedback and forum on portal eucenje.fsb.hr (Moodle system).
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to (learning outcomes): identify boilers with respect to their classification by type, analyze the individual components of the boiler and to determine its operating characteristics, make a stoichiometric calculation of combustion of different fuels in boilers and calculate the pollutant emissions from the boiler (CO2, SO2, NOx), choose the appropriate measures for cleaning the flue gases (particles, sulphur and nitrogen compounds, etc.), critically assess the suitability of the boiler from the standpoint of environmental protection taking into account the emission limit values for pollutants that are released into the atmosphere, make thermal and hydraulic calculation of the boiler and the initial calculation of the individual components of the boiler (furnace, steam superheater, air and water heaters, stack, etc.) by applying learned calculation algorithms, calculate the boiler efficiency with different methods, choose the boiler and recommend the best solution from the energy efficiency and environmental protection viewpoint, conduct thermal calculation and numerical simulation of boiler plant using one of the software tools (Matlab, Excel, Visual Basic), critically evaluate and discuss specific engineering problems related to the operation of a steam boiler and its role as the main part of the thermal power system, and propose technical solutions to the problems.
