About Course

This Steam Power (SP) Engineering course deals with steam power plants. One part of the course is about simple (SP) cycle, reheat, regeneration, and superheating.

Further actual cycles with component efficiencies would also be discussed. Then each component of the plant is discussed in detail. Initially, the types of steam generators and their parts were highlighted.

Then steam turbine, its type, efficiency, and arrangements are focused. Thus this course would provide an understanding of electricity generation or transportation applications using steam as a working medium.

 

INTENDED AUDIENCE: Undergraduate students of Mechanical engineering. (5 th semester onwards), industry personnel associated with thermal power plant; faculty members associated with Mechanical /Chemical/ Automobile engineering.
