Turbomachines

Objectives

This course introduces the working principles of turbomachines. It’s aimed at developing an understanding, from fluid mechanics and thermodynamics point of view, how these devices work, performs and can be regulated. By the end of the course, students should have knowledge and understanding of:

  • Understand the application of fundamentals of Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics to obtain the operating conditions of turbomachines.
  • Able to analyze vapor and gas power systems, hydraulic systems, characteristic curves of turbomachines.
  • Apply specific speed, specific diameter and Cordier diagram for turbomachine selection.
