ENGI-1142Prime Movers 1

In this introductory course students will study the theory behind prime movers and engines and in so doing, will be able to differentiate between a heat engine and a prime mover. They will become conversant with the relevant terminology, and will learn the principles of operation, construction, maintenance, types, lubrication, and classification of steam turbines, water turbines, gas turbines and internal combustion engines. As well, students will integrate knowledge gained from other content areas and apply this knowledge of plants systems to e.g., hot oil systems, thermal generating plants, gas processing, and pulp mills.
