Course Description

In this course complex thermodynamics systems are considered. The Ontario government announced AND MET that, by 2014, all coal-fired electrical generation stations are to be closed. What are the alternatives? How can we make better use of energy for heat and power? With the increased emphasise on renewable and sustainable energy, this course will help prepare students to deal with some of these vexing issues as well as to introduce you to heating, ventilation and air conditioning principles and some basic combustion theory. I will introduce emerging new technologies that may become part of your future, both as practicing engineers as well as users.
