learning outcomes
professional knowledge
Students remember the terms of the fuel, combustion equipment and flue gas heat exchangers. Describe the basic methods of preparation of fuel for suitability for combustion. They will be able to compare the advantages and disadvantages of each type of combustion equipment in terms of size and power efficiency. Stoichiometric relations are applied to calculate the volume of combustion air and flue gases arising. Shall calculate each boiler heat exchangers. Selects appropriate method for removing harmful substances from flue gases. Differentiate the various ways to control the boiler.
