3. Thermodynamic power cycles, possibility of efficiency increasing
4. Steam turbines for classical and nuclear power stations, structures, characteristics, function
5. Combustion turbines and microturbines, structures, characteristics, function
6. Heat exchangers and steam generators
7. Hydrodynamics of real turbines
8. Conduit (pipelines) systems
9. Models and function of boiler (steam generator)
10. Combined gas-vapour power cycles
11. Turbines for hydraulic power stations, characteristics, function for different heads of water and installed powers
12. Characteristics of auxiliary equipment (hydraulic pumps, valves, hydraulic servomechanisms)
13. Machinery components of disperse sources
14. Modern combustion systems and ecology
