Anotation:

This course is an introduction to the field of thermodynamic processes in thermal power plants, energy balances and structure of various renewable and conventional energy production technologies. Students will became also familiar with individual components of self consumption of power plants. The power generation and distribution are linked to high voltage systems and insulation materials. The fundamental theory of often used insulation materials and their propertis will be explained. Lightning and switching overvoltages and their impact to the insulation of electric power system will be discussed at the end of the course.

Course outlines:

1. Classification of energy resources and fundamental terminology
2. Laws of thermodynamics and thermodynamic processes
3. Thermodynamic cycles and their efficiency improvements
4. Energy balance equations of thermal power plant
5. Technological circuits of thermal power plants
6. Nuclear reactors and power plants
7. Electric power system of power plants, structure and dimensioning of self consumption system
