The subject introduces power plants of all kinds dimensioning and functions. It describes diagrams topologies, operational modes, control and safety problems solutions. It models dynamics and control of main part in all power plants types. It evaluates and describes control qualities and programmes.


Requirements to obtain the assessment are exercises attendance and a term thesis elaborating.

Successful exam passing is determined in the Study and Examination Code of CTU in Prague.
