 Synopsis:

With this course, students are introduced into the problem of thermal calculation and design of nuclear devices thermodynamic diagrams. Step by step they will learn more about basic quantities and terms in technical thermodynamic, basic reversible and nonreversible thermodynamic changes and cycles with ideal gas. The main focus of course is in thermodynamic of steam: basic reversible and nonreversible thermodynamic changes with steam and RankineClausius cycle. In detail are analyed miscellaneous methods of thermal efficiency increasing of RankineClausius cycle. Course closure is dedicated to thermodynamic of gas mixtures and humid air.
