Learning Objectives - Part A
The objective of the course is to provide knowledge about Gas Turbines
in different use and applications e.g. land-based, propulsion
CAPACITY ACQUIRED AT THE END OF THE COURSE:
Able to assess the performance of a power or propulsion system
gas turbine based, under real operating conditions.
Know and compare different types of power systems and/or propulsion system.
With reference to the knowledge (CC) identified for the course, reference is made to the following descriptors:
cc1: In-depth knowledge in the field of energy and electricity cc2:Tools for modeling energy/mechanical/propulsion systems and their role in supporting the analysis and design of systems and components. Understanding the organization of information in databases and computer design to support processes While in reference to the competences acquired (CA) identified for the Course reference is made to the following descriptors:
ca1: Ability of analysis and modeling of mechanical/electrical/propulsive components and systems: basic problems and models for industrial engineering, with special reference to mechanical and energy engineering. ca3: Ability of designing, analyze, plan and manage energy conversion systems and their environmental impact, as well as complex and/or innovative service and process systems. ca5:Identify, formulate and solve industrial engineering problems, with special focus to energy issues. ca8:Ability of analyzing plants, components and process technologies and methods of engineering and their economic implications ca10: Communication skills to transfer information, ideas and solutions to specialists and others, in Italian and English
Prerequisites - Part A
Concepts of energy systems and turbo machinery with particular reference to
gas-turbine cycles and multistage gas turbines.
Teaching Methods - Part A
Lessons, classroom exercises and workshops with activities in small groups. Guided tours to industries and laboratories.
Type of Assessment - Part A
Gas turbine Cycle modelling laboratory - Oral test
In the Gas Turbine Cycle Modeling Laboratory, students in small groups (3-4) deal with specific cases of study of gas turbine plants and/or aero-engine with OD numerical models of the different components. Laboratories activities are held in the last month of the course during which no frontal lessons are held. In the oral test we discuss Laboratories works and a theoretical question related to the lessons topics is discussed.
In the Laboratory of gas turbine cycle modeling the 1.2 cc are highlighted in a context addressed to problem solving, the discussion of the results must also highlight the ca 1 with adequate presentation capacity (ca10). In the course of the oral discussion, the most theoretical ccs are particularly verified and adequate skills are required to deal with the topics discussed in lessons.
N.B. For the definition of cc and ca please see the section Learning Objectives
