Having successfully completed the course, the student will have demonstrated the ability to:
- Develop mathematical models for exergy analyses to predict the energetic, exergetic, and exergoeconomic performance of an energy conversion system;
- Program these mathematical models into a computer;
- Use the programmed models to run parametric, what-if, and simulations studies for design purposes;
- Post process the results from these studies and present in professional tables and figures;
- Interpret the significance of these results, particularly in terms of the underlying theory leading to these results and what they mean in terms of design, operation and control;
- Add-value to ones work by exploring a problem beyond the minimum requirements based on your curiosity and engineering judgment.
- Communicate the results both through formal written reports and oral presentations;
