|MECH1700||Advanced Boiler Systems and Pumps
Description: This course utilizes the virtual classroom and resulting interactivity to prepare candidates to challenge the 2nd Class Power Engineering exam 2A3. Topics of study include an advanced study of steam generator design, applications, installation, and components. Advanced operations including water treatment and maintenance procedures are emphasized. A more detailed investigation of pumps included theory, and control methodology is also covered. This course will utilize the college advanced pump and boiler simulation models through an online operating interface to reinforce the advance operations component. Note: Student must be a registered 3rd Class Engineer with an active registration number.
|MECH1670||Advanced Thermodynamics and Material Science
Description: This course utilizes the virtual classroom and resulting interactivity to prepare candidates to challenge the 2nd Class Power Engineering exam 2A2. Topics of study include calculations of thermal expansion in solids, liquids and gases. Gas laws and problems involving expansion or compression of gases are covered in detail. Thermodynamics of steam including entropy lead into calculations of steam cycles in a power plant setting. Heat engine cycles for various types of engines are detailed. Candidates will demonstrate a thorough understanding of material properties, composition, treatments and uses. Corrosion principles and control methods are covered. Mechanical testing of materials for both destructive and NDE methods are detailed.
|MECH1730||Electrotechnology, Compression and Refrigeration
Description: This course utilizes the virtual classroom and resulting interactivity to prepare candidates to challenge the 2nd Class Power Engineering exam 2B3. The course includes a more advanced study of the theory of operation of electrical machines, and electrical distribution systems; leading into a detailed look at the construction and characteristics of AC and DC motors, generators, and other electrical equipment. The other major areas of study are principles, equipment and auxiliary systems with respect to gas compression systems and large scale refrigeration plants. Safety and code requirements are emphasized. This course will utilize the college advanced compressor and refrigeration simulation models through an online operating interface to reinforce operation and troubleshooting of these systems.
