Rationale
Thermal systems are most important part of industrial sector. In the absence of proper operation & maintenance of thermal systems it becomes difficult to manage economic use of energy and its conservation with the least damage to the environment. This course provides the underpinning knowledge and skills related to principles, types & working of these systems like boilers, heat exchangers, furnaces, HVAC etc. which are normally high energy consumption devices. Study of this course would help students to choose proper design and specifications of these high energy consuming devices so that energy is saved in resulting low cast of production as well as less damage to environment. This course is therefore a key course for thermal engineers.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practicals should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Select available energy sources in a given situation.
ii. Determine boiler performance based on energy efficiency parameters.
iii. Analyze performance of furnace for a particular application.
iv. Determine the performance of heat exchanger in a given situation.
v. Calculate load of HVAC systems.
