Course description and aims

This course will provide knowledge of recent technologies in automobile and rail cars power trains, such as gasoline engines, diesel engines, gas turbines, fuel cells and lithium batteries, including fundamentals of thermodynamics, heat transfer, chemical kinetics and electrochemical reactions. In addition, with regards to internal combustion engines, the instructor will provide knowledge of aftertreatment technologies along with fundamentals of thermodynamics and catalytic chemical kinetics. This course includes a short-term internship completed in a laboratory at the Thai National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) in the Thai Science Park (TSP).

Student learning outcomes

By completing this course, students will be able to understand the principles, the structure and significant issues of each power train for automobile and rail cars through fundamentals of thermodynamics, heat transfer, catalytic chemical kinetics and electrochemical reactions. Simultaneously, students will acquire the ability to communicate with researchers in NSTDA through research activities.

Keywords

Power train for automobiles and rail cars, Gasoline engine, Diesel engine, Gas turbine engine, Fuel cell, Lithium battery

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

This course consists of a short-term internship in a laboratory at the NSTDA in the Thai Science Park, as well as lectures and exercises for homework. Students should attend an intensive lecture period either from classes 1 to 5, 6 to 10, or 11 to 15. Simultaneously, students will join a laboratory at the NSTDA for research activities.
