[Summary of Lecture] This course focuses on the energy operation in chemical industry and basic knowledge for energy conversion. Topics in the energy operation include heat exchanger, evaporation operation, and heat transfer in those processes.
[Aim of Lecture] This lecture aims for students to understand fundamental knowledge and design concept about energy operation and energy conversion in chemical industry.
By the end of this course, student will be able to explain: 1) fundamentals of heat exchanger and evaporation operation, 2) design method of heat exchanger and evaporation plant, 3) heat transfer mechanism of heat exchanger and evaporation operation.
Heat exchanger, Evaporation operation, Heat transfer, Evaporation heat transfer, Condensation heat transfer, Thermal property, Temperature measurement, Energy conversion
