The aim of the course is to introduce students to the basic elements of thermodynamics, equilibrium and zero law of thermodynamics, the concept of internal energy, work, heat and enthalpy, the first law of thermodynamics, state functions (internal energy, enthalpy, free energy, free enthalpy and entropy), the second and third theorems of thermodynamics, real gas properties, phase diagrams, gas and vapor energy conversion cycles, refrigerators and heat pumps.
Competences that can be acquired by completing the course
Knows the commonly used conceptual framework of thermodynamics. Knows the main functional relationships between status indicators. The student interprets Le Chatelier-Braun's principle and the Gibbs-Duhem equation. The student has a comprehensive knowledge of all the main theorems that form the basis of thermodynamics. Interprets and can use the principle of thermodynamic entropy maximum. Understands the structure of state diagrams and phase diagrams and how to use them. Understands methods and characteristics for describing multicomponent systems. The student is informed about the structure and operation of the gas and steam circuits of the energy converter (service provider and contractor). The student is aware of the concept of the substitution cycles. The student is aware of the use of quantities (efficiency, effectiveness, power factor) to characterize cycles.
Able to describe real systems with abstract thermodynamic models. Apply the models needed to describe the processes that take place in thermodynamic systems. Solves multidimensional analysis of thermodynamic systems and processes. Able to represent thermodynamic processes in state diagrams. Interprets simpler and more complex thermodynamic problems. The student makes a proposal for solving complex, computationally intensive tasks. Able to express his / her thoughts orally and in writing in an orderly manner. Calculates the properties of ideal gases during and at the end of simple state changes. Use databases with appropriate thermodynamic and material properties. The student explores the simple components of complex thermodynamic processes.
The student seeks to collaborate with the instructor and fellow students in expanding knowledge. The studentt continuously expands and improves his/her knowledge. Open to the use of information technology tools. Expands your toolkit for thermodynamic problem solving. The student strives for an accurate and error-free solution. The student seeks to apply the principles of energy efficiency and environmental awareness in solving thermodynamic problems.
Independence and responsibility
The student independently thinks through thermodynamic problems and problems and solves them based on specific sources. Evaluates well-founded critical remarks. In some situations, as part of a team, the student work with fellow students to solve tasks. The student proposes a systematic approach to solving problems. Collaborates with group peers in group projects.
Lectures, calculation exercises performed jointly and individually, written and oral communication, use of appropriate IT tools and techniques, optional independent and group assignments, their appropriate level of presentation, acquisition of work organization techniques. Hold group and individual consultations as needed. At the beginning of each lecture, a short test from the material of the previous lecture; depending on the result, repeating parts of the previous material.

Validity of the course description
|Start of validity:||2021. May 3.|
|End of validity:||2025. December 31.|
Learning outcomes are assessed on the basis of four mid-year written performance measures (two level assessments and two summative study performance assessments), homework and active participation in internships (partial performance assessment). Summative performance evaluations can be repeated twice. Diligent homework (10% extra points can be earned) and writing a short test related to previous lectures at the beginning of the lectures (5% extra points can be earned) can improve the result of the compulsory examinations. Due to their nature, they cannot be repaired / replaced.
Detailed description of mid-term assessments
|Mid-term assessment No. 1|
|Purpose, description:||In order to complete further studies successfully within the subject, it is absolutely necessary to check the existence of knowledge-type competence elements in writing (examination dissertation), which takes place during the practical session of the subject; the part of the curriculum on which the level assessment is based is determined by the supervisor; test papers may consist of theoretical questions to be explained, which are lexical knowledge; from test questions, which are the interpretation of each concept and the recognition of the connections between them; essay questions on synthesizing skills and computational tasks on problem recognition-solving skills; the available working time is a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 25 minutes.|
|Mid-term assessment No. 2|
|Purpose, description:||The complex, written way of evaluating the competence elements of the subject and knowledge, ability type in the form of an indoor dissertation, the dissertation basically focuses on the application of the acquired knowledge, so it focuses on problem recognition and solution, The underlying part of the curriculum is determined by the lecturer of the subject in agreement with the supervisors, the available working time is 90 minutes.|
Detailed description of assessments performed during the examination period
The subject does not include assessment during the examination period.
The weight of mid-term assessments in signing or in final grading
|Mid-term assessment No. 1||20 %|
|Mid-term assessment No. 2||80 %|
The weight of partial exams in grade
There is no exam belongs to the subject.
Determination of the grade
|Grade||ECTS||The grade expressed in percents|
|very good (5)||Excellent [A]||above 90 %|
|very good (5)||Very Good [B]||85 % - 90 %|
|good (4)||Good [C]||72 % - 85 %|
|satisfactory (3)||Satisfactory [D]||65 % - 72 %|
|sufficient (2)||Pass [E]||50 % - 65 %|
|insufficient (1)||Fail [F]||below 50 %|
The lower limit specified for each grade already belongs to that grade.
Attendance and participation requirements
The lack of the value means that there is no attendance requirement.
At least 70% the exercises (rounded down) must be actively attended.
Special rules for improving, retaken and replacement
The special rules for improving, retaken and replacement shall be interpreted and applied in conjunction with the general rules of the CoS (TVSZ).
|Need mid-term assessment to invidually complete?|
|The way of retaking or improving a summary assessment for the first time:|
|the summative assessments can be retaken or improved only combined|
|Is the retaking-improving of a summary assessment allowed, and if so, than which form:|
|one single, combined retake or grade-improving exam is possible for all assesments|
|Taking into account the previous result in case of improvement, retaken-improvement:|
