Unit Code: MCD658

Unit Name: Power Plant Engineering

Description: Students are expected to develop the knowledge and understanding of the performance of various types of power plants for the generation of electric power and the principles of operations involved. This course also includes fuel preparation and handling, boiler types and the fundamentals of steam generation, water systems (condensate-feedwater, makeup, cooling, and waste), and considering the environmental aspects of steam and power generation. You will be well equipped with the responsibilities as plant operators and the skills required for the installation, running and maintenance of these plants.

Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, students should be able to: 1. Demonstrates knowledge and the responsibilities of an engineering technician on Power Plants 2. Applies established risk management strategies to minimise the likelihood of major environmental damage and significant economic loss occurring in the event of failure 3. Identifies operational hazards and sets out relevant steps to be taken to lower the risk to public health and safety 4. Identifies the significant factors that have impacts on the sustainability of practical and technical project work 5. Presents written reports for both technical and lay audiences, as is appropriate 6. Comprehends the importance of engaging with the maintenance scheduling processes in Industries, learning from its knowledge and standards
