In this subject, student will study various processes of energy conversion involving heat and fluid flow, especially in power
systems. Exercises related to energy conversion are presented in each class, and through solving them, students acquire the
ability to apply various laws of physics to energy conversion problems.

The purpose of this class is to acquire the ability to characterize energy conversion processes based on fundamental knowledge
such as thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer.

- Students will acquire the ability to identify issues necessary for evaluating the characteristics of energy conversion processes after understanding the working mechanism of energy conversion devices,
- Students will be able to accurately judge what kind of knowledge is necessary to solve the problems.
- Students will find ways to solve problems and be able to actually solve them.
- Students will be able to evaluate the validity of the obtained solution and derive useful knowledge from it.
