This course supplements a person's practical qualifying experience (as described in the British Columbia power Engineers, Boiler, Pressure Vessel and Refrigeration Regulation) by providing the theoretical training required to enable graduates to challenge the Interprovincial Standardized Power Engineer's Examination for Part A - Paper 2 of a First Class Power Engineer's Certificate. On successful completion of this course, as well as courses POWR 1225, POWR 1227, POWR 1228, POWR 1229, POWR 1230, POWR 1231, and POWR 1232, plus the requisite qualifying experience, participants will have sufficient skills and knowledge to fulfil the requirements of the First Class Power Engineer's Certificate examinations administered under the British Columbia Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety Program. Graduates should be able to apply the knowledge learned in this study program in improving their abilities to operate plant equipment within the scope of a First Class Power Engineer's Certificate. Topics include Principles of Applied and Fluid Mechanics.
Upon successful completion, course participants will be able to:
Fulfill the examination requirements for 'Part A - Paper 2' in the subject of thermodynamics.
Describe principles and apply equations to determine unknown variables in calculation problems relating to the individual topics listed in the course outline for Thermodynamics I and II, including heat, heat transfer, laws of perfect gases, expansion and compression of perfect gases, steam, entropy, turbines, boilers and combustion.
Effective as of Fall 2003
