|Unit title & code||Thermal Systems and Applications CIS109-2|
|Assignment number and title||1|
|Assignment type||Group Report|
|Weighting of assignment||40 %|
|Size or length of assessment||2500 Word maximum limit for individual submissions|
|Unit learning outcomes||Demonstrate the following knowledge and understanding: Identify, evaluate and analyse steam systems, cooling cycles and their applications into various thermal machineries. |
Demonstrate the following skills and abilities:
Perform analysis and evaluation of various thermal systems and implement optimisation of performance for those thermal systems.
|What am I required to do in this assignment?|
|Students will be divided into groups of 3. Work with your colleagues in the group and then produce word-processed documents and oral presentation detailing the work that you have done. If there is a dispute within the group, you should inform the lecturer or unit coordinator, so that a meeting with the group can be held in the first or second weeks of the assignment where the matter can be resolved.|
Instructions Your group has been given an initial compression ratio to design an internal combustion engine-based heat and power generation system. The system will comprise of an internal combustion engine, a heat recovery system. You are required to calculate the total heat and power that can be generated with this system and calculate the daily fuel requirement based on a 16-hour 50 % operation.
|The groups are to use the following compression ratios and individual members are to use the swept volumes given: |
Do a study on various heat and power generation technologies. [10 %]
Size your engine based on the above information. Bear in mind that the engine will run at a fixed RPM as it will be used for power generation. [30 %]
Detail the operating parameters of the engine. [10 %]
Design the heat recovery system that will fit this engine and calculate the amount of heat that you can recover. [20 %]
Consider whether you can use the recovered heat to run another bottoming cycle power generation device. [20 %]
Summaries your system and write and predict how your system will behave over a period of time. You are required to calculate the CO2 produced and the heat and power generated. [10 %]
Deliverables and Method of Delivery
From each group:
Both a group member list and what each group member’s contribution is. This needs to be submitted to the unit coordinator by the group leader by Week 6 (latest 10:00am, 04.11.2022).
You are required to produce an individual report of 2500 word max detailing your design. You are required to upload your report on BREO (under Assignment 1).
|What do I need to do to pass? (Threshold Expectations from UIF)|
|Demonstrate understanding of the concepts and their relevance to engineering.|
|How do I produce high quality work that merits a good grade?|
|You will be marked only on the work submitted in the word-processed report. Your individual mark will be influenced by your own work, your contribution to the group area on BREO and progress feedback.|
|How does this assignment relate to what we are doing in scheduled sessions?|
|The tasks in this assignment are relating what you are learning in the whole unit.|
