Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to Los:
The approach adopted shall be of a participative nature with lectures and tutorials followed with
experimentation and case studies.

Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills:
Guest lectures by industry and local government personnel shall be organised. Course work shall form the basis for: (i) PDP and (ii) scholarship.

Assessment (formative and summative):
The formative assessment will be an exercise on energy audit and Carbon foot print analysis of domestic
energy consumption. This will also include an feasibility of Carbon trading. A 2,500 word report
encompassing the above technical analysis shall be expected.

Research/ teaching linkages:
Strong links with energy industry and the local council regarding energy policy shall be maintained.

Supporting equality and diversity:
Throughout lectures and tutorials examples shall be used to support equality, diversity and
internationalisation.

Internationalisation
Throughout lectures and tutorials examples shall be used to support equality, diversity and
internationalisation.

Formative Assessment:
The University is currently undertaking work to improve the quality of information provided on methods of assessment and feedback. Please refer to the section on Learning and Teaching Approaches above for further information about this module’s learning, teaching and assessment practices, including formative and summative approaches.

Summative Assessment:
The University is currently undertaking work to improve the quality of information provided on methods of assessment and feedback. Please refer to the section on Learning and Teaching Approaches above for further information about this module’s learning, teaching and assessment practices, including formative and summative approaches.

Description of module content:

Combustion: processes, equipment and environmental impact. Boilers. Combined Heat & Power. Pumps: design, operation and performance. The module will introduce conventional as well as more modern, energy efficient practice. The three 'e's - economy, energy and environmental impact of energy generation and energy use technologies shall be addressed throughout.

Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: analyse combustion processes and their impact.
LO2: develop an advanced understanding of thermodynamics of advanced energy systems;
LO3: analyse the performance of sub-critical and super-critical boilers;
LO4: evaluate the reserves and impact of the use of limited fossil fuels;
LO5: analyse the performance of pumps.
