Basics of Energetics

Course Description

Study program: Environmental Engineering (V semester -OAS), Mining Engineering (V semester -OAS), Petroleum Engineering (V semester -OAS)

Name of subject: Basics of Energetics

Instructors: Dr Marija Živković, Dr Dejan Ivezić

Status: Optional


Prerequisites: -

Course Objectives: Developing an interdisciplinary approach to technological and engineering problems related to energetics. Familiarization with renewable and non-renewable energy sources, their general characteristics, reserves, methods of usage, etc. Education about energy transformations, efficiency, environmental and economic parameters. Introduction with preparation and interpretation of an energy balance for various consumers.

Learning Outcomes: Upon the course completion students are educated about energy sources (genesis, composition,physical and thermodynamic properties, resources, reserves). They are capable to analyse energy flows, to prepare energy balances for various consumers.


Theory teaching
History of energetics. Basic concepts and definitions. Primary energy. Non renewable energy sources: coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear, oil shales, bituminous sands. Renewable energy sources: hydro, solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, wave, tidal, thermal gradient. Energy transformations. Coal preparation and processing. Briquetting, drying, destilation, gasification of coal. Oil and gas preparation and processing. Secondary energy. Electricity generation. Thermal power plants. CHP. Advanced technologies for electricity generation.Heat generation. Energy balance. Final energy consumption. Energetics and environment. Principles of the sustainable development. Energy saving. More rational use in different sectors (industry, households, public and commercial, transport, agriculture). Effects of energy savings in energy balances. Energy potentials of primary energy in Serbia. Historical and projections of future energy development in Serbia.

Practical teaching
Preparation and presentation of seminar papers and discussions on the topics given in the lectures.
