Thermodynamics is the first of four courses required in the energy conversion area. This course focuses on the understanding and application of the first and second law of thermodynamics to the analysis of basic macroscopic thermodynamic systems. Thus, it deals with the study of the various energy forms and its transference through the system boundaries in the forms of heat and work. Additionally, pure substances are studied and closed and open systems are analyzed. The course is complemented with the study of the Otto, Diesel, and Brayton power cycles.
