Engineering thermodynamics

In thermodynamics, engineering thermodynamics is the study of thermodynamics with focus on practical applications often encountered in engineering, such as using data, together with basic ideas on energy conservation and entropy production, to analyze the behaviors of complex technological systems (e.g. power stations) or systems through which matter is flowing, to optimize desired objectives, such as energy conversion efficiency. [1] Engineering thermodynamics is one of the core subjects in the field of mechanical engineering.
