DESCRIPTION - summary of the module content
AIMS - intentions of the module
A practical introductory course in computer software used in the design of power conversion plant and machines. The basic aim of this module is to equip students with a basic appreciation and elementary capability of three advanced computer modelling and simulation design tools. It will not be possible to cover all the features and all of the capabilities of each of the tools that feature in the module. Rather, students receive instruction in the use of the software is tackling a rather specific design problem: that of modelling the effect of including a heat recovery system on within a fairly typical domestic property that has double glazing and cavity wall insulation.
