Modern Methods of Air Depuration in IndustryCourse code: 180517 | 6 ECTS credits
Level of Studies:Undergraduate applied studies
Year of Study:2
Requirements:Knowledge from the basis of electroenergetics and new energy technologies.
Goal:Acquiring basic knowledge about the role and significance of electric power devices (EPD) applied in ecology. Study of EPD as a means for removing air pollution in industry, electrical power industry, studying advanced air quality management techniques.
Outcome:Students will be trained to understand the basic principles of air purification, the working methods of the EPD used in this area for the elimination of air pollution, in order to meet the emission limit values in industrial plants.
Contents of the course
Introductory lecture; Basic concepts of sources of industrial air pollution (thermal power plants, cement plants, heating plants), global and domestic emission limit values (ELV).
The negative effect of the sources of air-pollution on the ecosystem, basic techniques and the ways to reduce air-pollution.
Bio-ionisers as an air purifier.
Electrostatic methods and their applications in the reduction of air pollution (electrostatic precipitator).
The role of electric power supplies in air purification systems (basic principles and topology).
The basic principles of operation of the electric power plants for air purification (separation of solids, desulphurization, denitrification, removal of mercury and heavy metals).
Ways and methods for depositing isolated solids from the air.
Ways and methods of using secondary products of desulphurization and denitrification .
Sensors and measuring methods used in air purification systems.
Basic principles of monitoring and control of emissions of aero-pollutants.
Application of information technologies in air purification systems in industry and electric power industry.
Modern methods of "ON-Line" monitoring of emissions and data acquisition.
Trends in the future development of electric power plants for air purification - possibility of realization of thermal power plants and heating plants without chimney.
Practical classes are organized through auditory exercises and seminar work. Practical classes are fully followed by a lecture program. A part of practical lessons is foreseen through the visit to the electric power plants for purification of waste gases at thermal power plants.
