Turbomachines hold a central position in power engineering. The course aims at providing an understanding of the machines principles, construction and control. Further the course should give an understanding of thermo and fluid dynamic processes occurring in the interaction between the machine and the working media. The course should also give an understanding of the simpler design methods and, at a more superficial level, the more complicated.
