  • This template can be used as a starter file to give updates for project milestones.SectionsRight-click on a slide to add sections. Sections can help to organize your slides or facilitate collaboration between multiple authors.NotesUse the Notes section for delivery notes or to provide additional details for the audience. View these notes in Presentation View during your presentation. Keep in mind the font size (important for accessibility, visibility, videotaping, and online production)Coordinated colors Pay particular attention to the graphs, charts, and text boxes.Consider that attendees will print in black and white or grayscale. Run a test print to make sure your colors work when printed in pure black and white and grayscale.Graphics, tables, and graphsKeep it simple: If possible, use consistent, non-distracting styles and colors.Label all graphs and tables.
  • What is the project about?Define the goal of this projectIs it similar to projects in the past or is it a new effort?Define the scope of this projectIs it an independent project or is it related to other projects?* Note that this slide is not necessary for weekly status meetings
  • * If any of these issues caused a schedule delay or need to be discussed further, include details in next slide.
  • Duplicate this slide as necessary if there is more than one issue.This and related slides can be moved to the appendix or hidden if necessary.
  • The following slides show several examples of timelines using SmartArt graphics.Include a timeline for the project, clearly marking milestones, important dates, and highlight where the project is now.
  • Unit 4 introduction to fuels and combustion

    1. 1. Unit-4: Fuels & Combustion Mr. Santosh Damkondwar Monday, January 20, 2014
    2. 2. Introduction • Fuels • Non-renewable Conventional Sources • In Mechanical, Electrical & Chemical operations.
    3. 3. Characteristics of Good Fuels: • • • • • • • • • High Calorific Values Moderate Ignition Temperature Low Moisture Content Low Ash Content Moderate Velocity of Combustion Should not produce harmful products Low Cost Easy Storage & Transportation Easily Controllable
    4. 4. Classification • Natural or Primary Fuels Solid e.g. Wood, Peat, Lignite, Bituminous Coal, Dung Liquid e.g. Crude Oil, Vegetable Oil Gaseous e.g. Natural Gas
    5. 5. Classification Solid e.g. Coke, Charcoal, Liquid e.g. Tar, Kerosene, Diesel, Petrol, Gaseous e.g. Coal Gas, Water Gas, Bio-Gas
    6. 6. Calorific Values: • Calorific Value of fuel is the total quantity of heat liberated by complete combustion of a unit mass (or volume) of the fuel. • It can be expressed for Solid Fuels in terms of : Cal/gm (CGS Unit) Kcal/Kg (MKS Unit) J/Kg (SI Unit) B.Th.U. / lb (British Thermal Unit)
    7. 7. Calorific Values
    8. 8. Calorific Values: • Calorific Value of fuel is the total quantity of heat liberated by complete combustion of a unit mass (or volume) of the fuel. • It can be expressed for Gaseous Fuels in terms of : Cal/lit (CGS Unit) Kcal/m3 (MKS Unit) J/m3 (SI Unit) B.Th.U. / Ft3 (British Thermal Unit)
    9. 9. Calorific Values
    10. 10. Calorific Values
    11. 11. Calorific Values
    12. 12. Higher Calorific Values: • It is the total amount of heat liberated, when unit mass / volume of the fuel is burnt completely and the products of combustion have been cooled to room temperature (i.e. 15oC).
    13. 13. Lower Calorific Values: • It is the net amount of heat liberated, when unit mass / volume of the fuel is burnt completely and the products of combustion are allowed to escape.
    14. 14. Relation between GCV & LCV: • These can be related as: NCV = GCV – Latent heat of water vapor formed or = GCV – (Mass of Hydrogen × Latent heat of steam) = GCV – [(9 × Mass of hydrogen) × Latent heat of steam] If mass of hydrogen is expressed as % of H, then NCV = GCV – [9× H/100 × 587] cal/gm
    15. 15. Determination of Calorific Value: • Calorific Value of the fuel is determined by heating known amount of fuel, in presence of oxygen in calorimeter. • Principle o Total heat liberated by complete combustion of known amount of fuel is absorbed by the known mass of water in calorimeter. From the rise in temperature of water, the calorific value of fuel is determined.
