Will learn about basics of Condenser
Will be able to learn the components of Condenser
To study the Types of condenser
Merits and Demerits of Condenser


  • Mechanical Engineering subject experience is essential particularly knowledge of Power Plant Engineering is required.


Unit 2: Steam Condenser  of Thermal Power  Plant

A) Steam Condenser : Necessity of steam condenser, elements of steam condensing plant, classification, cooling water requirements, condenser efficiency, vacuum efficiency (Numerical Treatment), cooling towers, air leakage and its effects on condenser performance, air pumps (Numerical Treatment for Air Pump capacity)

The said course is a part of Energy Engineering subject.  What is a condenser and its roll in thermal power plant has been described in detail in two video lectures. And numericals based on condenser and air pump is explained in other two video lectures. In order to support the video lectures, resource files are also attached so that learners will be able to get clear understanding of Condenser and they can write and also be confident to solve the problems on condenser and air pumps.

In this course we are dealing with Unit- 2 Part-A of Syllabus described in promo video lecture. Video lectures are uploaded as per availability and also as per Udemy free course structure. I will upload other video lectures after getting ready. Here again requesting to give feed back on the course so as to get idea about uploading remaining videos.

Objectives of the course

To get conversant with working of condenser , types, merits and demerits, sources of air leakages and their effects on performance of condenser. Efforts to reduce air ingress in the condenser. Tpys of Air pumps and numericals on condenser and air pumps are discussed in the said course.

Who this course is for:

  • The course is intended for Third year / final Year Mechanical Engineering Students
  • BE Mech and TE Mechanical Students and also Diploma Mechanical Students
