This course introduces students to low-temperature engineering via the design and analysis of cryogenic systems. It includes the physics and engineering principals of cryogenic materials and fluids with emphasis on liquid natural gas technology, rectification system design, and instrumentation. This course is offered in collaboration with New Fortress Energy and is particularly useful to electronics, electrical, mechanical and chemical engineering students who will be involved in the design of cryogenic systems and their uses in modern day electrical power systems. Computer simulation exercises, field trips to LNG storage and gasification facilities and to natural gas electrical power plants are integral components of this course.
