The Institute of Thermal Power & Dynamic Control Engineering for Power Plants was established in 1955. It was granted to offer Master degree and Ph. D degree by the State Council in 1986 and 1993, respectively. The institute has one primary discipline on Power Engineering and Engineering Thermophysics as well as one secondary discipline on Thermal Engineering. After 50-years construction, the institute now has a teaching and multidiscipline scientific research group with a sound age structure. The institute now has 4 professors, including 1 professor awarded by National Science Found for Distinguished Young Scholars and 2 professors awarded by New Century Excellent Talents in University, 4 associate professors with doctor degrees, 2 lecturers and 4 technicians.
The major discipline of the institute is thermal power system energy saving and process control, and the main research areas are: energy-saving and economic diagnosis theory of thermodynamic system in thermal power plant, dynamic simulation for thermodynamic system, poly-generation system for supply heat, electricity, refrigeration and water, , pre-dried lignite-fired power system, pressure lift and liquid level control technology of supersonic steam-water two-phase flow, Marangoni condensation mechanisms and heat transfer characteristic of binary mixtures, flash evaporation for salt water, thermoacoustic engines, etc.
In recent five years, 8 China NSF projects, 1 National 863 Project, 1 National 973 Project, 1 project of state technology supporting plan, 2 Ph.D. Programs Foundation of Ministry of Education of China projects and other industrial joint projects have been successfully applied and granted. The total funding reaches 20 milion Yuan. More than 120 papers (including 100 papers indexed by EI/SCI) have been published. Twenty five patents have been applied and twenty patents have been granted. 1 second prize of national scientific and technological progress, 3 prizes of province scientific and technological progress, 1 Excellence Award of National Invention Award and 1 Golden prize of National Exhibition of Inventions have been awarded to the members of the institute. 1 national standard has been drafted by the members of the institute.
