Industrial/PhD Course: Modelling and Optimization of Thermal Systems

Time

30.04.2018 kl. 08.30 - 01.05.2018 kl. 16.00

Description

Organiser

Mads Pagh Nielsen

Lecturers

Mads Pagh Nielsen
Thomas Helmer Pedersen

ECTS: 2
 

Description

The focus of this course will be the modelling and optimization of thermal energy systems including:

  • Methods for modelling of thermal and calorimetric properties
  • Formulation and solution of thermal system models considering partial load
  • Parametric optimization of thermal systems
  • Topology optimization of thermal systems (for instance the optimization of heat exchanger networks)

Examples will be given mainly in the Energy Technology area in terms of journals – but most of it has a generic structure in terms of peer review process.

Prerequisites

A general background with a M.Sc. in mechanical engineering with a thermal system or thermos-fluid background or a background with a M.Sc. within chemical process engineering.

Form of evaluation

Written evaluation. The participants have to hand in the solution to a minor assignment and will be evaluated passed-not passed based on this.
