Industrial/PhD Course: Modelling and Optimization of Thermal Energy Systems


03.06.2021 kl. 08.30 - 04.06.2021 kl. 16.30



Associate Professor Mads Pagh Nielsen, – Aalborg University 


Associate Professor Mads Pagh Nielsen – Aalborg University 
Assistant Professor Thomas Helmer Pedersen – Aalborg University 

ECTS:  2 


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. 


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. 


6000 DKK for PhD students outside of Denmark and 8000 DKK for the Industry.
