Modelling And Analysis Of Energy Systems

COURSE CODE: RET7213
COURSE CREDIT UNIT: 4
ACADEMIC PROGRAMME: Physics, M.Sc
COLLEGE/SCHOOL/FACULTY: School of Natural and Applied Sciences
STATUS: Elective
PROGRAMME TYPE: Postgraduate

Course Description

The purpose of this course is to provide students with fundamental knowledge and relevant skills for energy system performance analysis, modelling and monitoring. Students taking this course will develop a competency in using these techniques for energy system performance assessment, understanding losses, diagnostics and forecasting for renewable energy and building systems. There is a focus on the use of statistical techniques and handling large data sets. Students will apply these techniques to real systems.

COURSE JUSTIFICATION/RATIONALE

This course aims to give an introduction to effective modelling methods applicable for assessing the dynamic behaviours of complex systems for energy supply and conversion. Topics covered include modelling and systems simulation, optimisation techniques, energy- economy models, applications and case studies.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the end of this course, the student should be able to:

Determine mass and energy balances for the systems enable to perform enthalpy

Calculate size, performance and cost of energy equipment turns modeling and simulation techniques and to optimize the energy system.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

A student completing the course is expected to:

Carry simulation and Modelling of typical energy system

Analyse effect of constraints on the performance of energy systems

Design HEN network and perform Energy-Economic Analysis for a typical applications
