|SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINARY SECTOR||ING-IND/09|
|MODULES||This unit is a module of:|
This course (completely in English) shows the fundamental know-how of fuel cells and distributed generation systems (thermodynamics and component performance): different typologies, layouts, technological and environmental aspects. Different small size systems are considered for distributed generation applications. Special attention is devoted to combined heat and power generation including laboratory experiences.
The purpose of this course is to provide the students with the fundamental know-how related to fuel cells and to the concept of distributed generation systems. The attention is mainly focused on thermodynamic theory and component performance. Fuel cells are presented putting emphasis on different technology types, hybrid system plant layouts, technological and environmental aspects. This course also proposes to provide students with basic knowledge and operative elements to design different small size systems (internal combustion engines, microturbines, stirling engines, fuel cells) for applications in distributed generation grids. For this part of the course, special attention is devoted to combined heat and power generation providing students with laboratory experiences.
The attendance and active participation at the proposed teaching activities (lessons and exercises) and the individual study will allow the student to:
- know the basic aspects related to different fuel cell types (performance and operative issues);
- know the characteristics of hybrid systems (plant solutions, performance, etc.);
- know the aspects related to simulation and control of fuel cell based systems;
- understand the distributed generation systems;
- understand the distributed generation systems with co-generation and/or trigeneration;
- apply the thermodynamic concepts to the performance calculations;
- identify and analyse the main plant components.
The course is composed of: 54 hours including classroom lessons, exercises and laboratory visits. The exercise hours will be carried out by the teacher with the following approach: summary introduction on the contents related to the classroom lessons and development of exercises. 1 seminar will be included considering external teachers.
All the slides used during the lessons and other teaching materials will be available on aul@web. In general, lesson notes and the aul@web teaching materials are enough for the exam preparation.
The following books are suggested as support:
MARIO LUIGI FERRARI (President)
DARIO BARSI (President Substitute)
PIETRO ZUNINO (President Substitute)
The exam is composed of an oral test on all the topics presented and discussed during the course (exercises excluded).
2/3 exam days will be available in the winter session and 3/4 for the summer session (verify on the web tool https://servizionline.unige.it/studenti/esami/prenotazione). No additional exam days will be carried out, except for the students that terminated their lessons. So, these students can contact the teacher by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) to fix a possible exceptional exam day.
To participate at this oral test, it is necessary to do the registration (at least 5 days in advance) on the web tool https://servizionline.unige.it/studenti/esami/prenotazione.
The exam will be carried out with oral questions that can be supported by writing (on the blackboard or a paper sheet).
The details on the exam preparation and on the analysis of each topic will be provided during the lessons.
The exam will evaluate not only the student's knowledge, but also the analysis capability of problems on fuel cell based systems and distributed generation and the presentation with a right terminology. The student can be asked to design plant schemes, to analyse the system behaviour on the main thermodynamic planes, and to carry out design calculation in agreement with what presented during the lessons.
