This is a basic course on energy systems. The lessons that will be carried out by the teachers will start from the definition of basic concepts from the thermodynamic instruments, to special attention on the main systems for electric energy generation.
The course purpose is to provide students with technical and methodological instruments for analysis, control and management of energy systems, analyzing their behaviour at design and off-design conditions, including dynamic aspects and their impact at both local and global level.
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 fossil fuels and renewable sources;
- know basic concepts and performance parameters of energy systems (efficiencies, useful work, emissions, etc.);
- know the typologies of the main energy systems and their applicative details;
- apply the thermodynamic concepts to the performance calculations;
- know the main technoeconomic aspects of the energy systems;
- identify and analyse the main plant components;
- know the main regulation mechanisms.
Basic knowledge of thermodynamics: I and II principles, internal energy, enthalpy and entropy functions, perfect gas concept, basic transformations.
The course is composed of: classroom lessons (48 hours) and exercises (12 hours). The exercise hours will be carried out by the teachers with the following approach: summary introduction on the contents related to the classroom lessons and development of exercises (on the blackboard).
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 successful exam preparation.
Students not attending the lessons (although the active participation at the lessons is strongly recommended) are suggested to use the aul@web teaching material. In case of doubts on these documents, please contact the teachers by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
The following books are suggested as support (the exam can be successfully passed without reading these books):
MARIO LUIGI FERRARI (President)
ALESSANDRO SORCE (President Substitute)
All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
The exam is composed of an oral test on all the topics presented and discussed during the course (exercises included).
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 for the undergraduate course. So, these students can contact the teachers by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) to fix a possible exceptional exam day.
To participate at this oral test, it is necessary to do the registration (at least 2 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 energy systems 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.

Students with specific needs (for instance Specific Learning Disorders) are invited to contact the teachers by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) at least 5 days before the exam. For instance, students with learning disorders ("disturbi specifici di apprendimento", DSA) will be allowed to use specific modalities and supports that will be determined on a case-by-case basis in agreement with the delegate of the Engineering courses in the Committee for the Inclusion of Students with Disabilities.
