The course provides an overview of the main technical and economic issues connected with the fossil fuel and renewable energy conversion and consumption. The main thermodynamic concept necessary to the basic understanding of energy conversion will be introduced, then the main traditional and renewable technologies for electric and thermal energy conversion will be presented. Furthermore, techniques for analysing energy consumption and the main methodologies for analysing energy investments will be introduced.
The aim of the course is to propose a general understanding of:
On the successful completion of the course the student will be able to:
Apply the basic laws of thermodynamics
Describe the fundamental principles of energy conversion
Understand the introductory concepts related to renewable energy
Develop methodologies for the techno-economic analysis of thermal and energy systems
Knowledge and understanding of the main indexes for investment valuations (i.e., NPV, IRR, PBP)
The main teaching methods will be frontal lectures and practical sessions including the utilization of PC with particular reference to MS- Excel. Frontal lectures will serve for introducing the topics and illustrate the main theoretical concepts useful for understanding the subject. Practical sessions will serve to illustrate, develop, and discuss real, multidisciplinary case studies.
The course is articulated in the following four macro-areas:
Teaching aids provided by the lecturers
V. Bianco - Analysis of Energy Systems. Management, Planning, and Policy. CRC Press
Office hours: By appointment (by arrangement with the lecturer).
VINCENZO BIANCO (President)
GUGLIELMO LOMONACO (President)
FEDERICO SCARPA (President)
All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
Oral discussion with possible presentation of a project
The oral examination will focus on the assessment of the level of achieved knowledge of the learning outcomes with specific reference to the application of the basic knowledge of thermodynamics, the description of the fundamentals of energy conversion, the understanding of the main concepts related to renewable energy, and the development of techno-economic analyses related to energy systems.
