PRESENTAZIONE

This course is relevant to Power Systems engineering, in light of the industrial revolution towards a low fossil fuel society.

The technical & economic management of new power systems relying on renewables, storage units and low emissions fossil fuel trigeneration sources is a fundamental skill of an Energy Engineer interested to devolp her/his future career in the industrial or institutional sectors or as a freelance working on Sustainable Energy issues.

OBIETTIVI E CONTENUTI

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI

The course is designed to provide theoretical and methodological skills for the economic analyses related to the development of projects in the sustainable energy sector. In this context, it encompasses the fundamentals of energy markets, the procedures to calculate high efficiency cogeneration and the levelized cost of electricity. A special focus is devoted to new power production and distribution infrastructures such as smart grids and smart microgrids, with specific insight concerning with energy management platforms.

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI (DETTAGLIO) E RISULTATI DI APPRENDIMENTO

To analyse the structure of the electric power system, with emphasis on production, transmission and distribution of electricity. To analyse the operation of electricity markets and the policies aiming to incentivize renewable power plants.

To solve exercises on electricity markets, high performance cogeneration and trigeneration. To define business plan analyses for distributed power plants and microgrids. To calculated levelized cost of electricity for different generation technologies.

MODALITA' DIDATTICHE

Theoretical lectures accompanied by exercises on specific case studies to be solved in order to apply the learnt methodologies.

ESAMI

MODALITA' D'ESAME

Students must take a written examination consisting of numerical exercises. The oral examination is optional for students who wish to improve their grade in the written examination.

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

MODALITA' DI ACCERTAMENTO

The assessment strategy is based firstly on the continuous interaction with all the students attending the lessons, especially during the resolution of practical case studies, then it is quantitatively carried out by means of the evaluation of the student during the written and oral examinations.
