Design of Energy Systems

Code

ME-DES1

Version

2.0

Offered by

Mechanical Engineering

ECTS

5

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge of Thermodynamics

Main purpose

The student will obtain knowledge and calculation practice of refrigeration and heat pump systems in order to be able to design an efficient, environmentally friendly energy plant.

Knowledge

The student will acquire knowledge in,

* Refrigeration plants
* Heat pumps
* Refrigerants
* Energy efficiency and impact on the environment
* Cooling load
* Air conditioning processes

Skills

The student will be able to analyse the thermal load for an energy plant and on this basis combine process theory and common dimensioning practice to design an energy efficient cooling plant or heat pump with low environmental impact.

Competences

The student will obtain competences to communicate about designs of different types of energy plants. Fur-thermore, the student will be able to design simple energy plants in a methodical way and more complex systems in co-operation with energy engineers.

Topics

 

Teaching methods and study activities

The workload for student is expected to be 138 hours. There will be 3 lessons per week in 12 weeks.
The teacher will go over the course topics in the classroom, combining theory with exercises and blackboard teaching as well as PowerPoint presentations.
The student is expected to read the detailed literature and to solve compulsory assignments between lessons.
