Design and Optimization of Energy systems

Course Description

IThe goal of the Course is to present and apply techniques for the modelling and the thermo-economic optimisation of industrial process and energy systems. The lecture covers the problem statement, the solving methods for the simulation and the single and multi-objective optimisation problems.

Course Objective

Introduction to system design - Regression analysis and curve fitting - modeling of thermal equipment (very brief) - system simulation (successive substitution - Newton - Raphson method) - examples - economic analysis - optimization - Lagrange multipliers, search methods, linear programming, geometric programming- New generation optimization techniques - simulated annealing, Genetic Algorithms, Bayesian statistics.
