Energy efficiency in power generation and refrigeration

when 3 January 2017 - 27 January 2017
language French
duration 4 weeks
credits 5 ECTS
fee EUR 1850

The course will cover the following topics: power generation and refrigeration, actual status and perspectives; efficient use of primary energy sources; methods to estimate energy efficiency and methods to improve energy efficiency; sustainable energy supply.

The exergy analysis, which is a modern tool of applied thermodynamics, will be presented in detail (theory and applications).

Participants will have the opportunity to work in a group project: identifying the efficiency of various power generation and refrigeration systems and exploring possibilities to improve it.

This topic will address new innovative scientific and practical approaches that are of interest to energy-related industries, including consulting companies.
