Annotation This course covers the basic aspects of experimental planning and provides an overview of different simulation tools for process simulation in energy and environmental engineering. The course is then centered on simulation of dynamic energy systems using TRNSYS computer tool..
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
The aim of the course is to give students and insight in experimental planning and knowledge of dynamic simulation techniques and information on different simulation tools and their advantages and disadvantages. Specific attention is paid for to give student knowledge of the dynamic simulation tool TRNSYS and transfer experience using TRNSYS to simulate different types of systems and buildings.
Learning outcomes
and assessment
The student will acquire the capability to planning methodologies and to the process of experimental planning. - Examination: Home works, exam, course work. Assessment criteria: the student is able to develop a details plan adapted to the specific experimental situation.
The student will be able to select appropriate simulation tools for a given field of application. - Examination: Home works, lab./pract.works, exam, course work. Criteria: Given a certain application thea proper tool will be selected based on a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the problem.
The student will be able to build up complex TRNSYS models for energy and environmental engineering, including the possibility to develop new components for advance simulation and research studies. - Examination: Home works, lab./pract.works, exam, course work. Criteria: Student is able to compile the system in TRNSYS selecting and program new components to be used in TRNSYS environment.
Course prerequisites Mathematic, physic, information technologies, thermal engineering and energy systems, basics knowledge on the analysis of dynamic systems and systems simulation.
