Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course is given by lectures, exercises and project work and is based on both independent work and work in small groups. In the course, three tasks/projects should be completed:

  1. A simple dynamic model of a building's energy use is developed in a group and reported through a group report and presentation.
  2. A simple model of integration of solar cells into electricity grids is developed to determine how much electricity can be fed into a certain grid as well as analysis of what happens when a cloud moves over the area. The report is presented through a group report and presentation.
  3. A model of cogeneration production for a part of a city is developed to optimize the production of electricity and heat. The result is reported through a group report and presentation.

Intended learning outcomes

After the course, the student should be able to:

  1. Describe and analyse dynamic simulation and modelling of the energy use of a building
  2. Describe and analyse simulation and modelling of integration of solar cells in the electricity grid as well as analysis of what happens when a cloud covers the area
  3. Describe and analyse simulation and modelling of combined heat and power production (CHP) in part of a city and optimisation of electricity and heating

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
