Intended learning outcomes

This course is meant to give an insight in the field of energy technology. After finished course the student should be able to:

  • Explain different expressions and parameters, which define different parts in the field of energy technology
  • Explain the principles of the different methods of energy conversion and be able to place these into typical contexts
  • Name the different main components for some of the energy conversion methods and shortly explain the function of each component

Course main content

The course is an overview course and therefore it consists of many different parts that all are connected to the subject energy technology. By way of introduction, a number of important concepts from the thermodynamics are repeated, where different energy conversion processes, among other things, are brought up. Further the resources that exist for energy production are illuminated, both in Sweden and internationally, and which are the needs in the society. The environmental consequences of energy conversion, which laws and conventions control the pollution and how it is possible technically to limit the emissions, will be discussed. Finally some future perspectives will be given and alternative methods that can be used to improve the environmental values.
