Intended learning outcomes

After the completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Apply energy network optimization for heat and power production based on energy market price and regulation signals
  • Apply energy network optimization and operation with respect to heating grid demands
  • Evaluate heat and power production optimization for a relevant heat and power production test case representing a city or region with BOFIT
  • Evaluate heating grid operation optimization for a relevant heat and power production test case representing a city or region with TERMIS
  • Analyse the impact of market drivers on operation and optimization of heat and power grids in the future

Course main content

The course is an advanced 2nd level course in sustainable energy engineering, with special focus on real heat and power production network operation and optimization. The course is a collaboration with our industrial partners FORTUM and VATTENFALL who perform these studies on daily basis. Advanced state-of-the-art simlation tools are introduced in the course and applied on relevant test cases of heat and power production optimization and heating grid operation in cities and regions of Sweden.

 The course consist of a few key lectures, with student-centered seminars carrying the bulk of the learning process in discussing and analyzing. A project is introduced in the beginning of the course, and follows the course period throughout. Through the projects, the tools mentioned above are practiced on real cases, such that upon completion of the project, the course objectives are reached.

The course will be examined based on a report and presentation of the project work carried out in the course.
