4EC10 - Dynamics of Energy Systems
Many thermal systems and processes in practice are essentially unsteady and/or nonlinear. Examples of great relevance include sustainable energy systems as e.g. solar power plants and photo-voltaic thermal collectors, thermal comfort in humans and the built environment, thermal-management schemes for micro-electronics and transient behavior of turbomachinery and power plants. This course addresses the modelling, simulation and dynamic analysis of such systems.
