Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Intended learning outcomes

The overall aim is to provide understanding of the modeling of technical energy systems with a focus on local and regional energy systems. MODEST optimization program is used as tool in the course. After completing the course the student should be able to:

  • Modeling a municipal energy system.
  • Reflect on the input data used for modeling of energy systems.
  • Understand and use MODEST.
  • Understand how the energy systems affected by changes in key parameters.
  • Analyze and evaluate results from the modeling of energy systems.

    Course content

    Computer-based laboratory work. How to satisfy the municipality's district heating demand with the least possible system cost? Need for investment in various types of energy plants and the design of these from an energy system perspective? Impact of energy prices, sensitivity analysis, economic profitability and environmental impact.

    Teaching and working methods

    The course is given in the form of lectures, tutorials and laboratory work.
