AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of the course is to provide students with a detailed knowledge of the operating principles and system lay-out of power plants for energy conversion, such as gas turbine systems, steam power plant and combined cycles. Moreover, the course will give the basis for the plant performances calculation, system behaviour understanding and plant management knowledge, with particular regard to the current national and international energy scenario.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Knowledge of the behavior of innovative  plants and the effect on the performance of real operating conditions.

Ability to analyze the advantages and criticalities of systems with a reduced environmental footprint.

Ability to analyze the techno-economic performance of the energy systems presented and to detfine the parameters of influence.

 

TEACHING METHODS

Frontal lectures with practice exercises.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

- Energy sources and consumption at national and worldwide level.
- Gas turbine power plants: Ideal and real behaviour and performances, operating parameters, plant management and control, off-design and transient operating conditions, solutions for plant efficiency enhancing.
- Combined Cycles: System description and motivations, performances and management.
-Innovative solutions for efficient and environmental-friendly energy conversions: STIG, ORC, SCO2

- Carbon Capture and Storage

- Hydrogen and Power to Fuel technologies
