Modelling and optimization of energy systems

The goal of the lecture “Modelling and optimization of energy systems” is to present and apply techniques for the modelling and the thermo-economic optimisation of industrial process and energy systems. The lecture covers the problem statement, the solving methods for the simulation and the single and multi-objective optimisation problems.



  • Process systems engineering
  • Process simulation
  • Thermo-economic evaluation
  • Optimization
  • Data reconciliation

The course is organised in theoretical lectures and in a team project in which a thermo-economic of a process has to made. Useful information about the software to be used in the project are found on the course wiki page.

The course material can be downloaded from the moodle website.

Video records of the course are found here.
