Advanced process thermodynamics

Individual course

NB! You can find this course on the Degree students’ application form under the study programme Åbo Akademi FITech-Tku courses 4/2021 and under Åbo Akademi FITech-ES courses 4/2021 on the Adult learners’ application form. Choose the right course from the dropdown menu.

The aim of the course is to present several important new concepts of energy technology and energy efficiency in (chemical) process engineering, for example exergy analysis, energy storage, thermal radiation and solar energy.

The student will obtain knowledge and skills with more modern concepts of advanced thermodynamics, from a viewpoint of more sustainable energy technology and more energy efficient (chemical) process engineering.

Topics:

  1. Exergy analysis
  2. Heat radiation
  3. Solar energy (PV, thermal)
  4. Separation process thermodynamics
  5. Irreversible thermodynamics
  6. Energy storage
  7. Exercises

Learning outcomes:

To present several important new concepts of energy technology and energy efficiency in (chemical) process engineering, for example exergy analysis, energy use of separation processes, energy storage, thermal radiation and solar energy.
