Advanced process thermodynamics

Individual course

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.
