Energy technologies in process industry

Individual course

NB! You can find this course on the application form under the study programme Åbo Akademi FITech-Tku courses 3/2021 and choosing the right course from the drop down menu.

The course starts with a brief overview of the energy market and recent trends in the energy sector. In the course, we study different power and heat generation techniques with a focus on energy solutions for the process industry. The steam cycle in power plants is analyzed in detail, and we examine techniques for increasing the overall efficiency of power plants. Other techniques for power generation, such as gas turbines and diesel engines, are also examined. Energy efficiency issues are also a focus and for this task, Pinch analysis will be introduced.

After completing the course is the student expected to be able to independently analyse, formulate and solve questions related to energy technology within the process industry.
