Degree Programme in Energy Engineering
After completing this course, you will be able to
* derive for dynamic phenomena differential equation models based on first principles
* design and realize process experiments, analyze them and create continuous and discrete models based on sampled data
* present the arrangement and realization of multivariable control methods used in energy production and other process industries
* apply simulation and design program tools to the description of process systems.
How would you create dynamic flow balance and heat balances of a flow-through tank using differential equations for Matlab Simulink simulations
How would you realize a process experiment of a heat exchanger and work out a time-series model based on sampled data and describing heat content, using Matlab Identification Toolbox?
Why could fuzzy logic or modelpredictive control improve the quality of products or the energy efficiency of a process plant?
Why is Matlab Simulink very widely used as a basic modelling and simulation tool, and how are you able to utilize Matlab in simulations of processes?
