Problem based project oriented project work in groups. The project should be based upon a thermal power plant or upon a fuel conversion process plant. The thermal plant could be a combined heat and power plant, a de-centralised power plant or a cooling plant. The plants should be simulated to achieve an optimum plant design in terms of overall plant economy. In the design of the plant analytical tools are to be applied, such as numerical optimisation, non-linear dynamical modelling or process integration. In addition the plant designed should be evaluated in relation to operational variations and/or the problems arising from start-up.
Since it is a 15 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 450 hours for the student
