Combustion and/or Process Systems

2018/2019

Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module is based on knowledge achieved when studying the 1st semester on the Master of Science in Sustainable Energy Engineering with specialisation in Process Engineering and Combustion Technology or similar.

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Have knowledge and understanding within process and/or combustion systems, their components and the interaction between these
  • Have knowledge about the design, modelling and optimisation of the individual components comprising process and/or combustion systems
  • Have knowledge and comprehension within the multiphase and chemical reaction aspects involved in process and/or combustion systems

Skills

  • Be able to judge the usefulness of different scientific methods used for the analysis, modelling and simulation of process and/or combustion systems
  • Be able to verify the analytical and numerical approaches by means of experimental data
  • Be able to manage the problem based work and development process within the project theme
  • Be able to independently define and analyse scientific problems within the topic of process and/or combustion and to propose and develop solutions for the present problem
  • Be able to independently continue own development in competence and specialisation

Type of instruction

Problem based project oriented project work in groups. The project should be based on a combustion or process system which involves aspects of either multiphase flow and/or chemical reactions. The project should involve simulation of a combustion or process system or part thereof. Tools such as numerical optimisation, Computational Fluid Dynamics, process simulation or similar should by applied. The project could be based on a steady state process, operational variations or transient problems arising from start-up and shut down of combustion and/or process facilities. The results obtained from analysis, modelling or simulations should be attempted to be verified by laboratory experiments or existing process data from a plant.



Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 15 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 450 hours for the student
