Advanced Energetics

Teaching assistant coaching students in several lectures
Advanced Energetics , where the student's mission is to optimise thermoeconomically industrial processes
Methods for the rational use and conversion of energy in industrial processes : how to analyse the energy usage, calculate the heat recovery by pinch analysis, define heat exchanger network, integrate heat pumps and cogeneration units and realise exergy analysis of energy conversion systems.

Modelling and Optimization of Energy systems, where students are familiarized with the modelling of energy systems through the example of the EPFL heating system.
The goal of the lecture is to present and apply techniques for the modelling and the thermo-economic optimisation of industrial process and energy systems. The lecture covers the problem statement, the solving methods for the simulation and the single and multi-objective optimisation problems.

Student supervision

Supervision of several semester and master projects.
Available projects can be found here. If no topic suits well, it is possible to determine a subject (please contact by mail).
