The aim of the course is to provide the knowledge for the design of advanced solar systems, but also to manage, realize and verify them.
Understand how performance and performance can be verified through the development and improvement of modeling and control methods.
Achieve adequate preparation to develop systems and deepen further research knowledge and skills.
CA3: Ability of designing, analyze, plan and manage energy conversion systems and their environmental impact, as well as complex and/or innovative service and process systems.
CA7: Analyze, design and manage innovative integrated renewable energy systems, sustainability, environmental and economic impact
CA8: Ability of analyzing plants, components and process technologies and methods of engineering and their economic implications
CC1: In-depth knowledge in the field of energy and electricity
CC4: In-depth study of applied thermodynamics, thermoeconomics, environmental sustainability of plants, machinery, components and systems for the production and conversion of energy. Methodologies for the identification of thermodynamic and economic inefficiencies of energy systems and components. Environmental and economic sustainability.
CC8: Renewable energy resources, low environmental impact technologies: characteristics and availability, proven and innovative exploitation technologies, energy sustainability, economic and environmental sustainability.
basics on renewable energy.
the course is mainly dealt with through lectures, leaving a little space for a laboratory experience to better understand the various components of the systems as well as the use of advanced systems and solutions.
the student will have to demonstrate to be able to apply concepts, methods and models covered during the lessons aimed at verifying the performance of the components. He will then have to demonstrate through the laboratory activities to have acquired a good knowledge of the course topics as well as mastery in dealing with non-standard problems. The idea is to guarantee the student not only a wealth of up-to-date and professionally useful knowledge, but also a method to approach the problem of checks
Type of Assessment
An applicative LAB-activity is required that foresees the execution of a measurement experience in the laboratory or of interpretation of measures and related elaboration to be carried out normally in groups. The use of advanced instrumentation, interpretation of results and development of instrument components is envisaged.
The elaborate is the subject of discussion during a final oral examination which is divided into the following parts:
1) presentation and discussion of the artist (ten to fifteen minutes)
2) Next oral exam 25-30 minutes (two "theoretical" questions taken from the program, not in the same field of laboratory activities carried out)
The total duration of the oral exam is about 40-45 minutes
