The course deals with theoretical and practical aspects connected to plant design for different types of bioenergy plants for power generation and combined heat and power (CHP) generation. Modeling of plant subcomponents and complete plants will be carried out using engineering modeling tools. The plant (energy) models will be coupled to cost analysis, GHG analysis and sensitivity and risk analysis, providing a clean energy awareness, decision-support and capacity building tool.


The aims of this course are to:

  • Equip students with knowledge on different types of energy production plant design, including combined heat and power, their models and the analysis required to completely characterize them.
  • Provide students with the capacity to do energy models of complex thermal power plants.
  • Give students a thorough understanding of system functions and integration that can be used to improve the plant performance and quality by analyzing the plant functions and performance and optimize the processes.
