Energy Systems

ECTS Credits: 2

Duration: 21 h   + 3 Department h

Semester: S8

Person(s) in charge:

Vincent Schick, assistant professor,

Keywords: Combustion engines - Refrigerating systems - Gas turbine - Steam turbine - Combustion

Prerequisites: Bachelor thermodynamics, open/closed systems thermodynamics


The study of energy systems and their industrial applications

  1. Simplified approach to combustion : calculating LHV, HHV, theoretical air, composition of exhaust gas, theoretical combustion temperature, stoichiometry, with excess air, dilution ratios, Ostwald diagrams, fuel comparisons

  2. Gaz turbine : open cycle, closed cycle, electricity production, aeronautical applications

  3. Steam turbine : racking, superheating, resuperheating, classical thermodynamic and supercritical cycles

  4. Combined cycles : cogeneration and trigeneration,

  5. Internal combustion engine : petrol engines, diesel engines (two and four stroke cycles), supercharge with intermediary cooling, EGR systems, Stirling engine

  6. Cold generation : by steam compression, absorption, adsorption, thermoelectricity, heat pumps

  7. An opening on air conditioning

The software Thermoptim is used to model rather precisely some systems.
