227-1631-00L | Energy System Analysis | 4 credits | 3G | G. Hug, S. Hellweg, F. Noembrini, A. Schlüter | |

Abstract | The course provides an introduction to the methods and tools for analysis of energy consumption, energy production and energy flows. Environmental aspects are included as well as economical considerations. Different sectors of the society are discussed, such as electric power, buildings, and transportation. Models for energy system analysis planning are introduced. | ||||

Learning objective | The purpose of the course is to give the participants an overview of the methods and tools used for energy systems analysis and how to use these in simple practical examples. | ||||

Content | The course gives an introduction to methods and tools for analysis of energy consumption, energy production and energy flows. Both larger systems, e.g. countries, and smaller systems, e.g. industries, homes, vehicles, are studied. The tools and methods are applied to various problems during the exercises. Different conventions of energy statistics used are introduced. The course provides also an introduction to energy systems models for developing scenarios of future energy consumption and production. Bottom-up and Top-Down approaches are addressed and their features and applications discussed. The course contains the following parts: Part I: Energy flows and energy statistics Part II: Environmental impacts Part III: Electric power systems Part IV: Energy in buildings Part V: Energy in transportation Part VI: Energy systems models | ||||
