|learning outcomes||This integrated Optimisation course starts with the most significant aspects of Operations Research and optimization ideas and practices and it focuses in its applications in Energy systems.
The aim of the Course is to provide the state of the art of operational research methods and tools in the optimal design and implementation of a wide range of synchronous problems. The usefulness of OR applies on the modelling of many managerial and/or technological decisions requiring an optimal decision (max or min). For this purpose the fundamental decision making tools (LP, MILN, NLP) are analysed, employed and solved with appropriate software applications (i.e. office SOLVER). Various optimization problems are analysed as cases in the continuation of the Module.
The integration of concepts, laws and methodologies from thermodynamics, heat transfer, economics for the solution of energy and environmental problems. The modeling of simple and more complicated energy systems. The optimization of energy systems in terms of integrated efficiency and profitability. The use of mathematical programming for the analysis and optimization of energy systems.
