Learning outcome

Studentene skal ha innsikt i praktiske industrielle anvendelser innenfor energiproduksjon og energiomsetning. Studentene skal ha god kjennskap til fornybare og ikke-fornybare energikilder. Studentene skal kunne anvende termodynamikk og annen generell fysikk for å forstå hvordan en kan utnytte aktuelle energiressurser og bruke ulike energiomformingsprinsipper. Studentene skal forstå prinsipper og bruksområder for ulike måter å lagre og fordele energi på.
  • The lectures will cover main ideas and theories of energy physics and closely related topics, it will give the baisc tools for the student to address different problems and situations. In exercises, the students will solve related problems to the field, using mathematical tools. The concepts in the lectures will serve as guide for adressing the problems.
