Advanced energetics

The course “Advanced Energetics” introduces methods for the rational use and conversion of energy in industrial processes. The main topics that are covered are: how to analyse the energy usage, calculate the heat recovery by pinch analysis, define heat exchanger network, integrate heat pumps and cogeneration units and realise exergy analysis of energy conversion systems.

Advanced energetics



  • Energy efficiency
  • Heat recovery
  • Energy conversion
  • Exergy analysis
  • Pinch analysis
  • Industrial processes



The course is organised in theoretical lectures and in a team project in which a real case study has to be solved. In the project the tool pinchtxt is used for the pinch analysis.

The course material can be downloaded from the moodle website.
