Teaching Methods
THE COURSE IS DIVIDED INTO TWO MODULES EACH OF 4.5 CFU AND PROVIDES FOR 90 HOURS OF TEACHING ASSISTED WITH 60 HOURS OF TEACHING IN THE CLASS AND 30 HOURS OF PRACTICE. THE DIDACTIC APPROACH IS AIMED AT DEVELOPING A SYSTEM VISION FOR THE STUDY OF ENERGY SYSTEMS THROUGH INPUT-OUTPUT ANALYSIS. THE COURSE INCLUDES NUMERICAL EXERCISES AND ALGORITHMS CODED IN A COMPUTATIONAL ENVIRONMENT ON COMPUTER. FURTHERMORE, THE STUDENT IS INVOLVED BOTH IN THE SIZING OF SOLAR SYSTEMS, WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF CARRYING OUT ACTIVITIES IN THE LABORATORY, AND IN THE REALIZATION OF FEASIBILITY STUDIES OF INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FROM AN ENERGY POINT OF VIEW. IN THE CLASSROOM EXERCISES, NUMERICAL PROBLEMS ARE ASSIGNED TO STUDENTS WITH THE PURPOSE OF DEEPENING THE CONCEPTS CONCERNING THE ENERGY CONVERSION SYSTEMS. DURING THE EXERCISES, THE TEACHERS GUIDE THE STUDENTS IN SOLVING THE ASSIGNED PROBLEM WITH THE PURPOSE OF DEVELOPING AND STRENGTHENING THEIR CAPABILITIES IN FACING THE SPECIFIC APPLICATION.
Verification of learning
THE LEVEL OF ACHIEVEMENT OF THE TEACHING OBJECTIVES IS CERTIFIED BY PASSING AN EXAM WITH AN EVALUATION OUT OF THIRTY. THE EXAM IS AIMED AT DEEPENING THE LEVEL OF THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE, THE AUTONOMY OF ANALYSIS AND JUDGMENT AND THE EXPOSITORY SKILLS OF THE STUDENT.
THE SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE FIRST MODULE IS DETERMINED BY VERIFICATION OF A SUCCESSFUL ACQUISITION OF THE THEORETICAL AND ANALYTICAL TOOLS RELATED TO FLUID MACHINES AND THE ENERGY CONVERSION PLANTS STUDIED. THE EVALUATION IS CARRIED OUT BY ANALYZING THE SOLUTION CAPABILITIES OF A TYPICAL DESIGN OR MANAGEMENT PROBLEM OF AN ENERGY CONVERSION PLANT FOR INDUSTRIAL OR CIVIL APPLICATIONS.
THE SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE SECOND MODULE IS OBTAINED BY MEANS OF A THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE OF THE FOLLOWING TOPICS: ENERGY, ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ANALYSIS OF THE ENERGY SYSTEMS; OPERATION AND SIZING OF REFRIGERATION MACHINES; OPERATION AND SIZING OF SOLAR THERMAL AND PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS; SIZING AND TECHNICAL-ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY OF A COGENERATION/TRIGENERATION SYSTEM. MOREOVER, THE STUDENT MUST ALSO DEVELOP A FEASIBILITY STUDY ABOUT ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SAVING SOLUTIONS RESPECT TO TRADITIONAL ONES APPLIED TO INDUSTRIAL AND CIVIL USERS.
THE MINIMUM ASSESSMENT LEVEL (18/30) IS AWARDED WHEN THE STUDENT DEMONSTRATES A LIMITED KNOWLEDGE OF THE FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS OF THE COURSE, AND A POOR PRESENTATION SKILLS. THE MAXIMUM LEVEL (30/30) IS ATTRIBUTED WHEN THE STUDENT DEMONSTRATES A COMPLETE AND IN-DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES AND METHODS, AND IS ABLE TO SOLVE THE PROPOSED PROBLEMS BY IDENTIFYING THE MOST APPROPRIATE SOLUTIONS. THE FINAL GRADE IS THE AVERAGE OF THE MARKS OBTAINED IN THE TWO MODULES. HONORS ARE GIVEN WHEN THE CANDIDATE DEMONSTRATES MASTERY OF THE THEORETICAL AND OPERATIONAL CONTENTS, AND SHOWS THAT HE IS ABLE TO PRESENT THE ARGUMENTS WITH REMARKABLE LANGUAGE PROPERTIES AND AUTONOMOUS PROCESSING SKILLS, EVEN IN AREAS OTHER THAN THOSE PROPOSED BY TEACHERS.
