Advanced measurement techniques in energy technology
Spring Term 2021
About the course
The course is divided into two modules: 1. Theory, 5.0 ECTS 2. Experimental, 2.5 ECTS The course covers theoretical and practical aspects of measurement techniques used in the field of energy technology, both in academia and industry. The focus is on characterization of multi-phase flows in thermochemical energy conversion processes. The course includes measurement methods for temperature, concentration of atoms and molecules in gas phase, aerosols and chemical composition of gases and solids. For gas phase measurements, the emphasis lies on non-invasive online detection with optical methods, such as laser spectroscopy. For solids, the course covers particle sampling and off-line analysis with advanced techniques based on light scattering, electron microscopy and mass spectrometry. An overall presentation of the physical and chemical principles of the measurement techniques is given, as well as an overview and examples of applications. The performance of the methods and devices in practical energy conversion processes and energy systems is discussed. The course consists of both theoretical and experimental elements, and is closely related to current research and development.
