From gas to Electricity

This is the study programme for 2020/2021.

Energi conversion, heat transfer, system analysis and combustion technologies

Learning outcome

The course will provide students with concrete knowledge about energy conversion technologies' functioning and efficiency. After fully completed the course students will be able to demonstrate skills in understanding of energy conversion technologies' function and performance, both from a technical and environmental point of view. After have completed the course the student will have needed knowledge to perform simple calculations of gas-based power plants, and evaluate various environmental measures in effect and difficulties.


This course provides general knowledge of energy conversiontechniques from natural gas to electricity and værme.Gasboilersand associated steam cycles and gas turbines and combined cycles are studied at both the system and component level. Engineering tools such as TS, HSandTQ diagrams for systems and component analysisis introduced. Component design and development trends for subsystems and component sin the above cycles are discussed. Using simple examples,the connections between thermodynamics, system design and efficiency are discussed.
Gasboilersand associated steam cycles are studied at both the system and component level and simplified heat transfer calculations are introduced. Gas turbinedesign and development are highlighted. Combustion and energy conversion in boilers and turbine combustors are compared and fundamental CO2 cleaning technologies are introduced
