Prerequisites
Students are required to acknowledge basics from courses such as electrical energetic/energy management, chemistry, technical physics, controls, thermal prime movers, electrical drives.
Learning outcomes
The course outlines energy efficiency concepts, linked to the use of fixed speed and variable speed drives for a specific application which is the compressed air production and management.
Course contents
Applications of electrical drives for the compressed air facility.
Recall to basic knowledge on fluid machines (compressors); introduction to CAS; configurations and the energy efficiency issue.
Modeling and mentions to controls.
Energy comparisons between fixed and variable speed machines.
