Methods for the model based design of energy systems



ModE Team



In the course Methods of model-based energy system design, students learn the technical terms of modeling and mathematical optimization methods and the methods of modeling energy systems as mathematical optimization problems as well as possible solution methods. A special focus is placed on the model-based design of sector-coupled energy systems with storage, grids and energy converters, taking into account a high penetration of renewable energies.

The contents of the individual lecture dates are as follows:

VL1 – Introduction to energy systems design
VL2 – Linear optimization
VL3 – Good modelling practice
VL4 – Multiobjective optimization
VL5 – Scheduling
VL6 – Gametheory
VL7 – Uncertainties
VL8 –Complexity reduction
VL9 – Nonlinear and convex optimization
VL10 – Advanced optimization
VL11 – The SecMod-framework


Lecture and Exercise

The lecture will be held in English and will be offered in the upcoming summer semester 2023. All further information about the module can be found on RWTH Online.
