Welcome to EnergyPlan - Designing tools for energy system analysis in Delphi Pascal

The PhD course in Designing tools for energy analysis in Delphi Pascal gives the student a hands on approach in developing and utlizing tools coded in Delphi Pascal. The basis will be the framework of EnergyPLAN, an already existing tool for energy systems analysis for which help tools will be designed. The student chooses its own problem to analyze and can design a tool relevant for his or her PhD.

The knowledge will include a small introduction to Delphi Pascal, an introduction to the code behind EnergyPLAN and the consequences of the coding behind EnergyPLAN. Else the course primarily focuses on hands on work, to make the student capable of coding a tool for energy system analysis and using the tool to make energy system analyses relevant for the student's PhD. The course expects time used between the workshops on working on ones model.

The course will consist of three whole days workshops.

Workshop 1 (27 October 2014)
Introduction to Delphi Pascal and introduction to EnergyPLAN. Begin working the models.
Teachers: Jakob Zink Thellufsen and Henrik Lund

Workshop 2 (10 November 2014)
Presentation of status of the tools. Continue work on the models and getting help to progress
Teachers: Henrik Lund and Henning Mæng (emd.dk)

Workshop 3 (1 December 2014)
Presenting "final" results and how the tools have been appllied. Discuss the further development of the tools.
Teachers: Henrik Lund, Brian Vad Mathiesen, David Connolly, (Poul Alberg Østergaard)

Workload = 3 ECTS (84 hours)
Divided between:
24 hours of lectures
10 hours of reading
50 hours of working on models, preparing questions and preparing presentations.
