- Description: As a renewable and environmentally friendly energy source, biomass and their gasification and combustion for fuel, heat and power production are gaining an increasingly important role worldwide. The objective of this PhD course is to provide a state-of-the-art presentation of the science and technology and the modelling strategies of biomass gasification and combustion. The course will cover: (1) solid biomass fuels, fuel characteristics and impacts; (2) an overview of thermochemical conversion of biomass; (3) single biomass particle combustion and gasification and the modelling; (4) biomass gasification on reactor scale: principles, key factors, reactor types and gasifier design; (5) biomass combustion technologies used in the power industries from grate-firing to suspension-firing: main characteristics, problems and solutions; (6) biomass combustion modelling: from gas-phase combustion modelling to new sub-models associated with biomass combustion and to overall modelling strategies for different biomass combustion systems (e.g., suspension-firing systems and grate-firing systems); (7) a number of demos/hands-on, e.g., modelling of single biomass gasification & combustion and CFD simulation of biomass combustion systems; (8) test and demonstration of biomass pellet combustion in a 400 kW grate-fired boiler. The course is aimed at recent graduates and professional combustion or power engineers who only have a limited experience in this field.

- Important information concerning PhD courses
We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
