• Welcome to Advanced Energy System Analysis on the EnergyPLAN model


    The PhD course gives an introduction to advanced energy system analysis using the EnergyPLAN computer model. After the course the participants are expected to be able to understand methodologies of advanced energy system analysis and to be able to use the EnergyPLAN computer model as a tool in making energy system analyses.


    The course is conducted as a combination of lectures and computer workshops of a total of 4 days (32 hours) and assignments of a total of 6-7 days (52 hours).  Results of assignments will be presented by the participants.


    The course start with an introduction to the model (installation, using, constructing new data sets) and proceeds to focus on the use of the model in

    -        sustainable cities and communities

    -        technical analyses of large-scale integration of wind.

    -        analyses of exchange with external electricity markets

    -        combinations of different renewable energy technologies.

    -        designing flexible energy systems using flexible technologies such as heat pumps, hydrogen storage, pumped storage etc.

    -        district heating systems versus individual houses and zero energy buildings designing energy systems based on multiple criteria

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.
