【Speaker】:Dr. Jiangfeng Zhang (Senior Lecturer at the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University of Strathclyde, UK).

【Title】:Applications of modelling techniques in energy optimisation

【Time】:9:30 am-11:30am, Jun 26, 2015

【Location】:6th floor, Main Building

【About Report】:
  A general overview of energy optimization modeling is presented in this talk. Energy system modeling is discussed from the viewpoints of mass balance, energy balance, logic constraints, and process and service correlations. Applications of typical techniques of mathematical modeling and control modeling in energy optimization are introduced, and case studies from water pumping system, mining plants, power plant maintenance, energy project investment, etc., are discussed.

【About Speaker】:
