Objectives
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE MODELLING OF ENERGY AND PROPULSION SYSTEMS COURSE IS TO STUDY AND ANALYSE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MATHEMATICAL MODELS APPLICABLE TO THE STUDY OF FLUID MACHINES, ENERGY AND PROPULSION SYSTEMS. THE COURSE, HELD IN THE II SEMESTER OF THE FIRST YEAR OF THE MASTER’S DEGREE COURSE IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING, IS OF 9 CREDITS (ECTS).
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDINGS
AT THE END OF THE COURSE, THE STUDENT WILL GAIN KNOWLEDGE ON:
-MAIN ISSUES RELATED TO THE MODELING REPRESENTATION OF THE MAIN PHENOMENA INVOLVED IN FLUID MACHINES, ENERGY AND PROPULSION SYSTEMS;
-DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS PRINCIPLES;
-BASICS OF 2D FLOW AROUND A PROFILE;
-INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES (ICE) AND RELATED APPLICATION ISSUES;
-ICE DESIGN, MANAGEMENT OF THE CONNECTION TO THE LOAD AND ISSUES RELATED TO COMBUSTION, POLLUTANT EMISSIONS AND CONTROL SYSTEMS;
-METHODOLOGIES TO DEVELOP SIMPLE MATHEMATICAL MODELS IN MATLAB ENVIRONMENT FOR THE DESIGN AND CONTROL OF FLUID MACHINES AND THERMAL POWER PLANTS, PARTICULARLY BY USING IDENTIFICATION TECHNIQUES AIMED AT THE BEST COMPROMISE BETWEEN PRECISION AND GENERALIZATION;
-SELECTION CRITERIA FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SCALE MODELS AND FOR THE APPLICATION OF THE MECHANICAL SIMILARITY LAWS:
-CALCULATION METHODOLOGIES TO BE ADOPTED FOR INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE SIZING BOTH IN STATIONARY AND TRANSIENT OPERATION.
ABILITY TO APPLY THE ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE
AT THE END OF THE COURSE, THE STUDENT WILL BE ABLE TO:
-APPLY ADVANCED CALCULATION METHODS FOR OPTIMAL CONTROL STRATEGIES DESIGN;
-ANALYZE DIFFERENT MATHEMATICAL MODELS AND CHOOSE THE MOST APPROPRIATE MODEL DEPENDING ON THE SPECIFIC APPLICATION, IN TERMS OF PRECISION, GENERALIZATION AND COMPUTATIONAL TIME;
-ANALYZING PROBLEMS RELATED TO THE DESIGN AND CONTROL OF INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES ORIENTED TO AUTOMOTIVE USES;
-IDENTIFY THE MOST APPROPRIATE METHODS FOR THE QUANTITATIVE EVALUATION OF ENGINE PERFORMANCE DEPENDING ON FINAL APPLICATION;
-DEVELOP MODEL-BASED OPTIMIZATION PROCEDURE FOR THE OPTIMAL DESIGN AND ENERGY MANAGEMENT FOR MACHINES AND THERMAL ENGINE SYSTEMS.
AUTONOMY OF JUDGEMENT
CAPABILITY OF IDENTIFYING THE MOST SUITABLE MODELS FOR THE DATA ANALYSIS AND RESOLUTION OF PROBLEMS RELATED TO FLUID MACHINES END ENERGY SYSTEMS.
COMMUNICATION SKILLS
CAPABILITY OF PRESENTING THE MATHEMATICAL MODELS SELECTED FOR THE RESOLUTION OF AN ENGINEERING PROBLEM LINKED TO THE TOPICS ADDRESSED IN THE COURSE. THE STUDENT IS CAPABLE OF ILLUSTRATING THE PERFORMED ANALYSIS, THE HYPOTHESIS MADE FOR MODEL SELECTION AND THE ADVANTAGES IN THE USE OF THE MODEL IN AN INDUSTRIAL AND PROFESSIONAL CONTEXT. CAPABILITY OF DESCRIBING THE PROCEDURES AND THE ACHIEVED RESULTS, BOTH IN WRITTEN AND ORAL FORM, WITH A SUITABLE TECHNICAL TERMINOLOGY.
LEARNING SKILLS
KNOW HOW TO APPLY THE ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE TO CONTEXTS DIFFERENT FROM THOSE PRESENTED DURING THE COURSE, AND TO DEEPEN THE TOPICS DISCUSSED USING MATERIALS OTHER THAN THOSE PROPOSED.
Prerequisites
SUCCESSFUL ACHIEVEMENT OF ALL OBJECTIVES REQUIRES DETAILED KNOWLEDGE OF THERMODYNAMICS, APPLIED MECHANICS, FLUID MACHINERY AND ENERGY SYSTEMS AS WELL AS BASICS OF COMPUTER PROGRAMMING.
Contents
THE COURSE CONSISTS OF 90 HOURS (9 ECTS) DIVIDED INTO THEORETICAL LESSONS (60 H), NUMERICAL EXERCISES (25 H) AND GUIDED EXERCISES IN LABORATORY (5 H). THE MAIN ARGUMENTS ADDRESSED IN THE COURSE ARE:
-STUDY AND ANALYSIS OF THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MATHEMATICAL MODELS APPLICABLE TO THE STUDY OF FLUID MACHINES AND ENERGY SYSTEMS (6H THEORETICAL LESSONS AND 4H NUMERICAL EXERCISES);
-APPROPRIATE MODELLING REPRESENTATION OF THE MAIN PHENOMENA OF INTEREST IN THE FLUID MACHINES AND PROPULSION SYSTEMS (6H THEORETICAL LESSONS AND 4H NUMERICAL EXERCISES);
-THE PRINCIPLES OF DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS (5 H THEORETICAL LESSONS);
-THE BASIC CONCEPTS OF 2D FLOW AROUND A PROFILE (5 H THEORETICAL LESSONS);
-STUDY OF INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES AND RELATED APPLICATION PROBLEMS (15 H THEORETICAL LESSONS AND 3 H LABORATORY);
-THEORETICAL, QUANTITATIVE AND APPLICATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE ENGINES DESIGN AND THEIR COUPLING WITH THE OPERATING SYSTEMS (9 H THEORETICAL LESSONS, 6 H NUMERICAL EXERCISES AND 2 H LABORATORY);
-PROBLEMS RELATED TO COMBUSTION, POLLUTANT EMISSIONS FORMATION AS WELL AS TO REGULATION AND CONTROL SYSTEMS (10 H THEORETICAL LESSONS);
-BASIC MODELLING WITH APPLICATIONS IN MATLAB ENVIRONMENT FOR PROJECT AND CONTROL OF MACHINES AND THERMAL ENGINE SYSTEMS (5 H THEORETICAL LESSONS AND 10 H NUMERICAL EXERCISES).

Teaching Methods
TEACHING INCLUDES THEORETICAL LESSONS (60 H), CLASSROOM NUMERICAL EXERCISES (25 H) AND GUIDED LABORATORY EXERCISES (5 H). THE COURSE IS ORGANIZED AS FOLLOWS:
-CLASSROOM LESSONS RELATED TO ALL TOPICS ADDRESSED IN THE COURSE.
-NUMERICAL EXERCISES HELD IN THE “TEACHING AND BASIC COMPUTER SCIENCE” LABORATORY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF INFORMATION ENGINEERING AND ELECTRIC AND APPLIED MATHEMATICS. THE NUMERICAL EXERCISES ENTAIL THE DEVELOPMENT OF MODELS AND ALGORITHMS RELATED TO THE DIFFERENT TOPICS, IMPLEMENTED IN MATLAB-SIMULINK ENVIRONMENT.
-IN THE LABORATORY EXERCISES, HELD IN THE “MACHINES AND ENERGY SYSTEMS” LABORATORY, THE STUDENTS APPLY SEVERAL EXPERIMENTAL METHODS REQUIRED FOR THE CHARACTERIZATION OF AN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE AND A DYNAMIC OPERATING MACHINE.
Verification of learning
THE SUCCESSFUL ACHIEVEMENT OF COURSE OBJECTIVES WILL BE ASSESSED THROUGH AN EVALUATION EXAM (30 IS THE MAXIMUM MARK). VERIFICATION INVOLVES A WRITTEN NUMERICAL TEST, BY MEANS OF A PC AND WITH THEORETICAL QUESTIONS, BEYOND WHICH THE STUDENT WILL BE ABLE TO TAKE THE ORAL TEST.
THE WRITTEN NUMERICAL TEST, OF AN AVERAGE DURATION OF 2 HOURS, CONSISTS IN SOLVING A PROBLEM OF THE SAME TYPE AS THOSE SOLVED DURING THE CLASSROOM EXERCISE HOURS AND AVAILABLE ON THE TEACHING WEBSITE. THE TEST ALSO INCLUDES 4 THEORETICAL QUESTIONS. THE MARK IS EXPRESSED IN A SCALE FROM A (MAXIMUM MARK) TO D (MINIMUM MARK) FOR THE ADMISSION.
THE ORAL TEST CONSISTS IN A DISCUSSION, LASTING NO MORE THAN ABOUT 40 MINUTES, FOCUSED ON THE EVALUATION OF THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE, AUTONOMY OF ANALYSIS AND JUDGEMENT AND COMMUNICATION SKILLS. PARTICULARLY, QUESTIONS ARE FORMULATED WITH RESPECT TO MODELLING OF FLUID MACHINES AND PROPULSION SYSTEMS, OPERATION AND CONTROL OF INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES, TYPE AND REDUCTION METHODS OF EMISSIONS.
THE FINAL MARK GENERALLY COMES FROM THE AVERAGE OF THE TWO TESTS. THE EVALUATION OF THE TESTS TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE CAPABILITIES OF SELECTING THE MOST SUITABLE METHODS FOR THE ANALYSIS OF THE FLUID-MACHINES AND THE ENERGY & PROPULSION SYSTEMS, EXPRESSING IN A CLEAR AND CONCISE WAY THE OBJECTIVES, THE METHOD AND THE RESULTS OF THE PROCESSING, AS WELL AS DEEPENING THE TOPICS WITH REFERENCES DIFFERENT FROM THOSE SUGGESTED.
THE MINIMUM EVALUATION LEVEL TO PASS THE EXAMINATION (18/30) IS GIVEN TO A STUDENT THAT SHOWS UNCERTAINTIES IN THE CHOICE OF THE MATHEMATICAL MODELS ACCORDING TO AVAILABLE DATA AND MODELLING OBJECTIVES, PRESENTS A LIMITED KNOWLEDGE ON THE OPERATING PRINCIPLES OF THE STUDIED SYSTEMS AND HAS POOR COMMUNICATION SKILLS.
THE MAXIMUM EVALUATION LEVEL (30/30) IS GIVEN WHEN THE STUDENT PROVES HIS COMPLETE AND WIDE KNOWLEDGE OF MODELS AND OPERATING PRINCIPLES OF THE MACHINES AND HIS COMPETENCE IN USING THE STUDIED METHODOLOGIES AND SOLUTIONS, IN ADDITION TO THE CAPABILITY OF ANALYSING AND SOLVING TECHNO-ENERGETIC PROBLEMS AND SUMMARIZING THE IDENTIFIED SOLUTIONS.
THE MAXIMUM EVALUATION WITH HONOURS (30/30 CUM LAUDE) IS GIVEN WHEN THE STUDENT PROVES AN OUTSTANDING COMPETENCE ON THE THEORETICAL AND OPERATIONAL TOPICS AS WELL AS HIGH COMMUNICATION AND INVESTIGATION SKILLS ALSO IN CONTEXT DIFFERENT FROM THOSE PROPOSED BY THE TEACHER.
