Knowledge and understanding:
At the end of the course the student will know main methods for numerical analysis and solutions to implement them in a computer program for the simulation of the behaviour and operational characteristics of Fluid Machinery and Power/Energy Plants.
Applying Knowledge and understanding:
The student will be able to understand how a computer program operates, identify solutions and critical aspect with particular reference to the simulation of the behaviour of Fluid Machinery and Energy Systems.
The student will have tools to critically evaluate the validity of a simulation model and the applications where it can be, or not, used to simulate the behaviour of Fluid Machinery and Energy Systems.
The student must have the capability to clearly present the main features of developed models and computer programs and the results obtained through the use of block diagrams, tables and graphs.
The student will be able, starting from the basic knowledge acquired in the course, to get by himself information and techniques on the continuous improvement of mathematical models and numerical methods used for the simulation of Fluid Machinery and Energy Systems that can be studied and/or proposed on the market, thus continuously updating their skills on systems simulation.
