Presentazione
The description, modelling, analysis of advanced energy systems based on the integration of power, thermo-chemical and electro-chemical processes for poly-generation purposes. Starting from the fundamentals of chemical thermodynamics and electrochemistry applied to energy systems, the course develops topics related to electrochemical systems (fuel cells, electrolyzers, flow batteries), thermo-chemical systems (gasification, production of biogas, chemical looping systems), concepts of chemical storage for the production of synthetic fuels (CO2 recovery, power-to-gas, power-to-liquid processes) and complete this with the analysis of some examples of complex poly-generation systems.
Some activities at the lab level (mainly on electrochemical and thermochemical systems applied to energy) will be developed along the course.

Organizzazione dell'insegnamento
A project (home assignment) will be developed during the LAIB lectures using the ASPEN+ tool.
The Topic varies every year (as an example: feasibility study of a biogas fed SOFC system)

In the labs, experimental tests will be developed on single cells and stack PEMFC (3 h) and on single cells and stack SOFC (3 h), on high pressure electrolysis and high temperature electrolysis (1.5 h), on Li-ion batteries (1.5 h), on thermo-chemical systems (3.0 h in SMAT) and on production of chemicals (3 hours).

Criteri, regole e procedure per l'esame
The final exam starts with a WRITTEN PART, composed usually of 2 calculation exercises and 2 open questions.
The following ORAL PART has the following rules:
MANDATORY SECTION: evaluation of the project (home assignment): grades 0-3 points, added to the grade of the Writing Part
OPTIONAL SECTION: oral exam on all the topics of the course: the grade of the Writing Part will be modified according to the result of the Oral Part, with a range in the order of -3 (decrease) +3 (increase) points.
