A two-day Seminar on Dynamic Energy Systems Modelling and Heat Pumps in Energy Efficient Buildings

Dynamic Energy Systems Modelling Heat Pumps in Energy Efficient Buildings

Place: Sähkömiehentie 4 A, K4 building, lecture room 172, 1st floor
Time: 20.4. - 21.4.2015, from 9.00 to 16.00

To whom: All (bachelor-level students, master-level students, doctoral students, research-ers, staff) interested in modelling dynamic energy systems, heat pumps, energy-efficient buildings and ESCO’s

Lecturers: Professor Dr. Andra Blumberga, Riga Technical University, Latvia
Docent Dr. Dzintars Jaunzems, Riga Technical University, Latvia
Professor Dr. Andra Blumberga and Docent Dr. Dzintars Jaunzems from Riga Technical University, Latvia will give visiting lectures on a two-day seminar called “Dynamic Energy Systems Modelling and Heat Pumps in Energy Efficient Buildings”. Dr. Blumberga’s lectures are related to dynamic en-ergy systems modelling and Dr. Jaunzems on role of heat pumps in energy efficient buildings and also on the possibility to use Energy Service Companies (ESCO) in energy-related renovation of multi-family buildings.

Program:
Monday 20.4.2015
9.00-12.00 Dynamic System modelling, Dr. Andra Blumberga

  •  System dynamics as modeling technique and tool for non-linear, dynamic, complex systems with delays.
  • Modelling process of system dynamics.

13.00-16.00 Heat pumps in energy efficient buildings, Dr. Dzintars Jaunzems

  • Role of heat pumps – a key technology in the context of energy efficient buildings
  • The most common types of heat pumps in the residential sector
  • Low temperature heating systems
  •  Technology in focus – ground source heat pumps
