Module content
Lectures:

These lectures will provide an overview of current and planned technologies for the
continued use of coal in power generation. It will provide the information about the
backgrounds of CCS systems and some leading technologies including their prospects for
commercialization. The aim of this course is to give the students a better understanding the
technical aspects and new ideas in the future more clean power generation technologies
based on accessible fossil fuel resources. The class-room lectures will be supplemented by
practical exercises and projects based on computer laboratory simulation tools (ASPENPlus,
Thermofluids, IPSE PRO ). The course consists of lectures, classes and computer laboratory.
Lectures will concern the following subjects: Fossil fuels combustion – environmental and
economy factors, Coal chemistry, conversion and combustion, Review of recent energy
conversion technologies, Pre- and post-combustion carbon capture and sequestration,
Adsorption and absorption technologies for post- and pre-combustion capture, Precombustion
capture technologies, Fischer-Tropsch (F-T)and chemical looping combustion
(CLC) processes, Integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) technologies, Advanced
combustion technologies – fluidized bed and oxy-coal technologies, Polygeneration and
synthetic fuels production, Clean coal – environmental and economy aspects.

Project classes:

Classes: there are exercises in the form of classroom and home problems that are solved by
groups of three students each. Some of the selected problems will be coupled to the
computer laboratory simulation software.
Computer laboratory exercises are carried out by groups of two students each. By this the
students can practice with the engineering software tools (ipse pro, ASPENPlus, Thermofluids and
others), and solve some applied problems such:
1. Thermodynamic and process analysis and the selection of coal-based CHP power-plant.
2. Application of amine technology for post-combustion carbon capture and separation.
3. Effectiveness and economy penalties for analyzed carbon capture technology.
Based on actual data from industry, students in the program IPSEpro are modeling coal power plants and exploring ways to reduce its negative impacts in the environment and reduce CO2 emissions. Students assess during the discussion in terms of technical economic separation technology which CO2 would be the best to use in industrial scale. The selected technology is modeled in the program IPSEpro and then connected to the power plant. Students assess the impact of the separation on the work of power in terms of technical and economical. Based on these data, students looking for opportunities to improve the process of separation in such a way that minimal effect on the operation of power plants and assess in group and inventive ideas in terms of sustainable development. Students prepare a final report in groups in which they choose a leader who coordinates the work of other members of the group determine the task, based on the knowledge acquired during their studies evaluates which tasks in which order are to be made and the time to perform particular tasks (group leader changes – each member of the group He is the leader). The report is evaluated by the teacher who asks the questions about report and the members of the group must defend ideas which presented in the report.

Method of calculating the final grade:

Grading formula: FG= w(PMWFlec*PMGlec+ PMWFproj*PMGproj)
Where:
• FG-final grade
• PMWFlec – Lecture part weighting factor – 0,5
• PMGlec – Grade of achieved LOs relevant to lecture
• PMWFproj – Project part weighting factor – 0,5
• PMGproj – Grade of achieved LOs relevant to project
• W = 1 for first evaluation deadline and 1st retake and w =0.9 for 2nd retake.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

Basic knowledge of chemical engineering and basic English
