Course Objectives This course aims to provide the basic knowledge about various types of energy distribution systems, to teach the fundamentals of thermal- fluid sciences, to examine the essential technology, processes and policies related to energy distribution. The energy distribution is discussed from a logistics management approach. Several energy resources are analyzed; their extraction and transportation processes are examined. Energy logistics related problems and alternative solution approaches are discussed. Students gain a better understanding of energy distribution in general, and production, consumption, and conservation of energy in particular.
Course Description The students who succeeded in this course;
  • explain the energy sector including oil, natural gas, nuclear energy and electricity.
  • distinguish the types of energy distribution systems
  • explain the management of energy supply and demand
  • model the supply of and demand for energy
  • explain cost minimization models considering pipeline taxes, min max rates, contracts, insurance, pricing and trade issues
  • assess basic concepts of thermodynamics
Course Content This course provides an overview of the energy distribution systems. Management decision processes are discussed with a focus on economic issues and their relationship to operations planning models. The course also includes application of thermo-economic models and examining industry field practices.
