After successfully completing this module, students will be familiar with and have mastered sound decision-making principles for the selection and operation of decentralized energy generators.
They will understand and be able to evaluate the challenges of and associated decisions by and for the energy system transition in Germany, also in terms of international agreements.
They will have deepened their knowledge regarding the market motivation for the construction and operation of regenerative energy plants, energy distribution networks and energy storage systems, so that they can make reliable statements regarding their use from a technical, ecological and economic point of view
Current laws: EEG (The Renewable Energy Sources Act) and ENEV (The German Energy Saving Ordinance), development of expansion plans for renewable energy production.
Design criteria for cogeneration
CHP plants with piston engine, micro gas turbine, Stirling engine, small steam turbines and fuel cells
Dimensioning cogeneration plants from the point of view of power or heat supply.
Influence of legal requirements on future use
Mechanical, hydraulic, compressed air and electrical energy storage
Electrical power grids:
Tasks of the grid operators
AC and DC power transmission
Challenges posed by grid expansion
Thermal utilization in decentralized plants (plant technology, operating behavior and operation)
Biogas and power-to-gas
Different generations of biofuels
Refrigeration systems and heat pumps
Compression refrigeration machines
Absorption and adsorption refrigeration systems
Operating behavior of heat pumps
Wind turbines and other flow energy converters:
Differences between onshore and offshore plants
Solar thermal power:
Component design and optimization
Optimizing the design of solar collectors
Storage tank design and dimensioning
Other components and plant safety
Collector system operating technology (control and legionella problems)
The inner photoelectric effect
The P-n junction
Solar cell technologies
Design and function of PV modules
Basic understanding of inverters and battery storage systems
Virtual power plant, construction, function and motivation for construction
The electricity exchange in Leipzig and Paris: What is traded? How and why?
Seminaristic lecture. Students must prepare and present at least one topic. The topics will be distributed at the beginning of the lecture and presented after an one-on-one discussion. The lecture will be complemented by lectures from experts and visits to renewable energy production plants. Practical exercises such as recording a solar cell characteristic curve independently or experiments on different heat exchangers will promote a better understanding of the various regenerative energy converters.
