After successfully completing this module, students will be able to:
- identify the different forms of renewable energy, such as solar, wind, hydro and ocean energy, geothermal and biomass.
- distinguish between terms such as primary, secondary, final and useful energy.
- perform simple design calculations.
- illustrate the main conversion steps of energy in renewable energy systems.
- formulate simple mass and energy balances.
- research scientific questions in a team and present them to an audience.
- independently document contributions developed in the team.
- put their own study group together to work as a team on a conference paper about “renewable energies”.
After an introduction to mass and energy balances in simple technical systems and the prediction of energy yields (annual frequency distribution), the following topics will be introduced:
- Hydropower (potential and aggregates)
- Ocean energy (potential and aggregates)
- Wind turbines
(power of the wind, drag rotor, lift rotor, power of a wind power turbine)
- Solar thermal power
(solar irradiance, solar thermal water heating, solar thermal power plants, ORC plants)
- Geothermal (temperature-dependent utilization options: generating heat and power, near-surface and deep geothermal energy (HDR with ORC plants).
- Photovoltaic systems (cells, modules, power inverter)
- Biomass (growth and classification of biomass, forms of biomass, utilization chains with final energetic use, special biomass (energy crops and algae), utilization systems, grate-fired combustion plants, biodiesel, biogas, bioethanol, combustion chemistry and emissions)
Course materials and exercises Groups will be divided up into individual teams to conduct an RE conference on self-selected presentations (gamification); Students will create and document posts for social media.
At the end of the module, students will hold presentations and take a written exam.
