The students gain a system-oriented and interdisciplinary knowledge of technologies for central and decentralized energy supply and master the functional principle and operating behavior of the various energy systems, so that a further training in specific tasks in the field of energy systems during the master's degree or occupation is possible.


The efficient use of fossil fuels and the expanded use of renewable energy sources is one of the major challenges and at the same time a key technology of our time Based on an overview of the available energy sources, the lecture 'Introduction to Energy System Technology' deals with their use in thermal, chemical, mechanical, solar and electrical energy systems, with a detailed look at the structure and function of the energy systems. The highly complex overall system, is divided by reasonable-defined system boundaries into more manageable units (subsystems). Based on that, the performance of subsystems and their interactions with each other is analyzed and described mathematically.



recommended knowledge

  • Basics of Power Engineering
  • Electric Drives
  • Fundamentals of Thermodynamics
