Form of exam:oral
Registration for exam:FlexNow


The students can assess the potential of the different regenerative energy sources depending on the location and create a usage-specific description. Building on expertise in available technologies for the use of renewable energy sources, students are able to conceive, design and implement energy supply systems based on renewable energy sources. Furthermore, the students have the scientific qualification to be active in the field of the further development of regenerative energy application in industry and research.


On the basis of overview of the available energy sources, solar, wind, geothermal heat and biomass, as well as the thermal, chemical, mechanical and electrical processes, which are needed for the energy conversion, the possibilities of anthropogenic use of renewable energies will be taught in the lecture 'Renewable Electric Power Engineering', with discussion on the usable potentials of the solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy and biomass, as well as technologies for their usage. For this, their stationary and dynamic performance is presented. Particular attention is given to the usage-based description of energy sources and the selection of the most useful form of energy for the associated energy conversion chain.
