goals

The students expand and extend their knowledge in the area of renewable energy systems. They learn how to apply theory, as known from several lectures, to renewable energy sources. They become able to configure, analyze and optimize renewable energy systems and associated basic power electronic topologies. They take parasitic effects as well as restrictions following from layout, structure and materials relevant for renewable energy systems into account when designing and operating such systems. They discuss properties and future development of renewable energies on a scientific level, preparing them for work in industry and academia.

content

The prac­tical course analyses the operation of energy conversion systems with special regard to renewable energy system using a combination of simulations and laboratory experiments. Operational characteristics are discussed based on measurements and analysis of characteristical quantities. Seven experiments (partly simulation, partly test bench) cover photovoltaics, wind energy, energy managment in decentralized systems, characteristics of basic power electronic topoolgies, grid conditioning techniques and the intergration of renewable energy. The software package Anesys is used to configure, analyse and optimize renewable energy systems.

miscellaneous

In summer term 2020 an extended version starts, which matches the demands of a mandatory practical course. Scope, level and content are adjusted to allow for this.
