Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks This course covers the fundamentals of engineering thermodynamics, with a focus on energy systems. It introduces the basic concepts of thermodynamics and then expands to the application of thermodynamic principles to energy systems and their components. These include gas turbines, steam turbines, steam generators, fuel cells, combustion systems, heat exchangers and refrigeration systems. The concept of exergy, the maximum theoretical net work that can be derived from an amount of energy or an energy flow, is also introduced and applied to the aforementioned systems. Overall, the course should provide the fundamental knowledge for further lectures such as "Thermal Power Plants" and provide an overview of how thermodynamic principles can be applied for the analysis and design of energy systems.
