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 First, conversion concepts for heat production and utilization from solar energy are introduced and compared. It is focused on collector systems such as Parabolic Trough and Fresnel systems as well as solar tower concepts. Additionally, conventional and innovative cycle processes for power generation from solar heat are introduced (e.g. ORC, Rankine cycle). For this, needed knowledge in the field of working and heat transfer fluids are elaborated in the lecture. In addition to purely solar-powered plants, the possibility of hybridization is discussed. With the aim of a continuous power generation, a focus is placed on heat and electricity storage. Besides an overview of existing projects an outlook on future projects and technologies is given. Lecture accompanying tutorials are held and a Matlab exercise for designing a solar thermal process is offered to be examined individually by the students.
