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 The objective of this lecture is provide an overview on the current state and application of renewable energy technology. The lecture not only focuses on technologies but also on environmental, social and economical factors that lead to the intensivied world wide harvesting of CO2-neutral energy sources as well as their potentials and limitations. The course RENEWABLE ENERGY TECHNOLOGY (taught in English) is split into two modules 3 ECTS each (one per semester), beginning with “RET I” in the Winter Semester. The attached module “RET II” will be offered in the Summer Semester. The course is supported by various institutions of the TUM: The Institute for Energy Systems, The Institute for Fluid Mechanics, The Institute for Energy Economics and Application Technology, The Institute for Wind Energy as well as the “Laboratory of Steam Boilers and Thermal Plants” from the National Technical University of Athens. The module “RET I” covers the following topics: • Fundamentals (historical overview, power plant fundamentals, climate, energy consumptions and forecasts, energy economics, electricity control, fossil and nuclear energy) • Energy from Biomass (properties of biomass, biomass potentials, fuel properties, heat production, power production by means of combustion, power production by means of gasification, biogas production by means of anaerobic fermentation) • Geothermal Energy (potential, exploitation, direct utilization, central heating, district heating, deep geothermal systems, power generation, combined heat and power, economic aspects, risks) • Wind Energy (basic facts, introduction to wind turbine aerodynamics, the wind resource, wind turbine types, configurations, components) • Wednesday 16:10 / 17:40 pm MW 0350 • 2 hours (90 min) lecture per week; no exercise course/ tutorial • Dates / room for RET II (summer term) to be announced at a future date • Please register in TUMonline (campus.tum.de) for this course • Lecture Renewable Energy Technology consists of two semesters: Renewable Energy Technology I: winter term Renewable Energy Technology II: summer term • 3 ECTS per semester • One written exam after each term (60 min) • Re-examination in the following term on the topics of both terms • Students who take the Module "Renewable Energy I+II" have to take both exams and will get a final grade (6 ECTS).
