Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions

Content

The lecture will cover the relevant questions concerning "sustainability" and "mobility". -term sustainability: definition of sustainability; Social, ecological and economic sustainability - production of electric cars: crictial resoruces (electric motor, fuel cell, battery), cumulated energy demand; comparison of different traction systems -decommissioning of cars: waste management (regulations), recycling strategies - sustainability deficits of existing mobility: oil based system, geo-politics, CO2-emissions, particulate emissions, noise, ... - sustainability of electric vehicles: power system and integration of electromobility in the power system - development of the necessary infrastructure: conventional technologies (oil, natural gas, ...), infrastructure for electric vehicles (fast charging, battery swopping, ...) new norms and concepts - electromobility and smart grid: the new technology paradigm of the 21st century - autonomous driving - new mobility concepts beyond technology: car sharing, inter modal transport

Learning Outcome

After completing of the course, the student will be able to - describe the various terms of sustainability and be able to asses the different approaches critically - know different methods to assess central sustainablity indicators like life cycle costs and CO2-emissions - know various procedures which can turn the mobility sector into a sustainable system and is able to apply these terms and methods to the field of mobility

Preconditions

Fundamentals about: - energy systems - renewable energies

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

The module exam consists of a 60 min written exam about the lecture. Its purpose is to determine to what extend the participants have reached the formulated outcomes. The exam will be graded.

Exam Repetition

There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.

Condensed Matter

When atoms interact things can get interesting. Fundamental research on the underlying properties of materials and nanostructures and exploration of the potential they provide for applications.

Nuclei, Particles, Astrophysics

A journey of discovery to understanding our world at the subatomic scale, from the nuclei inside atoms down to the most elementary building blocks of matter. Are you ready for the adventure?

Biophysics

Biological systems, from proteins to living cells and organisms, obey physical principles. Our research groups in biophysics shape one of Germany's largest scientific clusters in this area.
