Advanced Thermodynamics

equivalent to the German lecture “Thermodynamik II”

(2L+1T+1L), Summer Semester, 4 ECTS-LP

Begin: 23.04.2020


Hinweis

Diese Vorlesung findet nur in englisch statt.

This module completes the basic foundation of technical thermodynamics by applying the laws of thermodynamics to a variety of energy conversion processes.

In the lab the students will gain practical experience in running energy conversion devices on a laboratory scale as well as social competence through teamwork.

AFTER SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THIS MODULE THE STUDENT WILL BE ABLE TO

  • describe different pathways in energy conversion on transferring primary energy into technical useful energy.
  • They learn to design different types of energy conversion devices such as furnaces, fuel cells, gas turbines and Rankine cycles on a quantitative basis.
  • Also describing the environmental impact on behalf of CO2-emissions by burning fossil fuels is part of the learned methods.
  • Furthermore, they will assess different energy conversion capabilities using the exergy concept.
