After successful completion of the module students should be able to:

·         implement as well as critically analyse and discuss models and their limitations using various

·         develop research questions and approaches to answer them

·         perform laboratory measurements or simulations in a university environment

·         analyse and interpret their results using relevant and widely used software tools

·         communicate their results with international and interdisciplinary partners according to
          scientific standards

.        write and evaluate scientific papers



In this module the students obtain the knowledge and skills on programming, modelling and critically analysing simulations and apply those in a topic on renewable energies of their choice. Students have the choice to simulate specific renewable energy components or systems which are later investigated in hands-on laboratories. Through this students learn to critically discuss the results of their simulations and compare them to real measurements as well the results from differently implemented simulations from which they deduce the limits and validity of the respective models.
