After successful completion of the module students should be able to: critically evaluate and compare relevant Renewable Energy conversion processes and technologies: photovoltaics, fuel cells and storage critically appraise various electrochemical storage processes and the respective storage techniques analyse various system components and their interconnections within a complex Renewable Energy supply system.
This module will give an overview over a selection of the major renewable energy technologies and some possibilities of their storage. The focus is on the scientific principles of components and the technical description of the components. Further detailed system analysis will be presented in other modules. Physics of PV: - Basic and most important properties of solar radiation related to photovoltaics - PV cells basics: Fundamental physical processes in photovoltaic materials - Characterisation and basic modelling of solar cells Component Description: - PV generator - Charge controller - Inverter - Balance of system components System Description: - Grid Connected System - Stand Alone System Fuel Cells and Energy Storage (Lecture - 90 h workload) - Fundamentals of electrochemistry and thermodynamics, energy and environmental balances - Basics of hydrogen production - starting materials, processes, efficiencies, environmental impacts - Basics of fuel cells function, materials, construction, systems, applications - Fundamental setup of most common battery types - Fundamental chemical reactions in these batteries - Operational characteristics, weir processes and service lives of these batteries
