Die Studierenden besitzen die erforderlichen Fertigkeiten über Energiesysteme unterschiedlicher Art, um selbständig unterschiedlichen Probleme modellieren zu können.
Computational Fluid Dynamics I+ II (VL, S) - provide basic knowledge in physical flow modeling and turbulence - mathematical realizations, i.e., numerical methods - overview of numerical techniques of practical relevance, capability of selecting a model for specific applications (strenghts and weaknesses of various model classes) - practice with state-of-the-art models
Energiemeteorologie I (Solar) - Providing a solid understanding of physical processes governing the surface solar irradiance available for solar energy applications - Developing skills in solar radiation modeling, i.e., expertise in application, adaptation and development of models - Solid knowledge in state-of-the-art-methods in satellite-based irradiance estimation and solar power forecasting - Detailed understanding of the influence of meteorological/climatological aspects on the performance of solar energy systems
Energy Meteorology II (Wind) - Detailed understanding of the influence of meteorological/climatological aspects on the performance of wind power systems - Solid knowledge of physical processes governing atmospheric wind flows - Understanding atmospheric boundary layer flow relevant for wind power conversion - Knowledge in methods for wind resource assessment and foercasting
Windenergy I/Windenergy II The students acquire an advanced knowledge in the field of wind energy applications. Special emphasis is on connecting physical and technical skills with the know-how in the fields of logistics, management, environment, finances, and economy. Practice-oriented examples enable the students to assess and classify real wind energy projects. Special situations such as offshore wind farms and wind farms in non-European foreign countries are included to give the students an insight into the crucial aspects of wind energy also relating to non-trivial realizations as well as to operating wind farm projects.
Solar Energy Solar Energy conveys knowledge about Photovoltaic and Solar Thermal systems and components. The students learn to dimension and economically evaluate installations, on both a general and detailed level with the help of software. Furthermore, the students will gain insight into the physical and engineering processes for solar energy utilization.
