    • Dr.-Ing. Herena Torio

    Thursday: 08:00 - 12:00, weekly (from 04/04/24)

    The module “Sustainability of RE Systems” provides the theoretical background for understanding main concepts and interdisciplinary scientific methods from the context as well as their role in the sustainability debate. Main topics and methods which are focus of the course are: - Strategies and dimensions in sustainability research and discussion: efficiency, consistency and sufficiency, as well as related concepts (e.g. rebound) - Growth/De-growth and decoupling of growth and emission - Life-cycle analysis - Thermodynamic methods: exergy, EROI and related approaches - Social indicators and their relation to energy use - Economic indicators and related paradigms in the context of energy consumption - Resilience and its operationalisation for energy systems - Methods for developing and assess socio-technical scenarios After successful completion of the module students should be able to: - analyse, and critically compare and evaluate selected sustainability concepts and strategies addressing renewable energy systems - critically appraise and analyse the principles and implications of selected scientific methods and theories for a sustainable energy supply - critically evaluate the suitability and meaningfulness of different sustainability indicators, theories, methods and practices regarding their role and impact for developed countries, on the one hand, and developing countries, on the other - perform an integral assessment, involving several relevant aspects related to the sustainability of a particular real-life renewable energy project as well as identify the main barriers, potentials and driving factors for improving it - perform a literature review on selected sustainability approaches to a professional standard and extract the main related conclusions, and arguing critically on them - present data and information both verbally and in the written form, including quotation to a professional standard

    Teaching and learning in this component will be through "hands on" demonstration. This form of teaching and learning is important in acquiring competence and skills and advancing understanding by practical experience. The students learn to consider specific key instrument types in current usage in the field of photonics, laser and optics. This will be delivered in a lab course study format with each instrument being evaluated in terms of operating principle, design, and signal processing. Content: Laser design and concepts in photonics, solid state lasers, tunable laser systems, gas lasers, industrial laser systems, laser material processing, micromachining, diode lasers, mode locked fiber lasers, microscopy and photonics instrumentation. Important: This is a practical lab course which is not offered in Oldenburg, but at the Universtity of Applied Sciences in Emden. Laboratory experiments are performed in groups of two students each. In order to be able to participate in this course, it is mandatory to have a laser safety training. I will post time and location of the laser safety training and send an additional mail.

    The Laser-Safety Instructions are mandatory to everyone who is working in the optical laboratories in Emden. A refreshment is needed every year. Usually, the instructions are offered twice in a semester, usually at the beginning. The instructions are not specific for a certain course, but we try to implement it there. Make sure, that you join one of the courses. You can even join it a semester ahead if you don't know when you are starting a project. In-between instructions are not offered. The introductions are required: Summer semester 5.04.632 Basic Laboratory II (BA) 5.04.4671 - Tools in Advanced Photonics (MA) Winter Semester 5.04.6570 Fundamentals of Optics (MA) 5.04.637 Laboratory Project I (BA) 5.04.646a Laboratory Project II - Laser & Optics (BA) General Internships Bachelor's Theses in the field of Laser & Optics Master's Theses in the field of Laser & Optics

Skills to be acquired in this module
This module aims to raise the students understanding of the strategic, leadership, and technical aspects of project management and their role in adding competitive advantage to any enterprise. Concepts and techniques for programme and project management are introduced, developed and applied, with the aid of relevant case material.
The students learn to consider specific key instrument types in current usage. This will be delivered in a project study format with each instrument being evaluated in terms of operating principle, design, and signal processing.
