Goals and Outline

The lecture addresses students in the fields of mechanical engineering, energy technologies, mechatronics and information technology. A comprehensive introduction is given in the basics and current developments in this new and very dynamically evolving field. The lecture is (supplementary/compulsory) in the master courses of „Energietechnik“ and „Energy Technologies (ENTECH)“ and supplementary in the major of „Mechatronics and Microsystems Technology“ in Mechanical Engineering.
 

Course: 
Mechanical Engineering: Major M&M
Energy Technologies: NN
Energietechnik: NN
 

Outline:

  • Basic physical principles of energy conversion
  • Layout and design optimization
