Thermal Fluid Machinery

In the first part of the lecture, the subsection Energy Systems deals with questions of worldwide energy resources and their use, especially in the provision of electrical energy. In addition to typical fossil and nuclear power plants for centralized power supply, concepts of combined heat and power generation for decentralized supply by means of combined heat and power plants etc. are discussed and equally the characteristics and potential of regenerative energy conversion concepts, such as wind and water power, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, geothermal energy and fuel cells are discussed and compared.
The focus is on the presentation of the potentials, the risks and the economic efficiency of the different strategies for the conservation of resources and the avoidance of CO2 emissions.


Students will be able to:

  • discuss and evaluate energy resources and reserves and their applications
  • evaluate the use of energy sources for the provision of electrical energy
  • explain the concepts and properties of cogeneration, regenerative energy conversion and fuel cells and their fields of application
  • explain and compare centralized and decentralized supply concepts
  • weigh the potentials, risks and economic efficiency of different strategies for resource conservation and CO2 reduction
  • name and evaluate the possibilities of solar energy use
  • discuss the potential of geothermal energy and its use
