Course work and exam formalities

Active participation in the lab course; preparation of experiment reports or colloquia. In the oral or written module exam before and during every experiment, the students demonstrate whether they are able to structure their acquired knowledge and to present the substantial aspects (30%). During the lab, it is evaluated to what extend the studens are able to practically apply the methods they are acquired in theory (40%). With reports and in colloquia, the participants show wether they are able to describe and interpret the acquired information and wether they are able to translate it into other problems (30%).


Process techniques for electricity and heat generation; Measurement and arrangement of energy balances and characteristic curves; Technical criteria for energetic assessment of process control; steam turbine process, lamp measurement, combined heat and power, fuel cell
