In the module "Renewable Energy Systems", a broad overview of the different forms of regenerative energy supply from solar thermal energy to hydropower and geothermal energy systems is given for the main topic "Regenerative Energies". The module is motivated at the beginning with short overviews on the topics of climate change, scarcity of resources (especially "peak oil"), environmental protection and sustainability - social and economic consequences as well as ethical aspects are touched upon. Furthermore, topic-specific physical knowledge (e.g. thermodynamics, semiconductor physics, ...) is repeated and deepened.

General knowledge of physics and chemistry is assumed.

The module "Renewable Energy Systems" is an elective course of the 4th semester in the bachelor programs Electrical Engineering and Industrial Engineering/Electrical Engineering. The module consists of lectures, seminars (depending on the number of students) and exercises with a total of 4 SWS. 5 credit points are awarded for the module.

Form of examination:
Written exam (90 min.) at the end of the semester in the pre- or postterm.

Supervision, communication, material:
The module documents, additional materials and information will be made available via the ILIAS platform.


Current literature references to the contents of the module will be announced at the beginning of the lecture.
