|Objective||The students should become familiar with the fundamentals and with application examples of chemically reactive processes in energy conversion (combustion engines in particular) as well as the synthesis of new materials. The lecture is part of the focus "Energy, Flows & Processes" on the Bachelor level and is recommended as a basis for a future Master in the area of energy. It is also a facultative lecture on Master level in Energy Science and Technology and Process Engineering.|
|Content||Reaction kinetics, fuel oxidation mechanisms, premixed and diffusion laminar flames, two-phase-flows, turbulence and turbulent combustion, pollutant formation, applications in combustion engines. Synthesis of materials in flame processes: particles, pigments and nanoparticles. Fundamentals of design and optimization of flame reactors, effect of reactant mixing on product characteristics. Tailoring of products made in flame spray pyrolysis.|

|4 credits||3G||K. Boulouchos|
|Abstract||The module provides a foundation in the current situation and short- and middle-term development directions of powertrain and automotive engineering in the context of passenger & goods transport. Corresponding energy sources and resulting consequences for the energy system are addressed. Participants will be enabled to identify potentials of these technologies and apply them to concrete problems.|
|Objective||Familiarity with conventional and alternative powertrain and automotive systems for future sustainable mobility, and the ability to identify and deploy their potential to address concrete problems.|
|Content||- Drive component efficiency rates and core fields|
- Drive and non-drive energy flow / Vehicle "driving resistance"
- Energy chains (operating power only) and CO2 emissions to primary energy
|Lecture notes||Distributed at start of module|
|Literature||Distributed at start of module|
|Prerequisites / Notice||Announced to students of the of the MAS / CAS at the beginning of the term|
