151-0235-00L | Thermodynamics of Novel Energy Conversion Technologies | 4 KP | 3G | A. Milionis, G. Sansavini | |

Kurzbeschreibung | In the framework of this course we will look at a current electronic thermal and energy management strategies and novel energy conversion processes. The course will focus on component level fundamentals of these process and system level analysis of interactions among various energy conversion components. | ||||

Lernziel | This course deals with liquid cooling based thermal management of electronics, reuse of waste heat, surface engineering aspects for improving heat transfer, and novel energy conversion and storage systems such as batteries and, fuel cells. The focus of the course is on the physics and basic understanding of those systems as well as their real-world applications. The course will also look at analysis of system level interactions between a range of energy conversion components. | ||||

Inhalt | Part 1: Fundamentals: - Overview of exergy analysis, Single phase cooling and micro-mixing; - Thermodynamics of phase equilibrium and Electrochemistry; - Surface wetting; Part 2: Applications: - Basic principles of battery and fuel cells; -Thermal management and reuse of waste heat from microprocessors - Condensation heat transfer; Part3: System-level analysis - Integration of the components into the system: a case study - Analysis of the coupled operations, identification of critical states - Support to system-oriented design | ||||

Skript | Lecture slides will be made available. | ||||

151-1633-00L | Energy ConversionThis course is intended for students outside of D-MAVT. | 4 KP | 3G | I. Karlin, G. Sansavini | |

Kurzbeschreibung | This course provides the students with an introduction to thermodynamics and heat transfer. Students shall gain basic understanding of energy, energy interactions, and various mechanisms of heat transfer as well as their link to energy conversion technologies. | ||||

Lernziel | Thermodynamics is key to understanding and use of energy conversion processes in Nature and technology. Main objective of this course is to give a compact introduction into basics of Thermodynamics: Thermodynamic states and thermodynamic processes; Work and Heat; First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics. Students shall learn how to use energy balance equation in the analysis of power cycles and shall be able to evaluate efficiency of internal combustion engines, gas turbines and steam power plants. The course shall extensively use thermodynamic charts to building up students’ intuition about opportunities and restrictions to increase useful work output of energy conversion. Thermodynamic functions such as entropy, enthalpy and free enthalpy shall be used to understand chemical and phase equilibrium. The course also gives introduction to refrigeration cycles, combustion and psychrometry, as well as to basic principles of heat transfer. The course compactly covers the standard course of thermodynamics for engineers, with additional topics of a general physics interest (nonideal gas equation of state and Joule-Thomson effect) also included. | ||||

Inhalt | 1. Thermodynamic systems, states and state variables 2. Properties of substances: Water, air and ideal gas 3. Energy conservation in closed and open systems: work, internal energy, heat and enthalpy 4. Second law of thermodynamics and entropy 5. Energy analysis of steam power cycles 6. Energy analysis of gas power cycles 7. Refrigeration and heat pump cycles 8. Nonideal gas equation of state and Joule-Thomson effect 9. Maximal work and exergy 10. Mixtures and psychrometry 11. Chemical reactions and combustion systems; chemical and phase equilibrium 12. Heat transfer | ||||

Kurzbeschreibung | This course is a mixture between a seminar primarily for PhD and postdoc students and a colloquium involving invited speakers. It consists of presentations and subsequent discussions in the area of modeling complex socio-economic systems and crises. Students and other guests are welcome. | ||||

Lernziel | Participants should learn to get an overview of the state of the art in the field, to present it in a well understandable way to an interdisciplinary scientific audience, to develop novel mathematical models for open problems, to analyze them with computers, and to defend their results in response to critical questions. In essence, participants should improve their scientific skills and learn to work scientifically on an internationally competitive level. | ||||
