AbstractThis module presents the conditions for and characteristics of integrating various systems and network industries. It deploys examples from goods and passenger transport, e.g. the complete automation of the railway system and the integration of new energy sources. Participants can apply selected analyses to concrete issues in their own practice.
Objective- Ability to systematically optimise / develop transport systems, products, services and processes with an eye to selected ecological, economic, social, spatial and temporal aspects
- Ability to deploy the potential of technologies (software and hardware) for future-ready, integrated transport solutions and familiarity with the relevant framework conditions
- Ability to regulate transport systems and their digitisation
Content- Primary energies – transport functions – infrastructure
- Framework conditions and drivers of usage interfaces
- Adaptation and change in the transport system; the role of regulation
- Automation of a traffic system in the motor vehicle network – infrastructure by way of a railway case study
- Human-machine interaction in conventional and automated railway operation
- Logistics of current and future potential energy sources
- Electricity as an energy source for transport (roads), requirements for electricity production and network stability (amount, time, location)
- Alignment with / steering according to demand; role of the fast-charging station
- Decentral power supply and storage in connection with electromobility charging infrastructure, with laboratory component

Cases
- Cargo Sous Terrain (S. E. Jacobsen)
- railCare – Intermodal goods transport (P. Wegmüller)
- Setup of a power supply (electricity) for transport, and crosslinking with electricity production (D. Brand)
- Hydrogen as an energy source in transport and its potential for seasonal energy storage (P. Dietrich)

AbstractThis 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.
ObjectiveParticipants 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.
ContentThis 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. For details of the program see the webpage of the colloquium. Students and other guests are welcome.
Lecture notesThere is no script, but a short protocol of the sessions will be sent to all participants who have participated in a particular session. Transparencies of the presentations may be put on the course webpage.
LiteratureLiterature will be provided by the speakers in their respective presentations.
Prerequisites / NoticeParticipants should have relatively good mathematical skills and some experience of how scientific work is performed.
