227-0160-00LFundamentals of Physical Modeling and Simulations6 KP2V + 2U + 1PJ. Smajic
KurzbeschreibungMathematical description of different physical phenomena and numerical methods for solving the obtained equations are discussed. The course presents the fundamentals of mathematical modeling including ordinary and partial differential equations along with boundary and initial conditions. Finite Difference Method and Finite Element Method for solving boundary value problems are shown in detail.
LernzielAfter completing this course a student will understand the main idea of representing physical phenomena with mathematical equations, will be able to apply an appropriate numerical method for solving the obtained equations, and will possess the knowledge to qualitatively evaluate the obtained results.

227-0536-00LMultiphysics Simulations for Power Systems Information
This course is defined so and planned to be an addition to the module "227-0537-00L Technology of Electric Power System Components".
However, the students who are familiar with the fundamentals of electromagnetic fields could attend only this course without its 227-0537-00-complement.

KurzbeschreibungThe goals of this course are a) understanding the fundamentals of the electromagnetic, thermal, mechanical, and coupled field simulations and b) performing effective simulations of primary equipment of electric power systems. The course is understood complementary to 227-0537-00L "Technology of Electric Power System Components", but can also be taken separately.
LernzielThe student should learn the fundamentals of the electromagnetic, thermal, mechanical, and coupled fields simulations necessary for modern product development and research based on virtual prototyping. She / he should also learn the theoretical background of the finite element method (FEM) and its application to low- and high-frequency electromagnetic field simulation problems. The practical exercises of the course should be done by using one of the commercially available field simulation software (Infolytica, ANSYS, and / or COMSOL). After completing the course the student should be able to properly and efficiently use the software to simulate practical design problems and to understand and interpret the obtained results.

227-0707-00LOptimization Methods for Engineers3 KP2GJ. Smajic
KurzbeschreibungErste Semesterhälfte: Einführung in die wichtigsten Methoden der numerischen Optimierung mit Schwerpunkt auf stochastischen Verfahren wie genetische Algorithmen, evolutionäre Strategien, etc.
Zweite Semesterhälfte: Jeder Teilnehmer implementiert ein ausgewähltes Optimierungsverfahren und wendet es auf ein praktisches Problem an.
LernzielNumerische Optimierung spielt eine zunehmende Rolle sowohl bei der Entwicklung technischer Produkte als auch bei der Entwicklung numerischer Methoden. Die Studenten sollen lernen, geeignete Verfahren auszuwählen, weiter zu entwickeln und miteinander zu kombinieren um so praktische Probleme effizient zu lösen.
InhaltTypische Optimierungsprobleme und deren Tücken werden skizziert. Bekannte deterministische Suchalgorithmen, Verfahren der kombinatorische Minimierung und evolutionäre Algorithmen werden vorgestellt und miteinander verglichen. Da Optimierungsprobleme im Ingenieurbereich oft sehr komplex sind, werden Wege zur Entwicklung neuer, effizienter Verfahren aufgezeigt. Solche Verfahren basieren oft auf einer Verallgemeinerung oder einer Kombination von bekannten Verfahren. Zur Veranschaulichung werden aus dem breiten Anwendungsbereich numerischer Optimierungsverfahren verschiedenartigste praktische Probleme herausgegriffen
