The practical course focuses on various energy- related topics, like energy production, energy conversion and energy consumption. The teaching content includes experiments in the field of renewable energy production, but also exercises for energy conversion (chemical, mechanical, electrical) and efficient energy consumption. In the practical course selected exercises from this themes are executed. The practical course focuses also on sustainable energy consumption.
The practical course consists of 4 stations (wind turbine test facility, high temperature heat pump test bench, engine test bench and fan test bench).

For each station, a protocol has to be prepared.

Previous knowledge expected

Basic knowledge in energy technologies, but also in the fields of mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and measurement engineering. Following LVA's are recommended for the practical course:
1) Process engineering I and II
2) Energy and environment engineering
3) Energy engineering

Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)

The focus of the course objects the practical application of theoretical knowledge in the areas of process engineering, energy engineering and measurement engineering.
Practical experience in case of sustainable energy production, energy conversion and energy consumption.
