Operations Research in Energy Economics

Teaching methods Lecture
Learning target

Qualitative and quantitative methods of management science/Operational Research are gaining ever higher importance in the energy sector e.g. optimization problems play a prominent role in energy economics, considering for example development of power plant fleets, development of grids and the usage of power plants. Students learn about the background of forecasting methods and optimization as mathematical tool for analysing power systems. They are able to formulate mathematical models and to apply optimization methods, e.g. linear programming.
Within module ECM-02 the students also apply the knowledge and competencies gained in economics and business strategy gained so far. Within required elective courses the students deepen and expand their capabilities when implementing a revised business strategy and experience the impact on an enterprise as a whole or when analysing and further developing energy management solutions in industry.

Project Planning of Energy Facilities

Teaching methods Lecture/seminar/lab
Learning target

Energy facilities must be looked on having technical, economical, legislative and operational requirements in mind, which according to the long life time of the facilities eventually change several times, e.g. because of changing emission and/or safety standards, etc. The students learn about the impact of such changes and are able to anticipate proper reaction to future developments by means of a business game.
Designing of energy facilities is complex and therefore supported by Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) Tools instead of building plant models in small scale. The students learn about the application of Computer Aided Design (CAD) in project planning of energy facilities, especially about object-oriented tools, which support processes lasting from first design until delivery of parts.

    The concept of the (board) game is that students will "be in charge" for an already existing company. They act as members of the management
    board. This means the following steps and tasks:
    a strategic concept has to be developed (which will be realized during the coming 5 business years); this concept has to be transferred to the functional areas and its decisionmaking; the company has to be controlled by using common ratios.
    Additionally aspects of team management are also covered in context of
    the game.

    Type Lecture/seminar
    Nr. M+V3032
    Hours per week 2.0
    Lecture contents

    The course is designed to provide a fundamental basis for management and leadership in the information age. It will introduce a scientific and philosophical approach to management and explore the historical origins of an analytical methodology that allows profound insight into the behaviour of processes and systems. It will teach that management is prediction and provide an understanding of a methodology for transforming raw data into knowledge in order to secure a sound basis for future action. Case histories will demonstrate how the costly errors of inappropriate action and sub-optimisation can be avoided and how a scientific basis for continual improvement and sustainable competitiveness is achieved.

    The concept of the (board) game is that students will "be in charge" for an already existing company. They act as members of the management
    board. This means the following steps and tasks:
    a strategic concept has to be developed (which will be realized during the coming 5 business years); this concept has to be transferred to the functional areas and its decisionmaking; the company has to be controlled by using common ratios.
    Additionally aspects of team management are also covered in context of
    the game.

    Managing Complexity
    Type Lecture/seminar
    Nr. M+V3032
    Hours per week 2.0
    Lecture contents

    The course is designed to provide a fundamental basis for management and leadership in the information age. It will introduce a scientific and philosophical approach to management and explore the historical origins of an analytical methodology that allows profound insight into the behaviour of processes and systems. It will teach that management is prediction and provide an understanding of a methodology for transforming raw data into knowledge in order to secure a sound basis for future action. Case histories will demonstrate how the costly errors of inappropriate action and sub-optimisation can be avoided and how a scientific basis for continual improvement and sustainable competitiveness is achieved.

    Managing Complexity
    Type Lecture/seminar
    Nr. M+V3032
    Hours per week 2.0
    Lecture contents

    The course is designed to provide a fundamental basis for management and leadership in the information age. It will introduce a scientific and philosophical approach to management and explore the historical origins of an analytical methodology that allows profound insight into the behaviour of processes and systems. It will teach that management is prediction and provide an understanding of a methodology for transforming raw data into knowledge in order to secure a sound basis for future action. Case histories will demonstrate how the costly errors of inappropriate action and sub-optimisation can be avoided and how a scientific basis for continual improvement and sustainable competitiveness is achieved.

    Lecture contents

    The concept of the (board) game is that students will "be in charge" for an already existing company. They act as members of the management
    board. This means the following steps and tasks:
    a strategic concept has to be developed (which will be realized during the coming 5 business years); this concept has to be transferred to the functional areas and its decisionmaking; the company has to be controlled by using common ratios.
    Additionally aspects of team management are also covered in context of
    the game.

    Scientific Project

    Teaching methods internship
    Learning target

    Within the Scientific Project the foreign students shall experience the working culture of companies or institutions working in the energy sector whereas the German students shall explore international aspects of the energy sector. The students shall apply their theoretical knowledge when working on a first scientific question. After completing the Scientific Project the student shall understand the strong interaction between economics and technology in the energy sector.

    Scientific Skills

    Teaching methods Lecture/seminar
    Learning target

    The students are able to perform systematically literature research. They are able to develop a structure for a scientific paper based on argumentation models. The student are aware of standards in scientific writing and apply them when writing own papers.
    Within the language part of the module students, who are not native German speakers, shall become proficient in German. Depending on their pre-knowledge those students should at least take "Deutsch als Fremdsprache 3 (DaF3)". Students, who are already proficient in German, shall first use the language courses to get proficient in English. Following that, students might choose other languages.

    Thermal Power Systems

    Teaching methods Lecture
    Learning target

    The students know in-depth fluid dynamics and mechanics of thermal turbo-machinery. They know about different types of steam generators and understand their requirements with respect to fluid mechanics and heat exchange in two-phase-flow. The students are aware of instabilities, which can occur when operating steam generators. The students are able to formulate a specification sheet for the main components of thermal power plants. Optimization strategies for the operating conditions of power plants can be judged and examined in a qualified way.
