Power and Data Engineering (PDE)

Energy Usage in Industrial Processes

Teaching Methods Lecture
Learning objectives / competencies

The students know the essential technologies for energy conversion and storage in industry. They know the boundary conditions for the collection of energy-related data industry. They are able to setup a monitoring platform and to perform a energy flow analysis. Based on the energy flow analysis, they can propose energy efficiency measures.

The students are able to implement an energy management system (e.g. according to DIN EN ISO 50001). The students learn the principles of project management.
