Energy, Mobility and Environmental Management


Integrated course, 3.00 ECTS


Course content

The lecture builds on the basic concepts of thermodynamics (state, state variable, process) to teach the first and second laws of thermodynamics. State variables and thermodynamic processes are visually represented in state diagrams (Ts, hs, pv). The thermodynamic properties of working media such as water/steam, ideal gases and gas mixtures are presented. The Carnot cycle is used as an example of an ideal reference process.

Learning outcomes

Module NWG2 provides more detailed knowledge of the technical subjects of electrical engineering, thermodynamics and applied mathematics and statistics covered in Module NWG1. Students also learn to use CAD tools in planning and design and are made familiar with the physical properties of building materials relevant for the degree programme.
