Hydrogen, Fuels and Electrolysers

The course is focused on the "The Hydrogen (production, storage, handling), fuels (P2G, P2X)" and aims to introduce hydrogen (technologies) production and fuels to students and provide them with the basic science behind the processes involved. > more information.


Processes Energy and Materials Modeling

All products and product systems have impacts on the environment. One of the main challenges for a sustainable future is to significantly reduce the environmental impacts of products and product systems. This course focuses on methodology to quantify and analyze the environmental impacts of products and product systems. The course offers different modeling techniques and approaches to assess a range of environmental impacts. > more information.


Thermodynamics of Energy Conversion

The student is able to evaluate the thermodynamic performance of various conversion processes and systems by applying the exergy concept and to identify ways to reduce overall exergy losses of frequently applied processes and systems. > more information.


Experimental Methods in Trace Gas Research

Subjects covered: basic concepts of optical diagnostics, direct absorption, laser induced fluorescence, cavity ringdown spectroscopy, fourier-transform spectroscopy, particle diagnostics. Systems Subjects covered: generalized measurement systems, static characteristics of measurement systems, accuracy of measurement systems, dynamic characteristics of measurement systems, loading effects, 2-port networks, signal and noise, sensing elements, signal conditioning elements, signal processing elements. > more information.


Physical and Chemical Kinetics

The main objective of this course is to present the complex phenomena taking place in fluids and plasma’s using the uniform approach based on describing the evolution of the distribution function. The main attention will be spent to clarify the link between elementary processes and macroscopical properties of the substance. The taught subjects will be illustrated by the examples taken from current experimental and theoretical research topics in nanoscience, plasma physics, fluid dynamics and combustion. > more information.
