Experiments in PV and Wind Technology

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Experiments in PV and Wind Technology
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Energy system technology / Renewable energies, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2022
Module code: EE1636
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
1V+3LU (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 5
Mandatory course: no
Language of instruction:
Preparation of lab protocols and presentation of a selected lab report. The evaluation of the module is Pass/Fail

[updated 22.05.2023]
Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

EE1636 (P212-0089) Energy system technology / Renewable energies, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2022 , semester 5, optional course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 150 hours (equivalent to 5 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 105 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to understand and experimentally verify the basic physical effects of photovoltaics and wind energy technology. In addition, at the end of the module, they will be able to determine and classify uncertainties in measurement results themselves, and to present the results of experiments in a scientific manner.
