Practical Placement

In the summer semester the following tests are used as practical placement and APMB tests in Mechanical Engineering/Vehicle- and Engine Technology/Technology Management and as a deepening internship in Energy Systems Engineering:

  • Determining of the surface temperature field and the emissivity of a model facade by means of an infrared camera
  • Determination of the efficiency curve and power curve of a solar flat plate collector
  • Determination of the performance coefficient of a water/water heat pump
  • Performance measurement on a heat exchanger in co-and counter current
  • Electronic determination of the indicator diagram of a Stirling cycle engine model
  • Operation of a battery-fuel cell hybrid system
  • Function and performance of a compression refrigeration system
  • Function and efficiency of a mini CHP plant

Note: Calculator and protractor / ruler must be brought to trial. At the beginning of the experiment, understanding questions will be asked. With insufficient knowledge or preparation the participation is denied.
