Projects "Energy Systems"

Mastering the design and planning of Energy systems is an asset that any energy engineer must master. The arrangement of a number of complex interrelated components needs to be carefully considered, simulated or tested and optimized. As well economic, ecologic and environmental aspects may not be neglected. Concept realization, process synthesis, economic analysis, exergoeconomic analysis and iterative process improvement, are methods that need to be taught and applied in the module Project Energy Systems.

The planning and design of energy supply systems for power, heat and cold systems forms the focus of this project. The analysis and evaluation under energetically, exergetical, economic and ecologic aspects will also form part of the project. The students will be separated into smaller project groups and cluster the specified problem. The size of the groups depends on the respective topic. to begin with, the problem is outlined and possible solutions are discussed. The participants in the project organize themselves to solve sub-problems on the way to developing the overall solution. They are responsible for their time management, reporting and results. The tutors may also teach several technological topics in addition. Finally, there is a written report and a final presentation. Students are also required to participate in a cross-disciplinary seminar.

The students shall

  • Deepen the thermodynamic, physical, economic and environmental aspects of various energy conversion processes deepen, assess the impact and act responsibly through this knowledge,
  • possess the ability to evaluate innovative techniques,
  • conduct and organize projects in teams and have knowledge in planning, design and optimization of energy conversion processes,
  • increase their skills in problem solving and teamwork,
  • plan, design, analyse, evaluate and optimize a complex energy conversion system.

Dr. Tetyana Morozyuk, Institute for Energy Engineering, Technical University of Berlin


Tetyana Morozyuk is professor at the Institute for Energy Engineering at the Technical University Berlin, Germany. She studied refrigeration engineering in the Odessa State Academy of Refrigeration, Ukraine, and received her Diploma in 1990. She received her Ph.D. in 1994 and a Doctor Habilitatus Degree in 2001, all in Ukraine. Professor Morozyuk has over twenty years teaching experience in the fields of refrigeration and energy engineering (development, design, simulation and analysis of energy conversion processes) and applied thermodynamics (exergy-based methods). She is the author or co-author of 7 books and more than 250 research publications, and has 10 patents. Professor Morozyuk is associated with several scientific organizations (ASME - USA and IIF/IIR – France) as well as many international energy-related conferences and recognized International Journals.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Prof. e.h. Dr. h.c. George Tsatsaronis, Institute for Energy Engineering, Technical University of Berlin


After completion of his Diploma in mechanical engineering at NTU Athens, Greece, Prof. George Tsatsaronis received both MBA, a Ph.D. in combustion, and a Doctor Habilitatus Degree in Thermoeconomics, at RWTH Aachen, Germany. Counting above forty years of experience and related scholastic background Prof. Tsatsaronis is an expert in the fields of exergy-based methods, combustion technology as well as the development, design, simulation and analysis of energy-conversion processes and the optimization of design and operation of energy systems. His contribution to the fundamentals of exergoeconomics is signicant. Apart from publishing over 250 papers and co-editing 20 bound volumes, Prof. Tsatsaronis co-authored the book “Thermal Design and Optimization”, which is base to the modules “Energy Engineering I and II” and “Project Energy Systems”.
