AbstractThe lecture contains concepts, physics and components of building technologies for the efficient and sustainable energy supply and climatisation of buildings and their interaction with architecture and urban design. Using calculations, students learn to aquire relevant numbers and assess the performance of solutions.
ObjectiveThe lecture series focuses on the physical principles and technical components of relevant systems for an efficient and sustainable climatisation and energy supply of buildings. A special focus is on the interrelation of supply systems and architectural design and construction. Learning and practicing methods of quantifying demand and supply allows identifying parameters relevant for design.
Content1. Introduction
2. Heating and cooling
3. Active and passive ventilation
4. Electricity in buildings
Lecture notesThe Slides from the lecture serve as lecture notes and are available as download.
LiteratureA list of relevant literature is available at the chair.
051-1219-16LIntegrated Discipline Building Systems (A. Schlüter) Information Restricted registration - show details 3 credits2UA. Schlüter
AbstractThe integrated discipline Building Systems adresses specific questions about building systems and system concepts. Energetic analysis and system designs are carried out on the students individual design projects.
ObjectiveThe course aims for an ability to understand concepts of sustainable building technology coherently integrated into an architectural design. The focus lies on LowEx-systems.
ContentThe integrated discipline Building Systems adresses specific questions about building systems and system concepts. Energetic analysis and system designs are carried out on the students individual design projects.
Lecture notesSkripts are specific to the design task and distributed at the beginning of the course.
Prerequisites / NoticePlease contact the tutor as soon as possible at the beginning of the semester; we will set the task according to your chosen design studio.

Having passed the lecture series of Energy and Climate Systems I & II or Technical Installations I & II respectively is required for attending the Integrated Discipline.
063-0115-16LArchitecture and Building Systems (Thesis Elective) Information Restricted registration - show details 6 credits11AA. Schlüter
AbstractThe knowledge gained from the lecture series of technical installations will be applied in this elective course work. Focusing on specific questions, this knowledge will be deepened. Each topic will be individually discussed with each student. Based on the design of studios or other projects, a building will be examined with the goal of emissions-free building operation.
ObjectiveThe objectives are to understand the challenges that arise with these aspects of sustainability, to dimension the resulting technical systems and components, and to implement this in architecture.

066-0425-00LIntegrated Design MBS Information 6 credits2V + 2UA. Schlüter
AbstractDuring the integrated design studio students work on a selected integrated architectural / urban design project, considering both energy- and climate systems (HVAC) as well architectural and urban design in a specific site context. The objective is to follow an integrated design process to achieve synergistic solutions.
ObjectiveThe integrated design studio enables students to identify site specific energy demand and potentials, develop integrated energy and climate systems on both the urban and building scale and evaluate their interactions and impact on building design and operation. Retrieving relevant concepts and technologies of energy and HVAC systems, students are able to develop and compare integrated concepts using appropriate methods and digital toolsets and present them to a mixed audience using drawings, renderings and reports.
ContentDuring the studio students will work in groups on a contemporary integrated design project (urban and / or building scale) executing an integrated design process from the analysis of site potentials, the identification of demands, the development of an urban scale energy concept and a matching building energy- and HVAC-systems concept. Input lectures from academics and professionals will highlight specific topics relevant to the task. The projects will be presented by the student groups and discussed with internal and external reviewers at midterm and at the final presentations.
Lecture notesSkripts are specific to the design task and distributed at the beginning of the course.
LiteratureA literature list will be distributed at the beginning of the course.
Prerequisites / NoticeStudents must have successfully passed the first year of MBS studies.
227-1631-00LEnergy System Analysis Information 4 credits3GG. Hug, S. Hellweg, F. Noembrini, A. Schlüter
AbstractThe course provides an introduction to the methods and tools for analysis of energy consumption, energy production and energy flows. Environmental aspects are included as well as economical considerations. Different sectors of the society are discussed, such as electric power, buildings, and transportation. Models for energy system analysis planning are introduced.
ObjectiveThe purpose of the course is to give the participants an overview of the methods and tools used for energy systems analysis and how to use these in simple practical examples.
ContentThe course gives an introduction to methods and tools for analysis of energy consumption, energy production and energy flows. Both larger systems, e.g. countries, and smaller systems, e.g. industries, homes, vehicles, are studied. The tools and methods are applied to various problems during the exercises. Different conventions of energy statistics used are introduced.

The course provides also an introduction to energy systems models for developing scenarios of future energy consumption and production. Bottom-up and Top-Down approaches are addressed and their features and applications discussed.

The course contains the following parts:
Part I: Energy flows and energy statistics
Part II: Environmental impacts
Part III: Electric power systems
Part IV: Energy in buildings
Part V: Energy in transportation
Part VI: Energy systems models
