As part of the course “Power Plant Technology”, students from TU Freiberg went for an excursion to the LEAG power station “Schwarze Pumpe” on January 10, 2020.
It started at the LEAG visitor center. Here, a multimedia exhibition about the energy industry explains vividly how electricity gets reliably into the socket.
The actual power plant tour followed. Since the participating students specialize in the field of energy process engineering, the tour was a bit more technical than normal. Besides asking many questions, they also had the opportunity to visit many technical systems, such as coal supply, steam turbines, cooling tower and flue gas cleaning.
On the way home, everyone agreed that this trip into practice and the collected impressions were an enrichment for everyone.
The CampusTag (open day) on January 9th offered valuable information and exciting experiments.
For the Institute of Energy Process Engineering and Chemical Engineering (IEC), M.Sc. Michaela Nguyen and M.Sc. Philip Rößger were on site, answering your questions and helding many consultations about the choice of study location and subject.
Of particular interest was the new hands-on experiment “A fluidized bed you can touch”, which illustrates the principle of fluidization. In a box full of sand, a fluidized bed is created with the help of pressurized air. Now, the solid behaves like a liquid. This phenomenon has a lot of advantages in technical applications due to the good mass and heat transfer.
You haven’t tried it yet? Take the chance at our next CampusTag in May!
