Today was a really technical day at the TU. It started with some light thermodynamics, then a bit of thermal solar energy, solar cooling systems, passive ventilation systems and in the end a presentation on PV-installations.

The lecture on solar cooling was really good, to short because of the tight schedule but complete. Although it is quite heavy material it was brought on a easy way.

As a technical engineer, I was looking forward to this day. In the end I was a bit disappointed about the information we got. For me it could have been more detailed with some do’s and don’t on designing the systems.

After class we met with our group to work on our project. The presentation is on Saturday so there is still some work to be done.
