Energy systems engineering comprises holistic design, analysis and optimization of energy systems, which are composed of different energetic components like power plants and boilers, heat pumps and refrigerators, heat exchangers and accumulators.

Typical energy systems are buildings, industrial workshops, settlement areas and communes. Their supply with mechanical energy, electricity, space and process heat, refrigeration and other energy-like supply services, such as water and compressed air, can be realised by different energetic components in different circuits. Thereby, many technical solutions result, whose evaluation and optimisation should be based on criteria such as supply security, economic efficiency and environmental friendliness.

The lecture Energy System Engineering imparts the basics of the synthesis of energy producing plants and miscellaneous energetical components to complete systems, as well as to their economical and ecological valuation. This lecture is meant for students of higher semesters who are aware of the contents of the "Energy Economics" lecture.
