Alternative Energy Ii
This course deals with alternative energy sources including solar energy, wind energy, and
hydropower. It also covers the optimization of energy use in buildings.
To familiarize the students about the utilization of advance alternative sources of energy technologies for thermal and electrical needs with environmental merits.
At the end of this course, the student should be able to:
- Analyze energy technologies from a systems perspective.
- Articulate the technical challenges for each of the renewable sources and
- Discuss economic, technical and sustainability issues involved in the integration of renewable energy systems.
A student on completing this course is expected to analyze and design energy systems to
- supply the electricity/heat/cooling requirements using wind energy, hydro and solar energy.
