Wind and Hydropower Energy Conversion (3) Principles of sustainability and renewable energy conversion with emphasis on wind and hydrokinetic energy resources.
EGEE 438 Wind and Hydropower Energy Conversion (3)
This course examines the principles of sustainability and renewable energy conversion with emphasis on wind and hydrokinetic energy resources. Concentration is placed on the relationships between the renewable resources, conversion technology and economic feasibility along with consideration of the associated risks and environmental impacts. It will complement existing energy engineering courses on fossil fuel and solar energy conversion. Students will actively participate in learning through team projects, semester papers, class presentations, and field trips. This is a required course in the energy engineering major. The course will be offered every spring with an expected enrollment of 60 students.
