TEC 5607 - Wind and Hydro Power Technology (3)

When Offered: Fall, Spring
This course will introduce students to the basic concepts, tools, techniques and materials needed to design and construct systems that convert wind and hydro resources into electricity. Students will have the opportunity to learn how to measure these renewable resources and to estimate the power that could be produced from them. They will also have the opportunity to learn how to design and construct complete renewable electricity systems and become familiar with many contemporary products used in renewable electricity systems. The course will include classroom and “hands-on” design, construction and possibly some field trip experiences outside of class.
Prerequisites: TEC 1728 (Architectural Graphics and Computer Modeling), TEC 2029 (Society and Technology), TEC 2601 (Energy Issues and Technology), TEC 2708 (Construction Technology and Building Codes), TEC 2718 (Building Mechanical Systems), and TEC 3638 (Foundations of Appropriate Technology) or permission of the instructor.
Lecture two hours, laboratory two hours. [Dual-listed with TEC 4607.]
