TEC 5260 - Renewable Energy Engineering (3)

When Offered: Fall, Even-numbered years
This course covers the science of renewable energy resources; energy conversion processes used in solar, wind, water, and biomass systems; and the engineering and analysis of systems that harvest these resources. Hydrogen and other storage mechanisms will be considered. System outputs, limitations, and optimization will be investigated. The design of both residential- and unity-scale systems will be explored. Software will be used to aid qualitative and quantitative understanding of these systems. The course will include classroom, hands-on design, and field experiences.
