Electrical and Mechanical Engineering (Tropical Engineering) (One Semester
The course aims to introduce the basic concepts, principles, uses and challenges of various renewable energy sources and devices including bio-energy, solar energy, wind energy, micro-hydro, wave and tidal power, geothermal and fuel cells. Students will develop the ability to identify, formulate and solve simple to complex problems of renewable energy conversion. Students will know and understand contemporary issues pertaining to energy, environment and society from global perspectives.
The main goals of this class include students gain an understanding of the practical use and challenges as well as cost-benefit ratios of various alternative energy sources, in order to see what is feasible on a large scale and what is not. Students are also expected to understand some of the various obstacles associated with actual implementation of production line alternative energy facilities. Upon the completion of this program students are able to do calculations regarding the cost of energy usage and the required infrastructure to deliver a certain amount of power.
