M E 406: Alternative Energy Systems
This course does a qualitative and quantitative survey of various
alternate energy methods for power generation. It contains first-order
analysis of some of the systems such as alternatives to harness wind
power through wind turbines, solar-based systems - active and passive
solar, flat-plate solar collectors, photovoltaic systems, biofuels, and
energy from organic waste such as biomass, landfills and municipal solid
waste, geothermal systems, and hydro-power. A project based on a
renewable energy system is part of this course.
