Creating the Future...Challenging the Impossible
This course uses fundamentals learned during the energy systems course to solve more applied problems related to energy and power as well as covering energy topics not discussed in the Clean Energy Technology Systems course. Students will use combinations of chemical and solar energy principles to create, store, and use energy to power a variety of mechanical and electrical devices. Key concepts introduced in this course include nuclear power, steam generation, fuel cells, geothermal power, water power, AC/DC power generation, heat transfer, and the laws of thermodynamics. Students engage in a variety of hands-on design projects to demonstrate course principles.
