This course is an introduction to various sources of energy and their process of extraction. Nonrenewable versus renewable energy sources and their harvesting technology will be studied. This will include wind, solar, fuel cells, biomass, geothermal, hydropower, and ocean energy. Most emphasis will be on renewable energy sources such as wind and solar, geothermal and oceanic energy technology and their harvesting systems. There will also be modeling simulation and analysis of wind and solar energy harvesting systems. Permission of instructor required.
