This course is an introduction to a wide range of electrical energy systems technologies. Topics include fundamentals of energy conversion, which includes large- and small-scale generation, energy storage, and end-use. Processes include coal, nuclear, solar, wind, hydro, and biomass and their application in central and distributed power systems. The power grid, micro-grids, and smart grid technologies are also explored. The goal is to introduce students to the breadth of technology in the rapidly growing and changing field of energy systems.
