Sustainable Energy Systems

This module will focus on fundamental principles and concepts of energy generation, energy conversion and energy storage systems applied in electrical and electronic systems.

Battery storage systems in combination with solar panels and wind turbines for remote applications will be studied.

Technical aspects of global concerns about the availability of energy sources, sustainability of these sources through exploitation of new technologies or preservation of existing sources, and environmental concerns will be discussed.

The problem of the demand for energy needed for increasing global population and the need for new workable global supplies of affordable sustainable energy systems will be covered.
