E44 EECE 413 Energy Conversion and Storage

This course takes a thermodynamics perspective to analyzing electricity production and distribution systems, which are imperative to modern society. The course contains a hands-on laboratory component. Traditional and advanced heat engine cycles will be discussed. Opportunities and challenges with renewable energy technologies will be covered. Essential to the widespread adoption of renewable electricity sources, and also to increasing energy efficiency, are smart grid and smart building technologies. The goal is to give the student a quantitative overview, while focusing in on the details of a few important technological examples. Prerequisites: E44 EECE 203 or E37 MEMS 301 and E44 EECE 301 or E37 MEMS 3410; or instructor permission.

Credit 3 units. EN: TU
