Course Description

This is an introductory level course in the generation, distribution, and management of electrical energy in the context of Green Engineering. This course presents the essential components and operating features of the power industry so that those components and features can be used effectively with emerging technologies of energy capture (i.e. solar, wind, geothermal, etc.). Upon successful completion of this course, students should have a firm understanding of the structure and components of an electrical power system and be able to model such systems and determine associated power flows, efficiencies, and energy budgets. Methods of assessment include homework, quizzes, tests, and a short paper on one of the topics related to the course.
