S ustainable E nergy S cience and E ngineering C enter Course Objectives This course is aimed at providing the necessary knowledge to design power systems that use the direct conversion of sun light and Biomass into electricity. The emphasis will be on solar electric power systems for distributed applications. The use of photovoltaics, Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) systems, electrolytic hydrogen production and storage, fuel cells and power control systems in greenhouse gas emissions free energy production strategies are discussed. Power generation and biofuel production using biomass will also discussed. Attention will be paid to systems engineering that include the economics of solar electric power systems installations. Laboratory experiments consisting of: solar cell characterization; photovoltaic system performance measurement and analysis; solar concentrator cogeneration system characterization, Electrolyzer Characterization, Proton Exchange Membranes (PEM) hydrogen fuel cell characterization and Down draft gasifier performance.
