Unformatted text preview: transmit electrical power. Explain the role of “demand control” and the “smart grid” in the context of plug-in hybrid vehicles. What are potential advantages of the electrification of transportation vehicles from an energy and grid perspective? Describe the battery and power system of the Ford Fusion that was brought to campus as a demonstration vehicle. Sketch the energy level diagram of either a photovoltaic device or a photoelectrochemical cell, and explain what the utility of the device is. What problem is shared by these devices, as well as leaves, in capturing energy in a useful form? What is the trend in the distribution of global wealth? What is the trend in the energy intensity of GDP, especially in the more technically advanced countries? What is Pelke's "Iron Law"? How does he suggest getting around this law?...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
