This preview shows page 8 - 11 out of 14 pages.

1. To make students familiar with the basic energy transfer processes that govern existing and proposed methods of power generation for a global society. [1,6,10] 2. To make students familiar with the traditional and nontraditional fuel sources in terms of energy content, accessibility, required processing steps and projected remaining reserves. [1,8,9,10] 3. To teach the evaluation of heat, work and energy transfer steps associated with advanced power train strategies and stationary power systems. [1,2,5] 4. To teach the fundamental thermodynamics, physics and chemistry relevant to evaluating combustion emissions and efficiencies. [1,5,11] COURSE OUTCOMES: for each course outcome, links to the Course Objectives are identified in brackets. 1. Identify and quantify the important energy transfer for solar, nuclear, fossil fuel combustion and wind power generation schemes. [1,3,4] 2. Quantify the limiting efficiencies for solar, nuclear, fossil fuel combustion and wind power generation schemes. [1,3] 3. Quantify the energy densities/specific energy content of a fuel. [2] 4. Identify the opportunities and challenges of advances in energy carriers used for energy storage and delivery. [1,3] 5. Identify the thermodynamic conditions limiting vehicle emissions using fossil and biofuels. [4] ASSESSMENT TOOLS: for each assessment tool, links to the course outcomes are identified 1. Regular homework assignments [15] 2. Two exams [15] 3. Final written project report [15] 4. Video/oral presentation [1-5]

Reading Assignments There is no required text for the course. Sustainable Energy , by Richard A. Dunlap, Cengage Learning 2015, ISBN# 1133108687 is a recommended text for content that supplements the lecture notes and handouts. A thermodynamics textbook is not required, but it is a good idea to have a basic undergraduate level thermodynamics book available for reference. Homework and exam questions are based on the handouts and lecture materials.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
