Requisite(s): 48531 Electromechanical Automation

Fields of practice: Electrical Engineering major



This subject aims to introduce students to contemporary renewable energy technology, including sustainability and environmental issues, energy resources, electric power generation from renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind, geothermal, wave, tide, hydro and fuel cells. Understanding of energy storage and system integration is needed and, as an example, developments in electrical utilisation in electric and hybrid vehicles are also studied. Design techniques for renewable energy systems are discussed in detail. Students are able to practise their design skills of renewable energy systems through a group project specified as system specification, analysis of options and system design and implementation. By studying this subject, students gain knowledge and essential skills to design a renewable energy system.
