Energy Management Thesis No Business Plan
Conventional and alternative energy technologies are described.
Energy supply and utilization options are evaluated from technical, economic, and environmental perspectives.
Classroom Hours - Laboratory and/or Studio Hours – Course Credits: 3-0-3 Advanced concepts of systems engineering are introduced, and applied to the analysis and design of systems.
The operational elements of systems are identified, described, and modeled at each stage of their life cycles.
If the student does not complete ENGY 890 within one calendar year, or if their progress is judged to be unsatisfactory, the student will be required to reregister for ENGY 890 at full tuition.
Many of the applications pertinent to unmanned vehicles, such as environmental research and analysis, communications, and information-surveillance and reconnaissance, benefit from prolonged vehicle operation time.
A comparison between one of the common motion-planning algorithms and experimental results of the prescribed algorithms, made possible by use of a test environment and mobile robot designed and developed specifically for this research, are presented and discussed.
This course will examine a total management system needed for planning and control of energy resources in an organization, setting of objectives, developing policies and procedures, organizing and staffing, reporting and controlling, and dealing with top management.
Classroom Hours - Laboratory and/or Studio Hours – Course Credits: 3-0-3 Mechanical and electrical systems for conventional fuel power plants are analyzed.
Operating strategies are developed for generation and distribution systems; reliability; power pools; reserve capability; generation of steam; generation planning; dispatching algorithms; turbines; and environmental controls.
