Waste and Biomass Energy Conversion
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Prerequisite: Must have completed undergraduate courses in thermodynamics and heat transfer.
Restriction: Permission of Maryland Applied Graduate Engineering.
The overall objective of this course is to develop a toolkit to evaluate the energy security - and in particular, the environmental energy security - of available energy resources and conversion technologies, including those in current use, and those that might be used in the foreseeable future. Energy security is evaluated using a simple three-dimensional model based in the academic literature. This is an engineering class, and while we must occasionally delve into related economics and policy issues, we will focus on the core technical competencies in energy conversion needed to navigate the current world of energy.
