Course by Institution
This course will enable the student to gain knowledge with battery-based systems. Students will install, test, and commission a battery-based PV and/or wind system in the one day boot camp in this course. The student will explore both stand-alone and grid-tied with battery back-up systems, and include both AC and DC coupled systems.
This course will enable the student to explore Alternative Energy, Biomass and Biofuels, Nuclear Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. The student will practice working on both stand-alone and grid-tied photovoltaic and wind turbine systems at the one-day boot camp. (Offered spring semester)
This course will enable the student to perform a site survey for a photovoltaic system. The student will explore photovoltaic applications, installation planning, system components, and preparing proposals. The student will explore how to effectively incorporate photovoltaic systems into stand-alone or interconnected electrical systems.
This course will enable the student to explore cells, modules, arrays, batteries, charge controllers, inverters, system sizing, and mechanical integration. The student will practice using irradiance meter, multi-meter, and temperature gun. The student will practice installing and testing system components
This course will enable the student to understand practical field applications regarding the use of small wind turbines supplying electrical needs on farms and other rural environments. The student will explore global applicants in developing countries and the use of small wind turbines in remote areas of the world.
This course will enable the student to explore small wind construction from site analysis to the safety and maintenance of an installed system.
This course will enable the student to understand basic electrical principles and laws associated with resistance, power, voltage, and current. The student will apply electric fundamentals that are pertinent to both wind and solar PV systems.
This course will enable the student to understand basic principles which apply to the broad field of animal agriculture; a survey of the industry; types, purposes and products of livestock; and principles of selection, nutrition, genetics, reproduction, management and marketing.
