ECE 5930-005
ADVANCED ELECTRICAL ENERGY ENGINEERING

Syllabus/Schedule

Semester: Spring 2014

Section: 005

CRN: 26264

Credits: 3

Catalog Description:  (abbreviated): Team design, analysis, assembly test and display outputs from renewable electrical energy systems. The system will transform, transmit, monitor, control, store and deliver electrical power appropriate for devices and subsystems.

Prerequisites: Upper Division student in College of Engineering or Instructor approval.

Course Objectives Outcomes):
• As the projects of multidisciplinary teams, engineer hybrid renewable energy harvesting systems to deliver electrical power.
• The systems must accept and route power inputs from appropriate renewable energy sources, including solar and wind.
• The systems should be under smart controlsl using measured diagnostics.
• Based upon formulated systems requirements and specifications, perform top-down engineering design, implementation, test, review, & document operational systems.
Process, display, graph, store, and web broadcast power vs. renewable natural power inputs.
