smile Renewable Energy Systems:

The objective of the course is to present the essential characteristics of the main renewable energy systems – thermal and photovoltaic solar energy, hydropower, wind power – from a resource and production technology viewpoint. The students will learn to assess the globally and locally available resources of such renewable energies and be able to make a rough dimensioning of the installations that will use them.

The topics that will be presented are:

- Solar energy resources

- Solar-thermal and photovoltaic systems

- Hydraulic resources

- Hydraulic turbines and schemes

- Wind energy resources

- Wind turbines

- Other renewable technologies

smileIntroduction to neutronics:
