Energy resources: Hydropower Energy resources: Hydropower

Description

Hydroelectric energy is ultimately solar energy converted through evaporation of water, movement of air masses and precipitation to gravitational potential energy and then to the kinetic energy of water flowing down a slope. That energy was harnessed for centuries through the use of water wheels to drive mills, forges and textile works, before being supplanted by coal-fired steam energy. The free course, Energy resources: Hydropower, considers hydropower as a potential source of useable energy. First published on Tue, 22 Mar 2016 as Energy resources: Hydropower.

21H.207 The Energy Crisis: Past and Present (MIT) 21H.207 The Energy Crisis: Past and Present (MIT)

Description

This course will explore how Americans have confronted energy challenges since the end of World War II. Beginning in the 1970s, Americans worried about the supply of energy. As American production of oil declined, would the US be able to secure enough fuel to sustain their high consumption lifestyles? At the same time, Americans also began to fear the environmental side affects of energy use. Even if the US had enough fossil fuel, would its consumption be detrimental to health and safety? This class examines how Americans thought about these questions in the last half-century. We will consider the political, diplomatic, economic, cultural, and technological aspects of the energy crisis.

DG5035 Power Supply Circuits

Description

This unit has been designed to provide an introduction to power supply circuits. It will enable you to know and understand the basic concepts of power supplies and to apply and develop this knowledge by constructing and testing a three-terminal power supply and a switched mode power supply. On completion of the unit you should be able to: • analyse the operation of unregulated power supplies; • analyse linear regulated power supplies; • analyse the operation of switched mode power supplies; • design, build and test regulated power supplies.

16.050 Thermal Energy (MIT) 16.050 Thermal Energy (MIT)

Description

This course is taught in four main parts. The first is a review of fundamental thermodynamic concepts (e.g. energy exchange in propulsion and power processes), and is followed by the second law (e.g. reversibility and irreversibility, lost work). Next are applications of thermodynamics to engineering systems (e.g. propulsion and power cycles, thermo chemistry), and the course concludes with fundamentals of heat transfer (e.g. heat exchange in aerospace devices).
