Course description

The importance of energy. Forms, sources and classification of energy. Non-renewable sources of energy (coal, oil, nuclear and geothermal energy). Renewable sources of energy (hydropower, biomass, wind power, solar energy etc.). Fundamental energy conversion. Conversion of primary energy forms into the final desired forms (conversion of chemical and nuclear energy into internal energy, internal energy into mechanical energy, potential water energy into mechanical energy, mechanical energy into electrical energy, direct conversions into electrical energy, conversion of electrical energy into other forms). Transmission energy. Transmission and distribution of energy forms. Storage of energy. Environmental impact of engineering products and processes. Industrial ecology. Life cycle assessment. Material flow analysis. Sustainable production and consumption systems.
