Course description

Importance of energy. Forms, sources and classification of energy. Non-renewable energy sources (coal, oil, nuclear and geothermal energy). Renewable energy sources (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, and 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.

Knowledge and skills acquired

Getting acquainted with the basic knowledge of power engineering and ecology.

Teaching methods

Lectures, auditory and laboratory exercises.

Student requirements

Defined by the Student evaluation criteria of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology Osijek and paragraph 1.9

Monitoring of students

Examination methods

Revision exam in lectures and exercises or written and oral exam.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. estimate basic physical and social-political terms regarding energy, basic energy sources and shapes

2. evaluate basic energy and ecological characteristics of renewable and non-renewable energy sources

3. expand knowledge and adopt attitudes about the influence of power conversions to the environment

4. identify and interpret basic properties of electrical energy and the power system

5. apply the theoretical knowledge in non-renewable and renewable energy sources to analytical problems

6. demonstrate knowledge acquired during lectures and auditory exercises based on the chosen models (models of laboratory exercises present the Seebeck and Peltier effect, wind and solar energy conversion as well as familiarising with the basics of the power
