Alternative power sources have gotten more and more essential in a world striving for power independence, clear air, and a reprieve from world warming.
Photo voltaic cells, wind energy, and biofuels are a number of the competing various power sources hoping to achieve a foothold in our future power combine, and the financial benefits of those applied sciences are regularly growing as prices are decreased and efficiencies elevated.
This Alternative Energy Technologies guide introduces the fundamental science behind a variety of other power applied sciences, albeit in a singular manner.
Alternative sources of power are launched via some easy pc fashions which can be utilized to seize their conduct.
Computer systems have permeated all through our whole lifestyle, and revolutionized scientific analysis, opening up a complete new manner through which we do science and engineering.
This Alternative Energy Technologies guide not solely introduces the science behind various power sources (in addition to a number of the environmental wants for various power sources), but additionally the function of pc simulations in elucidating the science of those programs.
Particularly, easy fashions applied inside spreadsheet environments are mentioned which makes the simulations simple and accessible to college students with no prior programming expertise.
The pc fashions launched on this Alternative Energy Technologies guide may very well be taught as a part of an everyday class, used as a spring board for pupil analysis, or used by researchers not conversant in pc modeling to discover the facility and flexibility of easy pc simulations.
Alternative energy sources are becoming increasingly important in a world striving for energy independence, clean air, and a reprieve from global warming. Solar cells, wind power, and biofuels are some of the competing alternative energy sources hoping to gain a foothold in our future energy mix, and the economic advantages of these technologies are continually increasing as costs are reduced and efficiencies increased.
Alternative Energy Technologies: An Introduction with Computer Simulations explores the science and engineering behind a number of emerging alternative energy technologies, including polymer solar cells, algae biofuels, and artificial leaves. It also addresses the environmental need for these technologies. However, unlike its predecessors, this book employs simple computer models implemented within spreadsheet environments to simulate different aspects of the alternative energy technologies and therefore teach the subject matter.
This unique approach:
- Provides a dual introduction to alternative energy technologies and computer simulation
- Elucidates the fundamental behaviors and complex interactions within the alternative energy systems
- Makes computer simulation straightforward and accessible to readers with no prior programming experience
Featuring investigative exercises that deepen understanding and inspire further research, Alternative Energy Technologies: An Introduction with Computer Simulations makes an ideal introductory textbook for undergraduate students and a valuable professional reference for experimental researchers.
