MECHG020 New & Renewable Engineering Systems
|Title||New and Renewable Engineering Systems|
|Level||MSc / MEng|
||Prof Richard Bucknall (Module Coordinator)|
|Dr Chris Nightingale|
Mathematics to second year undergraduate level to include complex number
theory, ordinary differential equations linear, non-linear 1st order
and linear 2nd order homogenous with constant coefficients. Applied
scientific or engineering undergraduate academic background.
To achieve competency in using analytical methods for understanding the design and behaviour of new and renewable energy systems – design, operational and integration issues. To provide technical knowledge in renewable technologies so as to appreciate the design features for different systems on land and at sea.
Students having successfully completed the course will have the ability to:
- Appreciate the range of renewable and alternative power systems and understand why different designs are used in different power applications and appreciate their technical limits.
- Analyse renewable power systems so as to calculate and relate key parameters such as fluid flow, torque, speed, efficiency, and power under steady-state conditions, etc.
- Understand the ‘state of the art’ in renewable power systems and appreciate advances in new technologies that will influence future designs.
Levelling (2 hrs); Classroom lectures (24 hrs); Classroom tutorials (6 hrs); Revision (2 hrs).
The course has the following assessment components:
- Written Examination (2 hours, 65%) to be sat in March.
- 2 piece of coursework (10 hours 35%) TBA
