In this course the student will understand a variety of different energy storage technologies and explore their advantages and disadvantages with an in-depth cost and performance comparison. This course follows the report: Energy Storage Technology and Cost Characterization Report, published by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
This course provides a thorough overview of current electrical storage technologies including batteries, flywheels, compressed air energy storage (CAES), and pumped storage hydropower (PSH) and is a how-to guide for engineers to aid in the selection, procurement, installation, and/or operation of stationary energy storage systems in today’s electric grid.
In this course the student will understand Electrification, the shift from non-electric to electric sources of energy at the point of final consumption, and an analysis of the potential impacts of widespread electrification on the evolution of the U.S. electricity system. This course follows the guide: Electrification Futures Study: Scenarios of Power System Evolution and Infrastructure Development for the United States, published by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
In this course the student will understand how to reduce the cost and improve the effectiveness of operations and maintenance (O&M) for photovoltaic (PV) systems and combined PV and energy storage systems. The course follows the guide: Best Practices for O&M of Photovoltaic and Energy Storage Systems 3rd edition, published by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
This course will focus on the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines for Buildings and Facilities (the ADA Accessibility Design Guidelines), with which engineers and architects need to comply when working on new constructions or alterations of existing structures.
The publication Life Safety Code, known as NFPA 101, is a consensus standard widely adopted in the United States. It states guidelines for construction, protection, and occupancy features necessary to minimize danger to life from the effects of fire, including smoke, heat, and toxic gases created during a fire.
