COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course objectives

The course will allow students to complete five experimental studies of renewable energy technologies. In addition to the knowledge gained concerning the specific technologies studied, students will develop practical laboratory skills
and key skills of analysis concerning alternative/renewable energy sources and the issues associated with implementing them in existing energy networks.

Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course

Enrolled in or passed the course Renewable Energy Sources

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes)

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
- use theory to understand/predict experimental observations
- describe the underpinning scientific principles of renewable energy technologies
- plan and perform experiments
- identify and demonstrate the safe and correct use of measurement and laboratory equipment
- perform measurements, analysis and testing in the laboratory with the appropriate lab equipments and software
- provide quantitative information concerning the real world performance of each technology
- discuss the fundamental and practical factors that limit performance and be aware of the research efforts underway to make improvements
- identify of the issues associated with implementing each technology in existing energy networks
- document scientific information and experimental data and write scientific reports, with graphical presentation of data
- demonstrate teamwork skills.

Course content broken down in detail by weekly class schedule (syllabus)

Five laboratory exercises to accompany the course of lectures on Electrochemistry.
Ex. 1 Determining the characteristic curve of a wind generator
Ex. 2 The effectiveness of an anode material for Al/air sources of energy
Ex. 3 Quantitative analysis of the hydrogen and oxygen evolution rate using the photovoltaic converter
Ex. 4 Determination of efficiency of water electrolysis using the photovoltaic converter
Ex. 5 Efficiency of proton exchange membrane fuel cell

Quality assurance methods that ensure the acquisition of exit competences

Quality assurance will be performed at three levels:
(1)University Level;
(2) Faculty Level by Quality Control Committee;
(3) Lecturer’s Level.
