Modules

An indicative list of topics covered on this course are:

  • Renewable energy technologies 1
    This module provides the necessary knowledge and skills to analyse the technical performance, environmental impact and economic feasibility of a variety of solar and wind powered systems. The module provides a systematic understanding of current knowledge, and a critical awareness of current problems and new insights at the forefront of professional practice; train students to evaluate critically current research and advanced scholarship in the field of solar and wind power; enables students to evaluate solar and wind power technologies, develop critiques of them and, where appropriate, to propose novel solutions.
  • Renewable energy technologies 2
    The module provides the necessary knowledge and skills to analyse the technical performance, environmental impact and economic feasibility of a number renewable energy technologies such as fuel cells, biofuels, geothermal, and micro-hydropower systems.
  • Energy resource and use analysis
    This module is designed to develop strategic and operational management skills in the fields of infrastructure asset management and project appraisal. It covers design life extensions, risk and asset management techniques for infrastructure, and techniques for physical appraisal of infrastructure, and their economic, environmental and social impacts.
  • Electrical power
    The module covers electrical power engineering as applied to the design of systems in buildings. In particular, this includes the connection of, and the effects of, small-scale embedded generation as might be employed to exploit renewable energy sources. The module aims to provide appreciation and understanding of electrical services design in buildings with particular reference to safety requirements and the effects of embedded generation on the supplier and the consumer.
  • Sustainable refrigeration
    The module introduces the principles of thermodynamics, and applies them to the study and design of energy efficient refrigeration systems. Vapour compression, absorption and other novel cycles are analysed and modelled  Practical applications of sustainable refrigeration are investigated through case studies.
  • Environmental management
    The module is designed to develop understanding of the way in which human social and economic activities impact on the environment. The emphasis is on how managers can assess and influence the environmental impact of their particular organisation, with reference to key technologies and the political and legal constraints within which organisations must operate.
