About Course

Renewable Energy Engineering: Solar, Wind and Biomass Energy Systems

In this course, an attempt has been made to standardize the course material and to emphasize the fundamental of non-conventional energy sources (solar, wind, and biomass). Harnessing the energy through these sources using efficient technologies is expected to play an important role in serving as a clean energy source for mankind. Thus, processes to harness energy are steadily gaining technical and economic importance worldwide.

Therefore, energy planners/ users must know the facts as well as the limitations of these technologies. This course aims at bringing the technological developments and research trends in the field of non-conventional energy sources with an emphasis on engineering and design aspects. After attending this course students will have an insight into biomass types, classifications, selective utilization of biomass resource for extraction of energy, bio-digester, wind machine, and thermo-digester design.

INTENDED AUDIENCE: The target audience for this course is

(i) BTech/MTech/Ph.D. students or faculties from reputed academic and technical institutions interested in acquiring knowledge of solar, wind, and biomass renewable energy systems(ii) Those who are pursuing a career as a Chemical engineer/Mechanical engineer or Biosciences and Bioengineer designing renewable energy systems such as solar, wind and biomass systems
(iii) Executives, engineers, and researchers from manufacturing, service, and government organizations including R&D laboratories working in the area of energy engineering.
