In the course the students will get acquainted with the multidisciplinary problems of the current energetics in the connection of engineering, electrotechnical, economic, information and environmental fields. The thematic lectures address the issue of the global theme of the low carbon economy in terms of the use of alternative and renewable energy sources together with storage technologies and their measurement and control for the sustainable development of the society. Are mentioned applications for stationary and mobile and transport / transport systems.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Familiarize students with the complexity of solving current energy systems using alternative and renewable energy sources, energy storage technologies and measurement, control and information systems. The student will get a basic overview of alternative and renewable energy sources, storage technologies, measurement and management of these systems. Gets information on the context of their deployment in real-time stationary, mobile, transport / transport applications.
