ME4901 - Special Topics in Energy Conversion & Storage
MetadataShow full item record
This course will provide the student with a solid background on energy conversion and storage technologies, including materials, devices and systems. This course will be particularly valuable for those students who may find themselves in situations involving the use of large battery systems or managing programs where such systems are designed, developed or procured. In addition to class lectures, laboratory demonstrations will be included, along with special seminars with distinguished lecturers from other institutions and industry. Given the Navy's historic use of battery technology in submarines and aboard other platforms, the course will begin with electrochemical energy storage technology, and will move into physics-based energy conversion devices. The course will end with a discussion on nuclear energy, as an ultimate benchmark for the specific energy of fuels and storage devices, and with a discussion of the world wide energy supply and demand, so that the opportunities for each technology taught in the course can be seen in the light of future opportunity.
