The course(s) will be taught fully online beginning in January 2020. Of particular interest are candidates who have experience teaching and engaging students from diverse backgrounds.
Wind Energy, Technology, and Policy This course provides an overview of wind turbine technology and energy concepts. It is designed for non-engineering majors. Modern wind turbines play an important role in the production of electricity. A brief history of windmills and their design will be given. The question of whether wind technology (or any other renewable source) can impact the energy crisis will be debated. The course gives an overview of fluid dynamic, thermodynamic, and rotor dynamic concepts as they apply to wind technologies. The fundamentals of energy measurement, energy availability, energy transmission, and energy consumption will be covered and used to strengthen the debate. Course topics include the assessment of wind resources, basic principles of wind turbines and power transmission, electric markets and wind power, technological and economic aspect of storage of intermittent wind power, legal issues at state and federal levels, international water issues, and environmental impact assessment processes for wind developments. The importance of function and form and the intersection of politics, human nature, and technology will be explored.
