Environmental Studies 2130      Solar Energy
Credit Weight: 0.5
Description: Electromagnetic energy fundamentals are reviewed and applied to solar and terrestrial sources of radiation. The effects of the earth's atmosphere on both spectra and the role of the visible component are studied. Methods for estimating both seasonal and latitude dependent available solar insolation are presented. The advantages of materials dependent spectral selectivity are introduced and resulting improvements in device efficiencies are discussed. Techniques for harnessing solar energy are then investigated. Subjects studied will include: passive and active solar energy collection; solar cell developments; wind electric power potential and hardware developments; photosynthesis, and biomass production for food and fuel.
