Students in this program will learn the various means of power generation and distribution with topics that include turbines and the means to drive them, motor/generator sets, renewable and non-renewable energy generation and electrochemical systems (such as batteries). Students will learn about single and multiple phase generation and distribution systems, transformers, and high voltage AC and DC systems. The cost of power generation and environmental issues will also be examined. Students will work with mechanical, fluid, and electrical systems. Attention will be placed on the integration of engineered systems and the control systems needed to meet designed results.
