Synopsis:

The course deals with renewable energy sources and building energy systems. The different types of energy-solar, wind, biomass, geothermal and hydro-are discussed in detail. The characteristics of the energies and the most appropriate methods of use are described. Attention is paid to understanding the correct way to design facilities and systems that use renewable energy sources.

Requirements:

Completion of the assigned work in the specified scope and within the given deadline.

Syllabus of lectures:

1.Introductory seminar, introduction to the issues and schedule, legislation, regulations, situation, renewable resources, applicability and availability of resources

2.Solar energy - principle of use, passive systems

3.Solar energy - active systems, photothermal systems, design of solar thermal systems

4.Solar energy - active systems, photovoltaic systems, design of solar photovoltaic systems

5.Environmental energy and geothermal energy - uses, heat pumps, types, design method, balancing

6.Geothermal energy - characteristics, methods of use, cogeneration - characteristics of technology, benefits.

7.Biomass - sources, methods of obtaining biomass, biomass processing.

8.Biomass - methods of energy extraction from biomass, biomass combustion.

9.Wind energy- wind turbines, equipment design, characteristics, energy benefits.

10.Water energy- water turbines, wave energy, equipment design, characteristics, energy contribution.

11. Non-traditional energy sources - fuel cells, solar, wind and hydro, supplementary energy sources.

12. Energy efficient buildings - examples, building characteristics, design concepts, coordination of systems, smart buildings.

13. Renewable energy sources - evaluation and further development
