These courses introduce students to the fundamentals of dc power circuits, to the storage of electrical energy in lead-acid batteries, and to the generation of electrical energy from wind and sunlight, the two renewable resources most commonly used for home energy production. Training continues with the following two courses dealing with ac power:
These courses teach students the fundamentals of ac power circuits and power transformers, and are necessary to understand the principles of grid-tied home energy production. Students then continue with the following three courses:
These courses familiarize students with the different power electronics devices used for home energy production, such as choppers, inverters, dc-to-dc converters, and high-frequency power transformers. After completion of the above courses, students finally possess all knowledge required to proceed with the main course of the Home Energy Production training system.
This course familiarizes students with the fundamentals of home energy production. It integrates all the different notions which students have acquired in the previous courses to cover both stand-alone home energy production and grid-tied home energy production. The course also explains and demonstrates how home energy production is an important contributor to the implementation of a smart grid, a concept of ever growing importance in today’s electric power networks.
