Detail předmětu

Alternative energy sources

FEKT-NAZEAk. rok: 2019/2020

The course deals with advanced issues in the field of alternative energy sources, with a focus on technology production and use of photovoltaic and electrochemical power sources. In the field of photovoltaics the course deals with the principle of operation, limits and possibilities of photovoltaic system. Students will receive information about the solar module, construction and production technology, operating conditions and optimization. Students obtain practical information with issues of the batteries, fuel cells, supercapacitors, their principle of operation, construction, technology and parameters. It is also addressed the issue of environmental disposal at the end of life of the plant.
