This unit focuses on the design of renewable energy systems and in particular, on estimating the performance and economics of such systems. It will focus heavily on the use of computer-based design and simulation programs to estimate these parameters. The input data requirements, method of operation, and strengths and weaknesses of these computer-based tools will be presented. Students will use many of these computer-based tools to solve component sizing and design problems.
Note(s): This course is web-based with online content only. Reliable broadband internet connection required. This course is taught under a joint teaching arrangement by staff at the Research Institute of Sustainable Energy at Murdoch University via their distance learning system to Massey University students. The dates of delivery will differ. Contact the course coordinator below if further information is required.
Note: You may enrol in a postgraduate course (that is a 700-, 800- or 900-level course) if you meet the prerequisites for that course and have been admitted to a qualification which lists the course in its schedule.
