Subject: Clean Electrical Energy Sources (12 - EZ300)

Basic Information

Scientific or art field:Electroenergetic Systems
Course specification

Course is active from 08.10.2012..

The goal of this course is to provide students with basic knowledge of existing potentials for exploitation of clean energy sources, as well as the principles of operation of power plants which use clean energy, especially wind energy, solar, hydropower (small hydro), biomass, geothermal and others. Students will be introduced more thoroughly in the methods of operation, designing, constructing and techno-economic aspects of their use, especially in light of the available capacity in Vojvodina and Serbia. In addition, the present and the ways of incorporating these sources into the existing electrical distribution system, as well as all the problems and advantages of this approach.
The course is designed so that, thanks to a combination of theoretical and practical approaches, students will aquire knowledge of general principles of use of clean energy technologies for power generation. Students will be able to calculate, design and use of plants for the conversion of renewable resources into electricity, and to improve their applicability. They will gain practical experience in working with wind and solar power, as well as know-how of their operation and connection to the existing power system.
Introduction - concept and types of clean energy sources and conversion capabilities into electricity. Methods for estimating the energy potential of the country, region or specific locations. Review of available software tools. Conditions in the global economy and typical trends. View realized capacity in Europe, Serbia and Vojvodina. Converters of solar energy, wind and water energy: theories, models and practices. Characteristics and selection of electric generators in wind power plants. Complex power plants (wind farms, solar power stations) - mode, surveyor regimes, management, interconection to the grid. Small hydro power plant - construction, operation and connection. Use of other renewables - operating principles and their application. Techno-economic analysis of renewable sources application: methods and analysis. The market situation and examples of implemented plants in Serbia and Europe.
Teaching methods include lectures and active student participation through discussion on a given topic, group and individual scientific research, processing, case studies, etc.. Theoretical aspects and mathematical models will be presented at the lectures, while the practical work and simulation work to be done in the exercise. Independent student work will be reported in the preparation of project / case studies.
