Contents Notes
Heat engines. Thermodynamics and kinetic theory -- Heat engines -- Ocean thermal energy conversion -- Thermoelectricity -- Thermionic converters -- AMTECs -- Radio-noise generators -- The World of Hydrogen. Fuel Cells -- Production of Hydrogen -- Hydrogen Storage -- Energy from the Sun. Solar radiation -- Biomass -- Photovoltaic converters -- Wind & Water Energy. Wind energy -- Other ocean engines. "Fundamentals of Renewable Energy Processes deals with the fundamental mechanisms and processes that underpin energy management and form common elements of all energy process courses. This text contains the technical detail necessary to understand the engineering principles that govern renewable energy application at many different levels. Organized according to the main forms of energy - heat engines, hydrogen energy, energy from the sun, and wind and water energy - with an introductory chapter of basic energy terms, this is the most comprehensive text for engineering students. From fuel cells, electrolyzers and processes for hydrogen production to biomass and windmills, the author thoroughly examines all aspects of renewable energy processes."--Jacket.
