Prerequisite
Basic knowledge of Non-conventional energy sources such as geothermal, wind, solar, hydroelectric and bio-power.
Rationale
The Student will learn the concepts about energy sources like solar energy, wind energy, energy from biomass, geothermal energy, energy from the ocean. Recent advancements in energy generations like magneto hydrodynamic power generation, fuel cell technology, hydrogen energy and management of energy in the industries.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Understand difference way to produce energy by unconventional energy sources: solar energy, wind energy, tidal energy, geothermal energy, nuclear fusion,
2. Understand Special methods of energy production: fuel cells, MHD power plants
3. Understand Unconventional energy, transport ,accumulation and application:

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
