EE 1703: Laboratory for Climate Crisis: Implementing Solutions

1 CreditOnline AvailablePhysical Sciences

Laboratory to complement and accompany EE 1701. Experiments to include among: 1) Demonstration of Global Warming by CO2, 2) characteristics of Light for Power Generation through PVs, Lighting through LEDs, and Growing Plants in Greenhouses, 3) Energy Generation Using PV Panels and the Maximum Power Point, 4) PV Panels in Series and Parallel combinations, 5) Wind Turbine Characteristics and the Maximum Coefficient of Performance, 6) Wind Turbine Characteristics for varying wind speeds and Pitch Control of Blades, 7) Battery Characteristics, 8) AC Electric Systems: Real and Reactive Power, 1-Phase, 9) Three-Phase Systems, Motors and Generators, 10) LEDs compared to Incandescent Lamps and CFLs, 11) Growing Plants using LEDs and batteries in Greenhouses, 12) Air Conditioning and Heat Pumps, 13) Simulation of various energy resources to meet the load demand on the electric grid, 14) Economic Calculations of using an Electric Vehicle and Participating in Community SolarGardens. EE 1701 and EE 1703 (the lab) need to both be taken to fulfill the Physical Science Core requirement. EE 1701 alone fulfills the Technology and Society theme requirement. prereq: EE 1701 or concurrent registration is required (or allowed) in EE 1701
