The solution to our current energy dilemma will contain features of both alternate energy sources and alternate use of existing energy sources. In order to help engineers find this solution, Alternative Energy Systems covers a wide range of concepts. They will examine areas involving reat turbomachine and solar energy, CHP applications, and additional alternate energy concepts. All chapters focus on first-order engineering calculations. Alternate energy topics are also equated to topics related to renewable energy resources. Engineers will learn how to apply these concepts to find new solutions.
