Appropriate for all students and professionals studying the basic mechanisms of renewable energies. Clear theory and physical examples of all principles relevant to the study of renewable energy. Written by an internationally recognized pioneer researcherDescription Fundamentals of Renewable Energy Processes contains the technical detail necessary to understand the engineering principles that govern renewable energy application at many different levels. Focused on the fundamental mechanisms and processes that underpin energy management, it provides students with the foundation for all energy process courses. This text is 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. From fuel cells, electrolyzers and processes for hydrogen production to biomass and windmills the author provides the most thorough examination of all aspects of renewable energy processes.Readership Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering Students; Renewable Energy Engineers and ManagersTable of Contents Foreward Acknowledgments Generalities Heat Engines A Minimum of Thermodynamics and of Kinetic Theory of Gases Mechanical Heat Engines Ocean Thermal Energy Converters Thermoelectricity Thermionics AMTEC Radio-Noise Generators The World of Hydrogen Fuel Cells Hydrogen Production Hydrogen Storage Energy from the Sun Solar Radiation Biomass Photovoltaic Converters Wind and Water Wind Energy Ocean Engines Subject Index
