Course Summary:

Renewable Sources of Electricity 32:22 minutes

Survey the three most important sources of renewable energy: hydropower, wind power, and solar power. Look at the inner workings of hydroelectric dams, wind turbines, solar-thermal power stations, and photovoltaic arrays to see how each takes a renewable energy source and converts it into electricity.

Electrical Power Transmission: The Grid 34:20 minutes

Study the technological marvel called the grid—the system that transmits electricity from its point of generation to users. Learn why electrical transmission lines come in threes, why AC power is used instead of DC, and the reason transmission voltages are so high.

Learning Objective:

By the end of this course the student will be able to identify the three most important sources of renewable energy, examine the inner workings of hydroelectric dams, wind turbines, solar-thermal power stations and photovoltaic arrays, describe the grid, and learn why AC power is used instead of DC, and understand the reason transmission voltages are so high.
