COURSE: 47-358-1 Topics in Transportation: Energy Distribution  (3)
This course will examine how, given the urgent need for alternate sources of energy, particularly renewable sources, the field of energy distribution will take on greater importance.  Students will explore the problems of conventional means of power (coal- and natural gas-fired plants),  nuclear power, and developing wind, solar, and geothermal technologies as well as the methods that will be used to introduce these power sources into the nationís distribution network, so that power can be generated where it is most expedient and delivered to those regions where it is most needed.   Prerequisite: 47-201, 47-250, 13-120, 46-201.
