Fundamentals of Energy Technology. Energy Technology Series.
Center for Occupational Research and Development, Inc., Waco, TX.; Technical Education Research Centre-Southwest, Waco, TX.
This course in fundamentals of energy technology is one of 16 courses in the Energy Technology Series developed for an Energy Conservation-and-Use Technology curriculum. Intended for use in two-year postsecondary technical institutions to prepare technicians for employment, the courses are also useful in industry for updating employees in company-sponsored training programs. Comprised of seven modules, the course is designed as an overview of the entire energy field. It discusses energy fuels, production schemes, area of utilization, environmental considerations, and conservation/audit principles. Geared more to the seminar approach, the course also provides career visibility and rationale for including each course in the curriculum. Written by a technical expert and approved by industry representatives, each module contains the following elements: introduction, prerequisites, objectives, subject matter, exercises, laboratory materials, laboratory procedures (experiment section for hands-on portion), data tables (included in most basic courses to help students learn to collect or organize data), references, and glossary. Module titles are Energy Technology, Sources of Energy: I and II, Uses of Energy, Energy Analysis, and Energy and the Environment. The last module is an Energy Resource Guide that includes an annotated bibliography of print and non-print resources, explanation of the curriculum, examples of projects, and a glossary. (YLB)
