REES 6010 - Installation of Fluid-driven Renewable Energy Systems

Renewable Energy Electrical Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Construction and the Environment

BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.

Course Details

The motion of wind and water are two of the three main sources of renewable energy. The main goal of this course is to familiarize students with installation and operational requirements for several types of renewable energy systems that are wind and water driven. The specifics of wind vs. water power generation will be covered after common electrical principles have been discussed. A significant part of the course is dedicated to application activities that reinforce the theory. At the end of the course a student will be comfortable doing installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of wind and micro-hydro power systems.
