Natural Gas and Solar Energy is a free online course that begins by introducing you to the importance of gaseous fuels, their basic properties and the routes for energy production. You will learn about naturally available gaseous fuels and the application of gaseous fuels in combustion for heat and electricity production. You will also be introduced to the production of liquid fuel from syngas as well as some important routes for liquid fuel production from syngas. You will also be familiar with the major features of liquid fuel conversion.
This course then explains the concept of hydrogen as a green fuel, hydrogen production routes along with natural gas as a feedstock for hydrogen. You will learn about the routes for hydrogen production from natural gas. You will gain an understanding of the sun as a source of energy, some facts about solar insolation as well as solar radiation and spectrum. This course will also teach you about techniques for solar energy conversion to a usable form.
Furthermore, you will get familiar with the wind as a source of energy, the wind energy system as well as the types of wind machines. You will learn about the production of energy from wind as well as wind energy computation. This course will introduce you to the role of wind energy in India. This free online course will be of great interest to students, researchers, and anyone with an interest in clean and renewable energy production.
