Introduction:

This course provides an understanding to the photovoltaic (PV) cells and applications in the general mix energetic context dominated by climate warming mitigation. It provides analysis, system sizing, array configuration, and performance estimation; electrical design characteristics such as wiring, overcurrent protection, and grounding; a detailed look at module and inverter specifications and characteristics.  Also, this course provides a technical sales job task analysis, and focuses on important technical considerations for PV sales professionals, including financial analysis and system financing.

Introduction:

KNX is an open standard for commercial and domestic building automation. KNX is the worldwide standard for all applications in home and building control, ranging from lighting and shutter control to various security systems, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, monitoring, alarming, water control, energy management, smart metering as well as household appliances, audio/video and lots more. This course is concerned with the following topics: The basic approach to the building automation- components and automation equipment for building automation- The different areas of building automation such as: - control of energy in buildings - safety systems - automotive automation - public information systems - domotic systems - communication bus interfaces - etc- Benefits of building automation. Also, this course will cover how to design the KNX topology, how to use ETS to program KNX using lighting and shading examples and how to run diagnostics with ETS.

Introduction:

The term computer network is beginning to sound a bit dated, given the many nontraditional devices that are being hooked up to the Internet. The Internet is a computer network that interconnects billions of computing devices throughout the world. Not too long ago, these computing devices were primarily traditional desktop PCs, Linux workstations, and so-called servers. Increasingly, however, nontraditional Internet “things” such as laptops, smartphones, tablets, TVs, gaming consoles, thermostats, home security systems, home appliances and more are being connected to the Internet. In Internet jargon, all of these devices are called hosts or end systems.

This course will cover the theory, design, engineering, and installation of computer networks to connect digital computers. The course will prepare students to plan, design and implement a computer network. The course starts with an overview of how the internet works and the service models used. Then we introduce the main aspects of network applications and protocols employed to provide these applications.
