Abstract"Renewable Energy Generations is an essential component of any environmental studies as well as Energy/Renewable- Energy Engineering education. It is not possible to use the real systems in these programs unless the campuses own and operate renewable generations. Even then, it is at best a demonstration project. The Renewable Energy Laboratory (REL) by Lucas-Nuelle proposed for use in this proposal is an excellent, pioneering teaching system for the complex issues of tomorrow’s energy supply .We aim at using REL to improve students' learning experience in the Energy, Sustainability and Environment (ENV101 - which is currently being offered as part of Environmental Studies concentration on campus (http://www.farmingdale.edu/registrar/pdf/fsc-college-catalog-2016-2017.pdf ). Specifically, we have the following objectives: i) to help the students complete the applied learning projects in a manageable way; ii) to design simulation demos that can be used in lectures to help the students understand the course materials; and iii) to reach out to high school students with some of the demonstration projects build using REL in order to promote their interests in studying STEM in college. Various assessment methods will be used to evaluate the project outcomes, based on which we will further improve and sustain the activities proposed in this project."
DescriptionUsing Renewable Energy Laboratory (REL) simulator to design manageable hands-on/Applied Learning components in an introductory energy and environment course, to help deepen student learning of renewable energy generation, both challenges and benefits.

Design of Electromagnetic Shock Absorbers for Energy Harvesting for Energy Harvesting from Vehicle Suspensions Zhang, Pei Sheng (The Graduate School, Stony Brook University: Stony Brook, NY., 1-Dec-11)Transportation accounts for 70% of oil consumption, and yet only 10-20% the fuel energy is used for vehicle mobility. One of the important losses is the energy dissipation in suspension vibration. The objectives of this ...
