Solar Energy, physics homework help

Other

This is an extra credit assignment. You could either choose this one or the other one: Alternative Energy- “Wind”    OR Alternative Energy- “Solar” 

Instructions:

Report format- Five pages of text minimum (graphs and data table are additional), single line space, size 12, font times, margin less than 1″ (all round). Graphs, data tables and reference list are on additional page(s). 

Submission format: PDF

Please find a current operational and sizable “Wind Farm” around the world, address the following areas:

  1. the feasibility study guide for choosing a location (for the wind farm) and types of wind mill available (technical aspects, such as efficiency). 
  2. physics principles and parameters involved in harvesting wind power, derive the equation for power yielded.
  3. operational management study of such a wind farm ( how many wind mills to install, project costs,  amount of energy harvests annually, equivalent of CO2 reduction if the same of energy is produced by using traditional fossil fuel, years to “recover’ the initial investment, annual maintenance costs, etc..)
  4. Pros and Coms for harvesting wind power. 
  5. new theory/technology in progress for wind mill.

Please find a current operational and sizable “Solar Energy Farm” around the world, address the following areas:

  1. the feasibility study guide for choosing a location (for the Solar Energy farm) and types of solar cells available (technical aspects, such as efficiency). 
  2. physics principles and parameters involved in harvesting Solar Energy, derive the equation for power yielded. 
  3. operational management study of such a Solar Energy Farm ( total area of solar panels to install, project costs,  amount of energy harvests annually, equivalent of CO2 reduction if the same of energy is produced by using traditional fossil fuel, years to “recover’ the initial investment, annual maintenance costs, etc..)
  4. Pros and Coms for harvesting solar power. 
  5. Types of solar cell (technology, material) installed on satellites/space probes, cost comparison to commercial solar panel.
