More > business school "MBA" knowledge and its application in project management responsibilities. It is written to serve as a self study guide for energy engineers, technicians and technical managers who either lack formal training the finance, account and engineering economics or simply need a means to refresh their knowledge in these subjects. Many technical managers feel inadequately equipped to understand certain important finance and accounting principles, yet these principles are important in interfacing and conducting business with accountants, financial analysts and upper management. This book provides a resource to fill this gap, and to equip energy engineering professionals with the ability to employ decision making skills founded on financial calculations and quantitative analysis.< Less
Thermodynamics Made Simple for Energy Engineers By S. Bobby Rauf

The purpose of this book is to provide an overview of important principles and concepts in the field of thermodynamics, written in a fashion that makes this abstract and complex subject easy to... More > comprehend. Concepts and principles are presented in a way which also will allow many non-engineering professionals with some math background to follow the material and gain useful knowledge. Thermodynamic topics including enthalpy, entropy, latent and sensible heat, heats of fusion, and heat of sublimation are clearly presented. Also covered are phases of substances, the law of conservation of energy, SFEE, the first and second laws of thermodynamics, ideal gas law, and respective mathematical statements. The author provides an examination of specific thermodynamic processes, as well as heat and power cycles such Rankine, Carnot and the differences between them. Case studies illustrate various thermodynamics principles, and each chapter concludes with a list of questions or problems for self assessment.< Less

This book contains the suite of protocols for the equitable evaluation of marine energy converters (based on either tidal or wave energy) produced by the EquiMar consortium led by the University of... More > Edinburgh. These protocols aim to harmonise testing and evaluation procedures across the wide variety of devices presently available with the aim of accelerating adoption though technology matching and improved understanding of the environmental and economic impacts associated with the deployment of arrays of devices. EquiMar will assess devices through a suite of protocols covering site selection, device engineering design, the scaling up of designs, the deployment of arrays of devices, the environmental impact, in terms of both biological & coastal processes, and economic issues. The series of protocols has been developed through a robust, auditable process and we hope they will provide a firm foundation for project developers, consenting agencies, project funders and technology developers to evaluate concepts.< Less
