My experience in the Class

2010 May 17.
This is the first day of the course <innovative energy system> for the first year master in Institute of Refrigeration and Cryogenics.  Prof. Reinhard Radermacher from University of Maryland gave lectures in the class. He introduced the background of energy use and existing global challenges related to energy and environment.  To meet these challenges, it is very important to understand how the energy conversion system works, improve the existing system and develop novel high efficient system and make good use of renewable energy.  Prof. Radermacher taught the students use EES to solve questions on energy system.  This is a very good software and very useful as a tool of studying on energy conversion syste..

After class, I talked with Prof. Radermacher.  He is very interested in teaching, especially thermodynamics and renewable energy.  I am also interested in teaching renewable energy.  We talked about selecting textbooks.  He mentioned the book < Sustainable Energy — without the hot air>.  He is now using this book as renewable energy textbook in University of Maryland.  I once read through this book. There are a lot of interesting facts and data in this book. It does not just teach you what and how to do, but also encourage readers to calculate, think, and draw their own conclusions. The good news is that this book is available free in the following website:

I wish our students can download it and enjoy this excellent book.
