    Exposing students at an early age to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activities has been considered an important factor in influencing them to select a technical career path. The Center for Ultrawide-Area Resilient Electric Energy Transmission Networks (CURENT) is an engineering research center jointly supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and led by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. At CURENT, we plan to develop innovative power grid and electronics activities to engage K-12 students as a way to introduce them to science and technology. For most university educators, such outreach programs are a new experience and could be time-consuming to establish. As a result, our group has assembled a few principles to guide us in devising our wind farm design activities, whose attributes are listed below. Later in this article, we provide information about obtaining activity design materials and a spreadsheet. View full abstract»

  • Teaching Old Dogs New Tricks: The Effectiveness of Community-Based Social Marketing on Energy Conservation for Sustainable University Campuses

    Publication Year: 2013 , Page(s): 30 - 38

    The paper presents a community-based social marketing (CBSM) study that was conducted at Kansas State University (KSU) to determine potential strategies to decrease energy consumption on college campuses. The study was supported by a National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) project, “Earth, Wind, and Fire: Sustainable Energy for the 21st Century.” The ultimate goal of this research is to establish an effective campaign to make KSU a more sustainable community while ensuring that the needs and concerns of individuals-specifically, laboratory scientists-on campus are addressed as well. This approach to sustainability has the capability of motivating and empowering building users and managers to not only make KSU's campus more sustainable but also to stretch beyond the boundaries of the university in the future.

    The electric power delivery system was designated by the U.S. National Academy of Engineering as the leading engineering development of the 20th century. This engineering marvel is being further updated with new technologies to realize a smarter electric grid. The smart electric grid will be more controllable and interactive compared with the existing electric grid. With growing complexity, there is a crucial need for training and workforce development.

    According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE ), “Smart grid generally refers to a class of technology people are using to bring utility electricity delivery into the 21st century, using computer-based remote control and automation.” This initiative not only requires power engineers to have a better understanding of auxiliary fields like signal processing, controls, information technology, and communication networks but also needs experts in the auxiliary fields to understand the basic operations of power systems. There is great need in industry for such cross-trained professionals to meet the many challenges of modernizing the power grid. View full abstract»

    Wind energy, like many modern engineering fields, is a collaboration of disciplines. If one were asked which areas of expertise are needed to design a wind turbine, it would be difficult to come up with a definitive list. The team would definitely include electrical, mechanical, and control engineers, and it would likely combine these skills with those of physicists, meteorologists, and materials scientists, to name but a few. In academia, important research in wind energy is undertaken in all these areas and more, and much of the ground breaking research is conducted at the boundaries between disciplines.

    William Wilgus, Chairman of the Electric Traction Commission (ETC), which planned and supervised the early 1900s electrification of Grand Central Terminal in New York City, sent this warm, handwritten note to the widow of one of its most influential members, electrical inventor Frank J. Sprague, who had died seven years earlier. It accompanied a copy of Wilgus's record of the project, “The Grand Central Terminal in Perspective,” which had been published in the Transactions of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) in 1941.
