The Cycle of Knowledge: Energy
Step 1: Read 1000 background research in one year (200 days x 5), Compare 100 similar research, Select 10 related research.
Renewable energy is future, because Fossil fuel depleted. However renewable energy is intermittent, therefore energy storage is important. Energy storage is solution (Hall and Bain 2008).
– Electrochemical Energy (Flow Batteries, Lithium Ion, Supercapacitor)
– Superconducting Magnetic Storage (SMES)
– Kinetic Energy Storage (Flywheels)
Trend in Photovoltaic Technologies (Bagnal and Boreland, 2008)
Step 2: Design 10 method, Compare 10 method, Perform 5 method, Analyze 3 results in one year
Step 3: Repeat step 1 and 2 in one year
Each steps should be performed in sequential. Fair allocation estimated at 40 hours/week
