Abstract

An interdisciplinary undergraduate design team redesigns and builds a hybrid windpower- fossil fuel generation facility that provides electricity and water for an environmentally sensitive wilderness location. Students first develop objectives for quantity of power, quality of power, and practical maintenance. In addressing a host of cutting-edge technical issues, environmental constraints, and human factors, they find a way to meet their objectives. They propose a uniquely insightful design in such a way that the customer can tailor it based on cost, including intangible costs. Upon receiving the customer’s tailored solution, the students build the system. Finally, they propose practical maintenance arrangements. The system successfully provides power and continues to do so.
