Course description and aims

Electrostatic presipitator and advanced water treatment technology which can purify air and water, respectively, are representative applications of high voltage engineering. Since these applications are based on high voltage and discharge engineerings, students will study the basic knowledge through lectures and deepen the practical understanding through experimental works.
In each topic, students will understand the operation principle and deepen their understanding of environmental remediation technology through group works, such as building prototypes in teams, which improve their abilities to set up themes and solve issues. Through the group works, students also improve their teamwork, leadership, and communication skills, as well as the important knowledge and skills for engineers such as how to prepare and ensure safety of equipment, how to collect and summarize data, how to consider data, and how to write a report.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to do the following.
1) Understand the basic theory of high voltage technology and discharge phenomenon, and explain application examples to environmental purification technology.
2) Understand the principle and technical problems of electrostatic precipitator technology, acquire the measurement method of dust collection efficiency, and propose suitable electrostatic precipitator technology .
3) Understand the water treatment principles and technical issues of advanced water treatment technology, acquire measuring methods such as ozone generation efficiency, and can propose suitable water treatment technology technology for waste water.
