Project

California power resource mix with economic outlook

Project (M.S., Electrical and Electronic Engineering)--California State University, Sacramento, 2017.

Electricity is an essential component of a human life. Electricity is generated from various
 sources. In California, natural gas plants, renewables, nuclear plants, and large hydro
 make up the in-state generation. Each resource is unique and has their pros and cons. This project describes different resources' background and history, mechanics of operations,
 and government regulations. The goal of this project is to compare and rank each source
 based on five different criteria: renewability, production cost, government programs,
 availability, and future outlook. Each category has a 1-10 scale, while government
 programs have a 1-5 scale. The totals from each criterion were summed up and the
 sources of energy in California were ranked.
