Plants convert sunlight energy into chemical energy and store it in their body parts (i.e., grains); plants are systems of energy transformation. This chapter discusses five major technological energy forms: mechanical (including kinematic), electric, chemical, thermal, and electromagnetic (including electromagnetic wave and light) energy. The transformation and transferring mechanisms of these energies are explained. An energy transformation system is defined as a mechanism that transforms one form of input energy into another form of output energy. Downstream problems can be prevented at the system design stage by designing the system to efficiently transform energy. Downstream quality problems are often due to inefficient input-to-output energy transformation.
