Solar Water Pumping for Irrigation: Case Study of the Kilimanjaro Region (Mechanical/Electrical Project)

This study has been conducted as a Minor Field Study (MFS). It focuses on solar water pumping for small-scale farmers in the Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania. The purpose is to investigate the possibilities for Continue reading

Design of Renewable Energy Powered Solar Cool Research Centre (Mechanical Project)

Solar cooling research center is being developed on CSEM-UAE outdoor research facility in RAK/UAE.  The research center is capable to test system from 1 TR cooling capacity to 10 TR cooling capacity. The source of heat is solar radiation and heat pipe type evacuated Continue reading

Cavitation Assessment of the Baihetan Discharge Tunnel – Using Computational Fluid Dynamics (Civil Project)

Recently it has become more common in the construction of large dams to reuse diversion tunnels as flood discharge tunnels in the final structure. These tunnels handle large flows with the characteristics of open channel flow. When such Continue reading

Large Scale Monolithic Solar Panel Simulation – A Study on Partial Shading Degradation (Electrical Project)

Shadow-induced degradation is a major concern for both power output and long-term reliability in solar cells. Apart from the obvious fact that shading reduces the amount of solar irradiance available to solar panels, it may lead to formation of Continue reading

Wireless Power Transmission via Solar Power Satellite (EEE/ECE Project)

A major problem facing Planet Earth is provision of an adequate supply of clean energy. It has been that we face “…three simultaneous challenges — population growth, resource consumption, and environmental degradation — all converging particularly in Continue reading

Identification of Critical Locations and Reduced Model State Estimation for Power System Analysis (Electrical Project)

In order to reduce the carbon footprint and the cost of electric energy, the owners of electric power utilities today are faced with the task of reducing the use of expensive and carbon intensive fossil fuels and significantly increasing the Continue reading
