Renewable Energy

This research group focuses on aspects of renewable energy resources including modeling and simulation of energy systems. Great emphasis is placed on optimizing existing systems and developing new efficient systems. Research topics may include the following:

  • Design and optimization of wind turbines 
  • Horizontal-axis and vertical axis wind turbines
  • Control of wind turbines
  • Automatic cleaning of solar panels and solar collectors
  • Solar heating applications
  • Refrigeration and air-conditioning systems using solar energy

The objective of the proposed cluster is to cover all engineering aspects of renewable energy to develop new energy resources and enhance the existing resources. Great emphasis will be placed on the wind energy and solar energy because of their potential in providing reliable continuous energy.
