Solar Energy Laboratory

The main objective of the lab is to give the students an overall background on the thermal and electrical applications of solar energy for domestic and industrial uses. That includes determination of the feasibility and efficiency of solar engineering systems, like water and air heating, food and wood drying, water desalination, solar ovens, solar concentrators for industrial processes heat and power generation and solar energy storage systems. Construction and systems evaluation of graduate projects are considered in the lab. The lab contains possibilities of organizing short training courses engineering solar systems design, operation and performance evaluation. Photos of the training facilities used in the Solar Energy lab are shown in Figures.
