Solar energy is used worldwide as energy can be harnessed directly from sunlight. Currently, the photovoltaic panel is considered as one of the fastest-growing renewable energy technologies that plays a major role in generating electricity. Sri Lanka receives a significant amount of solar radiation where Global Horizontal Irradiance fluctuates betw...

Gasification is a thermal conversion process in which both heat and a combustible gas will be produced. One method of gasification which is referred to as partial oxidation is a process that is similar to combustion, except that it occurs with insufficient or limited oxygen supply. Objective of this research is to assess the performance of a potent...

Conventional PV cells have a low efficiency which varies between15% to 22%. To overcome this drawback, concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) technology is introduced. This method uses mirrors, lens to focus more sunlight on solar cells to generate electricity. Concentrated PV technology has an advantage over non-concentrated PV system as less number of c...

The Commission on Illumination (CIE) adopted standard sets of 15 skies in 2003 which includes the whole probable spectrum of normal skies found in the world. Each individual type represents a unique distribution. In an analysis, the particular sky type needs to be identified first and then the outdoor illuminance and sky irradiance distribution can...

This research provides economic means of cooling through the effective use of both direct and indirect evaporative cooling mechanisms. Terra cotta has been utilized as the aiding medium for evaporation due to its microstructural heat transfer properties, low cost and easy manufacturability to build a heat capacitor, which retains the coolant which...
