Solar Energy Research, Inspection and Training (SolERIT)



An extension building is built just outside the heat transfer laboratory of the Department of Mechanical Engineering for the purpose of conducting experiments in solar energy and training professionals. There is opportunity to perform tests for solar collectors for certification purposes. The building also has a thermal storage wall, on which experiments can be conducted for research purposes. The roof of the building is inclined at two different angles to allow maximum performance for PV and solar thermal panels.


Objectives of the SolERIT laboratory can be listed as follows:
