RESEARCH, TESTING AND CONSULTATION

The EEE department is now providing research, consultation/advisory and testing services in the area of power, electronics, communication and computer. Some of them are listed below. The inverter converts the produced DC electricty of the solar array into maximum usable AC energy and coordinate the efficient and safe operation of the whole system. There are a numbers of key parameters in both the soalar module and inveter required to test before operation.

RESOURCE PERSON

The EEE department has a vibrant community of recognised researchers and expert person focused on addressing major challenges in power systems, solar and wind energy, energy storage and battery management control systems, computation networks, electronic devices materials, and systems engineering. Please find the profile of the resources person and the their research strength in the following links respectively

I)  Solar Module/Panel and Equipment

Solar modules and inverters are the operational heart of every solar PV system. The solar array consists of connected moules produces DC electricity. The inverter converts the DC electricty of the solar array into maximum usable AC energy and coordinate the efficient and safe operation of the whole system. There are a numbers of key parameters in both the soalar module and inveter required to test before operation. 

Name of the parameters

  • Maximum power determination
  • Insulation test.
  • Temperature coefficients.
  • Measurement of NOCT.
  • Performance at STC and NOCT (Normal operation cell temperature).
  • Outdoor exposure test.
  • Hot spot endurance test.
  • Wet leakage current test.
  • Mechanical load test.
  • By-pass diode thermal test.
  • Robustness of termination test.
  • Inverter: Off-grid and grid-tied

          Fee of Testing Service

           How much you have to pay for any of these tests depends on the sample get tested? Also, depends on the time required to complete the test procedures, routine test, site visits if applicable. In general, prior to sample collection, the responsible team review the appropriate test description, including the specimen type indicated, the volume, the procedure, the collection of materials, storage and handling instructions. During assessment of a sample the relevent standards are strictly followed. Note that, test report for a particular sample may not carry the same results for the rest of the sample in a lot. For fee and quotation to get tested of your sample, please consult our BRTC Secretory or Treasurer.
