Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Solar-powered Refrigeration System for Ice Production

The project aims to analyze and design a solar-powered refrigeration system where ice production is used as a case study. The methodology includes studying two parts: refrigeration and solar systems. The refrigeration part is the vapor compression refrigeration system (VCRS) while the solar part is a Photo-voltaic (PV) system. Initially, the refrigeration system is static where no fan is needed, therefore a power input is required to only operate the compressor in the VCRS in order to withstand the refrigeration load to produce 35 kg of ice per day assuming 7 hours of sunshine. For the VCRS, refrigerant R-134a is opted for its availability, low cost, and no-depleting ozone gas.

Modeling and Analysis of Li-ion Cell Venting in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles

Using CFD software, the Li-ion cell thermal runaway can be modeled and cell venting is targeted in order to prevent cell pack failures.

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) System Design

This is a basic project to understand the main Solar PV concepts, components, and operations.

Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) for Energy Supply

This is a basic project to understand the main Solar CSP concepts, components, and operations.
