Renewable Energy Laboratory

The Renewable Energy Laboratory provides an opportunity for undergraduate/graduate students and researchers to work with renewable energy sources. A total of 29 experiments can be conducted with 2 renewable energy sources in the Renewable Energy Laboratory and analytical studies can be supported with experimental studies. There are two clean and sustainable renewable energy sources as solar and wind energy used in the laboratory. Working principles are observed by operating the wind turbines and solar panels with different load values and parameters. Experiments conducted in the Renewable Energy Laboratory are listed below.
