This course would review the renewable sources and their need in world energy scenario. Energy harvesting through wind and PV would be
focused in this course. This course will encapsulate PV systems in detail from design of a solar cell to standalone and grid tied PV systems.
Costing of renewable and hybrid systems will also be focused in this course. The course also includes a research project in which students
would be required to do a detailed literature survey and/or analysis of a known finding. Profiling of PV cells, modeling of systems and
presentation of a potential PV application or detailed review of some applications in Pakistan scenario is also acceptable. Original research is
encouraged however a simulation based known result would also be acceptable.


• Devices and Electronics (EE-340)


The objectives of this course will be to introduce students to

• Why is there a need of renewables worldwide and in Pakistan scenario

Basic understanding of wind power system

Detailed understanding of PV cells, panels and technologies

In depth analysis on PV systems and applications

Costing of renewable systems
