Light management strategies using photonic crystals have been proven to efficiently improve light harvesting and subsequently conversion efficiency of various optoelectronic devices. This study focuses on 3D inverse opal CH3NH3PbI3 photoanodes in perovskite solar cells from a combined numerical and experimental approach. Varying the pore size...

Solar array fed water pumping system is a good approach for water management and agriculture purpose. PV panels highly depend on unpredictable environmental conditions, as a result, the development of a PV system is with more technical challenges. System-level simulation on a desktop computer has limitations, such as uncertain accuracy of the...

The Lunar Zebro is a small six-legged robot. It has the potential to be used in a swarm carrying out objectives like exploring planetary surfaces. A new step towards autonomous navigation is made with the newly developed Obstacle Processing ALgorithm (OPAL) using primarily open-source libraries. This study showed that the initial iteration of...

The charging of a rapidly increasing number of EVs places significant strain on electrical distribution grids. Controlled (’smart’) charging of EVs offers a solution to this problem by shifting the charging of vehicles to the most optimal moments in time. Smart charging is not a completely new research topic; it has a high Technology Readiness...

A hardware in the loop (HIL) simulation is a cost and time effective method to develop a simulation environment of an electric vehicle's powertrain. Control algorithms can be programmed into a digital signal processor and tested with real-time simulations of electrical machines and power electronic converters, eliminating the need for developing...

Diatomite, a rock formed by the accumulation of opaline diatom frustules, is a preferred raw material for the manufacturing of filters. Its uniqueness relies on the high porosity and inertness of the frustules. The presence of carbonates in some diatomite ores hinders these properties. The~purpose of this study was to identify the type of...
