    Efficiency Enhancement of Solar Cells & Panels using Thermal Cooling Layer(No)
    The objective of the proposed research work is: To enhance the reduced efficiency of Silicon solar cell panels caused due to increase in temperature of cells. The following approaches will be considered for the same: (1) To develop the cooling layer using nanomaterials or composites with high emissivity to cool the solar cells. (2) Integration of thermal cooling layer with solar cells and panels. (3) Characterization of the layers under different environmental conditions by (DST)

    Portable Room Temperature Battery Operated LPG Leakage Sensor with Wireless Alarm and SMS Facility(Realty Automation & Security Systems Pvt. Ltd., Pune)
    Gas sensing equipments are very critical devices at home as well as at industries to avoid very serious accidents. Specially accidents caused by LPG leakage are severe and can cause a big loss of life and property. Therefore, there has been an all time interest in the development of portable, highly sensitive, reliable detector which can work in ambient conditions and should also be capable of detection at few ppm levels. There is no readily available device, which can easily measure the leakagby (DST)

    Dual use of land for farmers using a combination of Solar Photovoltaic Panels and Agriculture: Agriv(No)
    Agrivoltaic systems can provide a good support to the farmers during the extreme conditions (natural or economical) as well as can produce electricity provide an additional source of income to farmers. It can provide the solution of loss in efficiency due to increase of temperature and deposition of dust on these panels. 1. Our main objective is to increase the income of the farmer by having the combination of solar Panel and agricultural land. 2. Secondly, to prevent the decrease in the efby (DST)
