13/02/09: **PhD Scholarship Available**

PhD Scholarship Available on 'Design of an Energy-Based Controller for an Active Solar Collector'

The main aim of this project is to develop a prototype microprocessor based control system that improves the energy capture of an active solar collector water heating system operating under Irish meteorological conditions. The microprocessor controller is to be programmed with high-level mathematical algorithms, developed using modelling, simulation and experimental testing of a DIT solar collector system. In developing this control system, the intention is to expose and train a graduate student in research methodologies relating to dynamic systems modelling, simulation, model validation, control algorithm development and implementation.
