APPLICATION OF TAGUCHI METHOD TO OPTIMIZE THE HYBRID PHOTO- VOLTAIC/THERMAL SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT [pp 01-07]

Apsad Ali, Dr. S.K. Nagpure, Jyoti Mishra
Abstract: In This study, designed and developed a photovoltaic/thermal (PV/T) system, which produce electricity and heat (hot water) simultaneously. All Experiments are conducted inside room to check the influence of the temperature of the PV cell on the PV conversion efficiency. If the open circuit voltage of photovoltaic cell is reduced then conversion efficiency of the cell can be reduced at higher working temperatures. effect of these on the photovoltaic cell as extended payback period of the photovoltaic cell and shorten the life of photovoltaic cell. In order to prevent from these problem we need to dispatched more heat form the photovoltaic cell with the help of effective cooling methods. In this paper we study ……


EXTENDING THE LIFE OF PISTON BY USING CRUST OF HIGH TEMPERATURE BEARING MATERIAL AND ANALYZING BY FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS [pp 08-22]

Surendra Singh, Arun Singh Patel

Abstract: Internal combustion engine is consist of a very important part piston which is made up of Aluminium alloy. In internal combustion engine during combustion very high temperature and pressure is there inside the cylinder which piston has to bear range of temperature is 6000c-20000c and pressure is upto 50 bar .Due to high temperature and pressure high thermal and high structural force per unit area in the piston is produced inside the engine cylinder and if..


COAL GASIFICATION TO GENERATE POWER WITH GREEN HOUSE GAS EMISSIONS [pp 23-26]

Surendra Singh, Arun Singh Patel

Abstract: An integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) is a technology that turns coal into gas synthesis gas (syngas). It then removes impurities from the coal gas before it is combusted and attempts to turn any pollutants into re-usable byproducts. This results in lower emissions of sulfur dioxide, particulates, and mercury. Excess heat from the primary combustion and generation is then passed to a steam cycle, similarly to a combined cycle gas turbine. This then also results in…


Graphene – A New Age of Material :  A Review [pp 27-33]

Kolewar Arun

Abstract: We all be familiar with two well-known forms of Carbon which are diamond and graphite. Diamond is a one of the toughest and hard material in the earth. Graphite is well-known as most brittle material. But one thing had changed forever, when two physicists A.K.Geim….


A REVIEW ON INVESTIGATION OF SEIZURE FAILURE OF HEAVY DUTY ENGINE PISTON [34-45]

Jain Avi, Saxena Samarth

Abstract: In IC engine piston failure is a common phenomenon, but it is very serious problems which still exist. It is only the component of IC engine that encountered failure from different origins like thermo-mechanical stress, wear, fatigue, extreme temperatures etc. In the present works the problem of piston seizure failure of a four stroke diesel engine we observed one seized engine piston of four stroke heavy….
