Low Wind Speed Turbine: Field Tests and Commercialization.

CAMES has developed technology for low wind speed turbine, and the project has reached the stage for field testing and commercialization. This project will fabricate 5kWp capacity turbines to be placed at strategic locations for field testing. The test data will be used for further product refinement. The project shall also study the commercialization potential of the turbines, and the aim is to prepare for a startup company. Joint supervision with Dr. S. Mathew

Application invited for: Master

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Study of Sub-surface Road Structures.

The project involves the survey of road sub-surface conditions in Brunei. The project will involve signal processing, data analytics, and system integration of GPR system for rapid roads.

Application invited for: Master

From Innovation To Commercialization of Perovskite Solar Cell.

The main aim of this project is to study the production process of Pervoskite Solar Cell (PSC). As various PSC structures are available, a selected type of PSC will be optimized for production. The product specification is at least 16% power conversion efficiency with module dimension of at 16 x 16 cm2. Joint supervision with Dr. NTRN Kumara
