National Workshop on Solar Air Heaters: Fundamentals, Design and Applications was conducted during October 30-31, 2015
A two day national workshop on Solar Air Heaters: Fundamentals, Design and Applications was conducted during October 30, 2015-October 31, 2015 organised by Department of Mechanical Engineering or Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College.
Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the sun and is harnessed using a range of ever evolving technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaic, solar thermal energy, solar architecture and artificial photosynthesis. Solar air heating is a solar thermal technology in which the energy from the sun insolation is captured by an absorbing medium and used to heat air.
The workshop was designed for providing comprehensive knowledge, design and applications of solar air heating systems.
Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, Ludhiana (established in 1956), is one of the oldest and a premier Engineering Institute of India. The foundation stone of the college was laid by Honourable Dr. Rajendra Prasad Ji, President of India on 8th April, 1956.
All the under-graduate courses of this institute are accredited by National Board of Accreditation (NBA, AICTE) New Delhi. GNDEC is now an autonomous college under UGC act. The ISO-9001:2000 certified institution has seven B. Tech Courses; thirteen AICTE approved postgraduate courses besides being a QIP centre for PhD.
