The main field of research was that of
steam projects. Our main solar steam system is perfected to such an
extend that all our end users were satisfied. Many hospitals and
medical colleges are approaching us to get the benefit of this new
device which will not only save thte atmosphere from pollution but also
highly beneficial financially. People are realizing the great benefit
of using solar energy. This was one of our main objectives!
Another great accomplishment was the installation of the first
commercially viable and fully satisfactory solar block steam system in
Holy Family Hospital , Mandar, Ranchi for their autoclave. It saves a
lot of precious electricity, and also a lot of time as solar steam
autoclaves works much faster than electrical heating. The system was
designed by the now famous scientist, Wolfgang Scheffler and developed
at our workshop at Phulwarisharif and perfected by the research scholar
Mr. Michael Tyroller. This is very useful for medium size steam cooking
also. From the reports we have received, the hospital administration is
truly happy at the successful functioning of the system. Mr. Michael
Tyroller, who did his research here, last year secured first rank in
the German University . One disadvantage with the Scheffler cooker was
that the cooking had to be done near the reflector. In the block steam
system that problem is taken care of and cooking done at a convenient
place close to the plant.
We also developed a Chapatti Cooking Device with Block Heating System
that has been added to our existing Solar Park at the premises. We have
also added to the Park, the solar block steam system designed for
cooking, which is the product of the hardwork of two research students
from Zurich University , Switzerland - Mr. Adrian and Mr. Benja. Both
the students spent about three months in our place, perfecting their
technology. We are at present busy with developing Solar Tunnel Dryer
Systems. We have started getting request from North East India and
other places for Solar Dryers for drying and preserving agricultural
On the photovoltaic front, we installed in coloration with SPRERI,(
Sardar Patel Renewal Energy Research Institute) two solar refrigerators
at Rural Health Centers at Ararghat, and Dumroan. We thank, the
Scientist Mr. Philip who braved the Bihar roads to make a hectic and
tedious trip to the rural sites. We are happy to inform that the
systems have been functioning well and giving an invaluable service in
preserving life-saving medicines. We are engaged in developing solar
tracking system for the photovoltaic system which can increase the
efficiency of the photovoltaic system by 40%.
Mr. Sharan, Scientist working in Canada who came on a home visit, took
interest in our work. He has contributed in developing a pedel-pumping
system attached to a cycle rickshaw, specially designed for rural India
. All you need is to pedel the rickshaw in a stationary position so as
to propel the motor to pump water to the first floor of your apartment.
On his earlier visit, Mr. Sharan developed a solar powered cycle
rickshaw. This particular research project is still to be perfected.
Block Steam System
Heat is stored
during the day. In the evening or even on next day's morning you can
produce steam for cooking, sterilisation or other purposes.
New Receivers for Scheffler-Reflectors
increase the efficiency of steam-generation with Scheffler-reflectors, new
types of receivers are constructed, build and tested.
Solar Steam Turbines with
This can be used
to produce electricity by using solar power
|Wind Mills for multiple purposes
This is ideal and cheapest way of
producing electricity, pump water etc. where wind energy is available.
|Peltier-Elements for power-generating and cooling
Peltier-Elements are solid-state
devices which can produce electricity out of an temperature difference.
In combination with an heat storage, you can generate power for
illumination in the evening without the need of batteries.
The other way round, Peltier-Elements can cool medicines or other
things, if you connect them to a solar panel.
