TREND: Hybrid PV And Thermoelectric Device To Harvest Solar Energy More Efficiently
Hybrid power devices are combinations of different power technologies. Hybrid power plants often contain a renewable energy component such as photovoltaic (PV) that is combined with wind power, thermoelectric power, solar thermal power, or a system like battery storage or solar thermal storage. Thermoelectric generators are semiconductor devices that have no moving parts and convert heat directly into electricity. When combined with thermal storage they can provide electricity round the clock at as low as $0.06 per kilowatt-hour and could achieve 16% efficiency. PV cells convert the UV and visible regions of the solar spectrum while the thermoelectric modules use the infrared region to produce electrical energy. Thus, combining both these systems in a hybrid system provides enhanced performance. While PV panels convert up to 20% of solar energy into electricity, the solar thermal collectors capitalise on the untapped heat energy of the PV system, thereby increasing the energy production efficiency while occupying less space

PROJECT: A Python Based GUI For AM Modulation
Amplitude modulation (AM) is a signal modulation technique that is widely used by radio stations for transmitting their programmes. This project proposes a Python GUI based simulator to study AM. A user can vary various parameters—such as modulation index, amplitude and frequency of modulating signal, and carrier signal—and observe the output. The project can be used to simulate the signal modulation by radio engineers for designing different carrier signals and their modulation and demodulation

PROJECT: World’s First Programmable Smart Watch With Fitness Tracking
A smart watch monitors and tracks the wearer’s location and health data besides showing time and date. But it usually costs Rs 5,000 to 50,000 and is not programable. The smart watch suggested here can be made for less than Rs 2,000 and will perform all the basic smart watch functions. It can even be programmed for additional functions and customised according to your need to track, for instance, your blood oxygen percentage
