MEng (Mechanical Engineering)
Thesis project: Looking at using hydrogen fuel cells to power quadcopters. This should increase the flight time of some quadcopters from around 30/40 min to 2 hours. This will allow numerous applications of using quadcopters to be more feasible. This project is being done in collaboration with HySA (Hydrogen South Africa) Systems.
Solar Thermal Energy Systems: learnt how to simulate and design CSP systems.
Advanced Design: Learnt how to program optimization algorithms and how to solve optimization problems.
Industrial Heat exchangers: Learnt how to analyze and design heat exchanger systems, focusing on cooling towers for power stations.
Advanced Control Systems: learnt about implementing multi-input-multi-output control.
Numerical Methods: Learnt how to efficiently solve large matrix problems.
Thermofluids: I helped students with their tutorials. This subject comprises of thermodynamics, fluid dynamics and heat transfer. I gained a more in-depth understanding of these fields by teaching it.
