- Remote Monitoring of on-grid PV systems
This work focuses on identifying factors that negatively impact the performance of photovoltaic (PV) systems in Jordan and designing a monitoring system to address these issues. The monitoring system continuously collects data from the PV system, analyzes it, and alerts the owner or installer of any inverter issues via SMS and dial calls. The system uses an SCT013 electrical current sensor, Arduino UNO, real-time clock board, and SIM808 GSM GPRS GPS Module to monitor the RMS current and send alerts if it drops below a specified threshold. The system was tested on an electric load and was able to generate alarms when the load was turned off.
- Techno-Economic study of large PV system in Jordan
This area relies on RE growth. Utility-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) panels are one of the cheapest energy sources. PV cell production has increased, lowering photovoltaic system costs. This paper examines the technical and economic viability of a 1 MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) farm in Amman City, Jordan. This study used technical and economic performance indicators and PVSyst Software to simulate market conditions, materials like solar panels and power inverters, build-on-systems (BOS), and cost factors in creating a large-scale PV utility. 1 MWp systems cost (400) kJOD. The economic study showed long-term financial benefits for the solar power farm. The payback period PBP is (2.23) years, the internal rate of return IRR is (36%), the net present value NPV is (2,816) kJOD, and the levelized cost of energy LCOE is (0.02) JOD is all for the solar PV farm. The PV farm will avoid 20470.4 tons of CO2 over its lifespan.

This project is a development of EV cabin heating systems which usually depends on electric resistance heaters, The system will operate using a special storage tank that stores High-temperature coolant from the electric motor and the inverter and preserves it for enough time (approximately 72 hours) to warm up the vehicle cabin, This project result in reducing power consumption that usually reaches 3 KW if the regular resistance heater is used, Preventing high current draining when starting the vehicle, taking advantage of the existing heat from other vehicle components that produce heat, Increasing electric vehicles range by 30% due to the reduced electric resistance heater usage and reducing the time to warm up the cabin to a few seconds keeping in mind that the electric resistance heater needs much more time.
A huge number of children`s deaths occur annually as a consequence of being left accidentally inside a locked car in hot weather, although there has been a development of alarm systems to alert parents of the presence of kids inside the car after they leave, a lot of children still lose their life. Since children`s bodies can get hot 5 times faster than adult`s bodies, the majority of death cases occur due to hyperthermia, the main objective of this project is to develop a system that can save children`s lives in case of forgotten inside a locked car by maintaining the temperature inside near the acceptable range. This system is designed to use sensors, a microcontroller, and a coolant device, sensors will collect data and send it to the microcontroller, and depending on the case, the microcontroller sends a command signal to turn on the coolant device or to stay off. By thermoelectric cooling, we reduce the ambient temperature of a (12cm×16cm×21cm) box from 31°C to 17 °C within 15 minutes.
- Vehicle to Vehicle Bidirectional Charger
This graduation project focuses on developing a Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) charging system for electric vehicles (EVs). The system aims to alleviate the range anxiety faced by EV owners by allowing for the sharing of charge between two EVs. The V2V charging system offers a convenient solution for EVs that are stranded far from charging stations.
The V2V charger is based on a DC-DC buck-boost converter, which enables bidirectional charging. This results in a more efficient and faster charging process, with reduced power losses. The charger also incorporates the use of the Battery Management system in new cars, enabling bidirectional power transfer. Additionally, the V2V charger includes safety features such as protection against overvoltage and over-current, as well as temperature monitoring, making it a reliable and secure solution for EV owners.
