Dr. E. Anil Kumar addressing the webinar.
The event began at 10 a.m. with a warm welcome to the resource person. The event witnessed nearly 100 participants. The speaker Dr. E. Anil Kumar, Associate Professor, IIT, Tirupati began the session with a striking overview on refrigeration system as the most prominent system now a days. He explained that the absorption of refrigeration system works on the principal of low grade heat energy. The expert expounded the use of green energy and low grade waste heat as the key aspect of future development of absorption of refrigeration system. He further reflected his idea about on energy conservation methodologies with various recent advancement in the technology. The videos on ‘Energy conservation and absorption technology’ were played during the regular interval during the session that helped students to get in – depth understanding of the topic. The participants interacted actively with the resource person. The webinar was successful and met the objective for which it was planned and organized.
