On 22 January 2017, staff from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, namely Dr. Jasrul Jamani Jamian, Dr. Zulkarnain Ahmad Noorden and Ms. Fatihah Mohd Zaid, conducted an awareness programme on “Introduction to AC and DC: Application in Solar System” for about 70 students of Sekolah Menengah Agama Johor Bahru and Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Impian Emas. During the programme, the students were briefed on the application of a solar system and were given opportunities to conduct two hands-on experiments, i.e., DC analysis and circuit connection of PV system (consisted of AC and DC). The students were very interested in the programme and learned a lot of new things about a PV system. Through the programme, the staff hope that the students will better understand the application of a solar system in an attempt to promote the implementation of solar systems in Malaysia.
