  • AWARDS & MEMBERSHIP OF PROFESSIONAL BODIES
    1. Received the ‘Dana Chase Memorial Award’ for the best paper “A Novel Dehumidification Technique Using Electric Field” presented at the 45th International Appliance Technical Conference held at Madison, Wisconsin, USA, May 1994. Also received the ‘Best Presentation Award’ in the same conference. The technique involves high electric field to attract water molecules in the air to be removed from a closed room without condensation. It is a well known fact that water has a very high latent heat of condensation. As the process avoids condensation of moisture,it is highly energy efficient and can save significant level of energy consumption in dehumidifiers.
    1. Received Prime Minister’s Award for outstanding contribution in popularizing Solar Home System inBangladesh under the RERED Project (jointly financed by Govt. of Bangladesh and World Bank) implemented by Infrastructure Development Company Limited (IDCOL),Bangladesh, September 6, 2005. The author is the Chairman, Technical Standard Committee, IDCOL and is responsible for setting the standards for the components and gadgets to be disseminated in rural Bangladesh. The basic policy of the technical committee was to encourage local products to be incorporated in the solar PV packages along with the imported components like solar PV panels without sacrificing overall quality of the products. Such a policy has encouraged many small entrepreneurs to produce PV system components locally and saved significant amount of foreign exchange for the country, provided incentive to the local producers and ensured easy availability of the local services. The policy adopted by IDCOL has been highly successful and has set a new standard in disseminating solar PV systems in the South Asia region.
    1. Awarded ‘Gold Medal’ by the Bangladesh Academy of Sciences in 2005 for outstanding research contribution in the field of Engineering and Technology. Prof. Iaj Udding Ahmed, President, People’s Republic of Bangladesh handed out the award.

PUBLICATION OF BOOKS/CONTRIBUTED ARTICLES

  1. Anomalous Density of Water: The Mystery Unfolded’, M.Ferdouse Khan, A.Khan, M.Rezwan Khan & Fahima Khanam, Published by M.Rezwan Khan, October, 1996. In this book, a model for water has been proposed where water molecules remain in clustered form while in liquid state. As the temperature is increased, the cluster size gets smaller but inter cluster distance becomes larger. Decreasing cluster size contributes to the increase in density and the inter cluster distance on the other hand contributes towards density reduction. Resultant of these two opposite processes make the density maximum at 4oC and the results presented in the book agree quite closely to the experimental results. Papers on the cluster model explaining density variation and other properties like surface tension has been published in some international journals (see publication list of journal papers; no.19, 22, 36)
  2. Local Technology Development for Solar PV Systems’, M.Rezwan Khan, Ch. 13 of the book ‘Photovoltaic Technology for Bangladesh’, edited by A.K.M.Sadrul Islam and D.G.Infield, jointly published by Mechanical Engineering Dept., BUET, Dhaka, Bangladesh and Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology, Loughborough, U.K, March 2001. The chapter includes the designs of different Solar PV Components like charge controllers, efficient inverters for DC lamps, fans and pumps for solar PV home systems etc. used rural Bangladesh .
