The satisfaction and elation that accompany the successful completion of any task
would be incomplete without the mention of the people who have made it possible. It is a great
privilege to express my gratitude and respect to all those who have guided me and inspired me
during the period of the project work.
First and foremost, I express my sincere gratitude to my University professor
Fiedler Frank, Program Coordinator, Dalarna University, Borlange, Sweden who encouraged
and permitted me to have my project in the second semester itself.
I owe a lot to my supervisor Rönnelid Mats, Associate Professor of Energy and
Environmental Technology, Dalarna University, Borlange, Sweden for his valuable
suggestions, constructive criticism and encouragement for the project.
I deem it to be a great privilege in thanking my external supervisor Dr.Richard
Meyer, Founder and Managing Director (Suntrace GmbH) and Marko Schwandt, Advisor, Solar
Expert en Suntrace GmbH for giving an opportunity to work under him. Their guidance,
academic freedom and co-operation have helped me in completing my project.
My heartfelt thanks to Dr. S. Gomathinayagam, Director General, NIWE and Dr.G.Giridhar,

facilities for the completion of my masters project. I am indebted to Dr.Indradip Mitra,Senior
