SLSU teachers win in national research competition

Engr. Jonelle Tablada and Engr. Khorina O. Aguilar recently won the top spot in the Fair on Innovation, Research and Extension Services (FIRES) pitching competition during the State University and Colleges (SUC) Fair 2023 in Iloilo City.
Engr. Tablada presented their project entitled “PID-Controlled Automated Mixed-Type Multi-Commodity Dryer with Back-up Heater and SMS Notification,” which focuses on the development of an automated heat control dryer equipped with a PID algorithm to regulate thermal energy.
The research project has an innovative approach using clean drying method that employs green energy, ensuring sustainability, particularly in communities with no electricity.
Its system comprises a solar collector, a dryer, and a solar panel setup. By utilizing two heat sources – solar energy from the collector and a thermoelectric heating device – the dryer achieves optimal performance.
Engr. Tablada currently serves as the Head of the Affiliated Renewable Energy Center and is a faculty member of the Department of Electrical Engineering of the College of Engineering.
This year’s SUC Fair was hosted by West Visayas State University (WVSU) that took place on July 10-13 and attracted participants from various state universities and colleges (SUCs) across the Philippines. The event was graced by over 1,130 participants from 82 SUCs nationwide.
This year’s theme, “Navigating the Global Academic Landscape through Innovations, Cultural and Arts Preservation, and Higher Education Quality,” was reflected through a booth exhibit that showcased the diverse cultures, products, and innovations of the participating regions and schools.
