    • Eskom’s proposed strategic research into HVDC transmission. 

      Naidoo, Pat.; Bologna, F. F.; Muftic, Dzevad.; Ijumba, Nelson M.; Britten, Anthony C.; Pillay, Logan. (EE Publishers., 2005-07)
      Eskom has recently started a large research and development programme for the study of long-distance HVDC transmission in Sub-Saharan African conditions. This paper explains why the research is being done, what its strategic ...
    • Experimental optimization of nanostructured nickel oxide deposited by spray pyrolysis for solar cells application. 

      Ukoba, Kingsley O.; Inambao, Freddie Liswaniso.; Eloka-Eboka, Andrew Chukwudum. (Research India Publications., 2018)
      This study focused on the experimental optimization of nanostructured nickel oxide (NiO) for solar cell applications. The optimization procedure involved the variation of the precursor concentrations of nickel acetate with ...
    • Fabrication of affordable and sustainable solar cells using NiO/TiO2 P-N heterojunction. 

      Ukoba, Kingsley O.; Inambao, Freddie Liswaniso.; Eloka-Eboka, Andrew Chukwudum. (Hindawi., 2018)
      The need for affordable, clean, efficient, and sustainable solar cells informed this study. Metal oxide TiO²/NiO heterojunction solar cells were fabricated using the spray pyrolysis technique. The optoelectronic properties ...
    • Influence of concentration on properties of spray deposited nickel oxide films for solar cells. 

      Ukoba, Kingsley O.; Eloka-Eboka, Andrew Chukwudum.; Inambao, Freddie Liswaniso. (Elsevier., 2017)
      Spray pyrolysis technique was used to deposit various concentration of nickel oxide films on glass substrate. The Effect of varying precursor concentration on elemental, morphological and structural properties was ...

      Ukoba, Kingsley O.; Inambao, Freddie Liswaniso. (Research India Publications., 2018)
      This paper reports modelling and theoretical validation of a fabricated NiO/TiO2 P-N heterojunction solar cell. The solar cell equations were modelled and thereafter theoretical validation of the fabricated solar cells was ...
    • Modelling of broadband powerline communication channels. 

      Mulangu, Chrispin Tshikomba.; Afullo, Thomas Joachim Odhiambo.; Ijumba, Nelson M. (SAIEE Publications., 2011-12)
      This paper develops a new PLC model and investigates the impact of the load, line length, and diameter of the transmission line on the channel transfer function over the frequency range of 1-20 M Hz. The results show that ...
    • Quantitative Feedback Theory design of line current commutated HVDC control systems. 

      Chetty, Leon.; Ijumba, Nelson M. (SAIEE Publications., 2013)
      Line Current Commutated (LCC) HVDC systems consists of uncertain plants. These uncertainties are result of changes/disturbances in the ac networks or in the LCC HVDC system itself. Further uncertainties can be introduced ...
    • Rural electrification using overhead HVDC transmission lines. 

      Chetty, Leon.; Ijumba, Nelson M. (Energy Research Centre., 2012)
      One of mankind’s greatest modern challenges is poverty alleviation. The provision of electricity can greatly assist in this regard. The tapping of small amounts of power from an HVDC transmission line represents a solution ...
