Conventional sources of energy have been depleting at an alarming rate, which makes future sustainable development of energy use very difficult. In addition, global warming or climate change caused by human activities and conventional energy system technologies has shown dramatic impact on all lives on the earth. Thus, the main aims of the Energy Systems Research Group are to improve the energy performance of existing systems in order to save the energy and reduce the size and cost of the systems and to develop new systems with less global warming impact. The research projects are both analytical and experimental studies on related topics such as thermal systems, renewable energy, transport phenomena, heat transfer enhancement, air-conditioning and refrigeration technologies, electronic cooling devices, solar heating and cooling, fire protection, drying and combustion.
The applied research topics include:
- Heat exchanger
- Solar air heater
- Vortex tube
- Vortex combustor
- Cooling of turbine blades
- Thermodynamic of combustion and gasification processes
- Vapour compression refrigeration systems and not-in-kind cooling technologies e.g. magnetic refrigeration systems

With the management team of Pattaya City and the heads of relevant government agencies which also attended the meeting at Meeting Room 131, Pattaya City Hall.
Faculty of Engineering at Sriracha has cooperated with the Republic of Korea (South Korea) to carry out the demonstration project to create a demonstration system: Public transport by electric vehicles, public vehicle management system, charging system, energy storage system, energy management system and centralized monitoring control system. This is to make Pattaya City as a model city for efficient, clean, non-polluting and sustainable public transport. It also supports Pattaya as a completely smart city. By bringing the tuktuk and transportation systems to use environmentally friendly solar energy to replace fuels. To facilitate the people and tourists in this matter, the Prime Minister of Pattaya suggested to the Faculty of Engineering at Sriracha, Kasetsart University Sriracha Campus and the Thai Electric Vehicle Association return to study the impact on the former entrepreneurs who work in the area as well. Including suggesting the establishment of a committee by inviting the city of Pattaya to participate in presenting information that will be useful for the implementation of the project further.
For those who participated in the demonstration project from other agencies, it consisted of Dr. Thongchai Chinapan, representative from the Thai Electric Vehicle Association, Mr. Narawat Adam, the representative from the Ministry of Industry, Mr. Montri Ruengsinghi, the representative from the Development Project, Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC).
