Technology Reports of Kansai University (ISSN: 04532198) is a monthly peer-reviewed and open-access international Journal. It was first built in 1959 and officially in 1975 till now by kansai university, japan. The journal covers all sort of engineering topic, mathematics and physics. Technology Reports of Kansai University (TRKU) was closed access journal until 2017. After that TRKU became open access journal. TRKU is a scopus indexed journal and directly run by faculty of engineering, kansai university.

In this paper, we present our main results of the post occupancy evaluation of thermal comfort of two primary schools constructed following the same plane, situated in two different climate zones. The first stage of the work consisted on measurements using meteorological equipment’s. These measurements are used to quantify the physical parameters of the thermal atmosphere, such as temperature, rate of relative humidity and wind speed prevailing inside classrooms. The second step aims to support the results of the first stage and it is a psychological investigation using inquiry with users.
Environmental factors play a significant role in determining the PV system's performance, and the temperature is one factor. In the highland area, the temperature is lower than lowland but with relatively the same amount of irradiance. This paper compares the PV system's performance in the highlands (Semendo Darat Ulu) and the lowlands (Tanjung Enim). Semendo Darat Ulu has an elevation of 1100 meters above sea level and a temperature of ± 28.1 °C, sufficient for implementing solar power plants. Experimental data shows that Semendo Darat Ulu's PV system delivers better performance than Tanjung Enim's PV system. The average power generated by the PV system installed in Semendo Darat Ulu is 32.98 W, 4.21 W, or 115% higher than Tanjung Enim's PV system. It produced average power of 343.88 W per day, which is 77.99 W or 129 % more than the power produced by the PV system in Tanjung Enim. In Semendo Darat Ulu, the PV system pumped a total of 140,669 liters of water during the experiment, which means 33,915 liters or 132 % more water pumped by the PV system Tanjung Enim. Therefore, Semendo Darat Ulu highland has more potential for applying solar power plants than the lowland area.
