This converter solves multiple problems for the energy industry. It can develop and modernize the national power system. Also, it can be applied to inventions that are superior to existing power technologies and it can extend the scope of theoretical research and practical application of energy systems.
Improving energy systems is done by increasing their power, the rotary converter system obtaining a superior power, theoretically infinite against existing static converters that have limited power.
Idea applies to farms with photovoltaic panels and wind turbines generating DC electrical energy and using this converter can power consumers such ...
The invention relates to heat engines and, more specifically, to positive displacement internal combustion engines, and is particularly concerned with very large rotary internal combustion engines fueled by solid particulate fuels like coal dust, destined to drive electric current generators, and intended to replace large steam turbines offering at least 50% overall efficiency typical for large Diesel engines, in comparison with ~40% overall efficiency of typical steam boiler-steam turbine assembly. Thus the invention solves the problem of building very large internal combustion positive displacement engines capable of revolving with very large rotational speeds (e.g. 3000-3600 rev./min, like steam turbines) ...
GM Offers an Improved Safety Technology for Electrical Boxes
Electrical safety is important in every location. Knowing the difference between an electrical device that is energized with electricity and one that is de-energized is important if you are going to perform work in an electrical panel box. Many electrical panel boxes are complicated and just because main the power disconnect lever is pulled, it does not mean that it is safe. Energy can still be present that can cause shocks, arc flashes, or even electrocution to those individuals servicing the panel. Possible sources may be incorrect wiring, external device ...

As Marcus Lemonis from CNBC’s “The Profit” says, “Bad inventory management can bankrupt your business; if you have inventory just sitting around for years, it's just like burning money." Despite its high importance there are still 46% of SME’s in the US that do not manage their inventory. And 83% of businesses that do, suffer from stocking problems. This is because existing solutions require big investment in both time and money. They are based on manual data entry and software estimations which are prone to error.
Smart Inventory System is a combination of hardware devices and software services. It ...

The SMART SEA RESCUE WATERCRAFT is a programmable GPS controlled autonomous rescue speed boat. It may alternatively be configured as a self driving hydrofoil, catamaran, or amphibious hovercraft. It can be preprogrammed and sent unmanned to a GPS location to return rescue a navy sailor, downed Air Force pilot, an accident survivor in a life jacket, disabled boat, life boat, or raft, or to a remote island to return rescue stranded destitute people in danger. It can deliver food, water, medicine, clothing, flashlights, tools, or other necessary supplies through dangerous waters to people in need. It is equipped with ...

CygniSearch is developing a single-stage centrifugal turbopump system, equipped with the first split-ball, inverse blade impeller, designed to reduce erosion to the turbine and peripheral turbopump system components. Contained in a specially, designed compression housing, the SilverSun turbine has the potential to reduce rocket engine failure rates, optimize launch vehicle performance, and improve space program safety margins.
About one in twenty rocket launches fail every year costing insurers of space missions, launch vehicle operators and their customers billions of dollars. Blade fatigue due to the effects caused by cavitation in conventional, liquid propellant rocket engine turbopump systems, ...

In these days, wars and battles have significantly been increasing, and due to this reason, science and engineering are playing a pivotal role in the military field. New inventions and machines are appearing very frequently. More importantly, most of these machines are unmanned drones and robots. The reason of this is that these machines reduce loss of human life, and they are more efficient than humans. For this reason, the superpower countries have allocated tremendous amount of money for robotics and drones fields. For example, most of the U.S air strikes are done by unmanned drones. Plus, there are ...

Approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease each year.
The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation estimates that more than 400,000 people in the United States and about 2.5 million people around the world have MS. These patients with different level of abilities need different assistive technologies to improve their quality of life. In addition to that, there are multiple research projects going on to increase the abilities of soldiers, athletes and workers.
We believe that augmenting humans with smart general purpose, wearable robotics gives them the opportunity to interact with their environment in a much more sophisticated manner.
We have developed ...

An oil spill is the release of a liquid petroleum hydrocarbon into the environment, especially marine areas, due to human activity, and is a form of pollution, sometimes even causing deaths of life forms on big water areas. It usually takes months, or even years to liquidate the results of the oil spills.
The working principle of the automatic oil spill cleaner is similar to the iRobot's one, which is popular in the modern homes. The automatic oil spill cleaner is a robotic submarine with strong pumps, that enter both oil and water, and water separator filter, that are ...
