Autonomous, mobile and decentralised power supply for the electrical operation of lighting equipment for information boards, of sensors and electrical components, of microsystems, smart phones and mobile computer technology is increasingly gaining importance. Under the spatial conditions of solar radiation autonomous power generation by solar cells is in many cases suitable to perform this task. In this case solar panels are used that generate electric energy in place and make it available via intermediate storage and an electronic management system in due time with the required current and voltage.
Up to now, the solar panels in use have ...

In recent years many families with their young children for reasons such as war have migrated to Europe by sea. The migration route of these familie is often through the sea and in many cases their boat sank and they were killed. Remember Alan a three-year-old boy who drowned in the Mediterranean Sea and his body reached the shore.
From 13 April to 30 September 2015 more than 25 incidents occurred in the Mediterranean Sea alone killing more than 2307 people just in the last 6 months. From statistics wa can conclude that from 2007 to ...
Modifying the existing roadways to create electricity from the sun has many advantages and has been explored in some detail. After all, if the huge surface area of roads could be utilized there would be a massive amount of power available produced by the sun.
Unfortunately, many times these designs change the structure of the road. Trying to create a robust yet transparent housing for photovoltaic cells can be difficult, especially with car exhaust adding to the opacity of the road. Additionally, the lack of asphalt can create a slicker surface and influence vehicle behavior.
Thermoelectric power generation has ...

To minimize health impacts of air pollution, we designed and developed a novel diesel exhaust control device: the Electrostatic Screen Battery for Emissions Control (ESBEC). The ESBEC is a two-stage electrostatic precipitator with separate charging and collection sections (Fig.1). As the pollutant particles are pulled into the device, they are imparted an electrical charge produced by an ion source such as carbon fiber or tungsten wire (1st stage). The electrically charged pollutant particles then travel into the collector (2nd stage). The collector consists of multiple pairs of conductive screens, in which one screen of each pair is supplied ...

Nuclear fusion energy has been physicists’ dream since 1953. The US has spent $29.1B and is still several decades and many $ billion before sustained net electrical energy output is obtained. Thermonuclear fusion is old-hat for the world’s nuclear weapons. While both fusion weapons and fusion energy rely on fusing Lithium-Deuterium into Helium, thermonuclear fusion relies on a fission primary explosion comprised of highly concentrated U235 to set off the fusion reaction while nuclear fusion energy have tried (without success) to use non-fission means.
Electrical energy from nuclear fusion can be obtained by exploding a nuclear bomb in ...
Objective: Fossil fuel depletion and environmental degradation due to vehicular emissions is an alarming factor which necessitates alternative fuels and efficient engine operation. The main aim of this project is to reduce the emission, improve the performance, find the suitable alternates to fossil fuel for a CI engine.
In this project, an auto-catalytic Ni-P-W coating was carried out over the piston ring and liner which acts as a solid lubricant coatings and reduces the frictional loss during reciprocating action (main constituent of frictional loss). Two types of tri-fuel systems were used to substitute diesel, namely:
Using the design of the Stirling motor and some adequations we will create the first personal perpetual motion machine as a home energy plant, the first electic plant for the people, and also a power plant for the people who don't want to pay again the electric bill.
Imagine a world with no more electric power plants, a world where every house has its own power plant, a world without limits of energy. With this personal perpetual motion machine we will be able to move on our electric cars, our cell phones and why not our smart ...

The Photovoltaic Wind Turbine for Geothermal Heat Pump would lend to the enhancement of the sustainable energy that is available for production by utilizing photovoltaic solar panels mounted on a wind turbine. The wind turbine generator powers a geothermal heat pump.
The solar cells produce electrical energy that is distributed to a generator that enhances the rotation of the wind turbine shaft. The shaft rotates the generator and provides the power needed for the geothermal heat pump unit.
Solar energy that activates the wind turbine generating electrical energy for the operation of the heat pump and ...

We have designed, built and tested/installed a very special pipe support that drains liquid/water from the underside of the pipe that is being supported.
Our tests (many) have proved that the support also dries itself with the result that liquid (the main cause of pipe coating damage) does not blister the coating, thereby substantially increasing the lifespan of installed piping.
The main applications are for the following industries:
Marine, Chemical plants, Off-shore oil platforms, Food, Beverage and Medical manufacturing/processing plants.
This design is ...
The proposed portable energy generation system will enable the conversion of either wind energy or solar energy, whichever is available, into useful electricity to power increasingly vital electronics. It is a collapsible wind turbine, integrated with solar cells.
The proposed technology utilizes an innovative design to combine a wind turbine with solar cells, so that the total system is both light weight and compact to enable personal carry. It is a downward wind turbine with the hub housing in a teardrop shape upstream of the blades, so that this system adjusts itself to face the wind automatically without the ...
