Many wind turbine gearboxes suffer from overload problem and frequent maintenance and the inability to start at low velocity wind speed condition (called as cut-in), in particular due to the inertial due to structural significance. The amplification of the wind generation depends on the use of mechanical gears and gearboxes for speed change once again in influences the frequency as constant speed derived from the turbine is yet another challenge. An emerging alternative to gearing system is the application of a magnetic gear as it offers significant pros such as reduced noise and vibration, free from maintenance, and inherent ...

Problem: Heat generated from carbon-based fuel combustion or nuclear reactions consumes limited resources, and creates waste products harmful to the environment and to living organisms.
Solution: An unprecedented development reveals a method that creates heat inexpensively by efficiently releasing the energy stored within water molecules. Water as a fuel presents a readily abundant, low cost source of heat energy. This heat, when used to power a steam turbine generator, produces electricity, without the environmental hazards and operational complications (obtaining, handling and delivering, for example) of using carbon-based or nuclear fuels.
Our laboratory unit demonstrates this ...
USA alone produces 254 million tons of trash and only 34.3 % percent of that is recycled. Maximum amount of the trash is dumped in Landfills, of which only few are left and that too with a life of 5-10 years. Moreover, in USA, people living below the 50% poverty level are required to pay more than 35% of their annual income for their energy bills on an average. Moreover, on a larger scale According to "ACTION4ENERGY," a United Nations Development Programme, about 1.3 billion people worldwide live without electricity. There are also 3 billion people living without clean ...

In the history of transportation, electricity has always replaced fossil fuels when a commercially viable technology was available. Historically, major manufacturers have invested in electric trains and cars and it’s clear that electric aircraft are next. However, none of the current solutions for electric planes provide engines that are adapted for large scale commercial flights. Whilst "Electric aircraft are a key element in our research for the future of aviation" as Airbus' CEO Tom Enders outlines, most efforts have focused on the classic "electromagnetic" engine for its incomparable efficiency. Yet current technologies do not offer sufficient power density for ...
Swarm Power & the Power-Blox 200 series
Power-Blox develops, produces and distributes intelligent swarm electrification solutions. It has developed a technology (Swarm Power) which allows the setup of a swarm-grid with a decentralized architecture and no centralized control. The system is self-learning and self-regulating; it regulates power production, storage and distribution in the grid intelligently and autonomously.
The Power-Blox 200 series is a modular energy system producing AC power from 200W up to the multiple Kilowatt range which serves as a “portable socket” to off-grid energy demands. It is plug & power and requires no configuration, specific know-how or maintenance. ...
Offshore wind energy is growing fast around the world. Its development is tied to, among other things, solid, reliable and immediate access for turbine-related operation and maintenance services [O&M].
Some of the components of the biggest and more advanced offshore turbines could reach up to 150 tons.
At the present time, the maintenance of those heavy components is conducted by large floating crane vessels, not economically viable, due to its limited availability, mobilization times and high day rates (>$300.000/day).
On the other hand, jack-up vessels are a more affordable and available option. Nevertheless, they have a limited range of operation: the ...
Solids are better insulators than liquids and there are materials that are more dense in their solid rather than their liquid phase. These two facts are at the heart of an innovative way to improve efficiency in concentrated solar energy plants. Formation of crusts of solid phase change materials reduces efficiency during operation. Addition of an electrically heated surface on the heat exchanger, intermittently operated, allows gravity to remove solid crusts, increasing operational efficiency.
Concentrated Solar Plants (CSP) produce electricity from the sun’s energy. Solar energy is transferred via collectors and receiver(s) to a power cycle where a working ...
For decades the water bottles have been packaged with plastic shrink wrap all around the world. This entry introduces an innovative sustainable idea to substitute this unsustainable amount of plastic with recycled paper.
The following parameters were considered crucial:
1. Usage of a paper along its life cycle instead of plastic mass (less production energy consumption, minimum disposal, and optimizations benefits due to recycling ability.
2. Less or equal "time", "cost", and "energy consumption" during the paper life cycle and on while water manufacturing line (financial cost, time consumption on production line, manufacturing expenses, and cheaper life cycle)

The present project is about thermal insulation for rooftops made with recycled crumb rubber from scrap tires that responds to ecological and social problems, such as impacts to the ecosystem caused by dumped tires (fires/groundwater pollution…), health impacts (vectors/fires...), as well as excessive consumption of electricity in rooms without insulation that lead to higher fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. TermoLLanta is an active thermal rooftop insulation system that also filters and retains rainwater and increases the life of the waterproofing.
This product is defined as an "active” insulation, that differs from ‘passive’ insulating materials, which hinder ...
The purpose of this invention is the separation of liquid and solid phases of different densities by rotation of a cylinder in order to subject them to centrifugal forces. Centrifugal pumps suffer from and are limited by problems with cavitation, corrosion, impeller wear, lack of prime, leakage, overheating, and surge. These problems are reduced or eliminated in this invention.
Pumps normally require a power source. In this Centrifugal Phase Separator, the only purpose of the power source (motor) is rotation of the cylindrical component. The motor can be placed either above or below the rotating cylinder, depending on the ...
