Self-Aligning Solar Panel: Construction of a Self-Aligning Platform for Solar Panels

The purpose of this project is to create a self-aligning platform for solar panels for better utilization of the renewable solar energy source that is available. The difference between present self-aligning solutions and the proposed one Continue reading

The Electric Jetpack

This bachelor’s thesis aims to investigate the possibility of reconstructing the traditional Jetpack to a more environmental-friendly version, powered by an electric propulsion system and Li-Ion batteries. Using existing methods of Continue reading

Industrial Solid-State Energy Harvesting: Mechanisms and Examples

This paper explores the potential for solid-state energy harvesting in industrial applications. In contrast to traditional heat recovery, the output of solid-state devices is electricity, which can be readily used in virtually any plant. The progress in Continue reading

Preparing an Existing Diesel Power Plant for a Wind Hybrid Retrofit

There are many reasons why diesel power systems are so widespread. Diesel generators are by far the lowest capital cost electric generation technology in the sub-MW size range. They are a well-established and well-understood technology and there is a Continue reading
