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

Thermal Conversion of MSW – A Comparison of the System Performance: Direct Combustion Versus Conversion Through Syngas in CHP Plant

This project is a study comparing two different thermal conversion paths for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). The comparison will be focused on technical, economic and emission aspects. One path is the direct incineration of Continue reading
