This interesting project gives the University the leading position in the sector of energy efficient building.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Risk management of the effects of solar activity: Device and procedure of obtaining in real time and high resolution, the Local Geomagnetic Disturbance at middle latitudes.The research team specialized in Space Meteorology within the Space Research Group of the University of Alcalá, has developed a device and procedure that, based on the measurement of the local geomagnetic field, is able to estimate the magnetic disturbance component associated to solar activity at middle latitudes. The determination of the magnetic disturbance component is especially relevant in cases of sporadic but explosive solar phenomena. From the perspective of the actual user, the present invention constitutes an essential element in the risk management of the effects of solar activity on vulnerable technologies, both ground-based and satellite-based (electric power, rail transport, terrestrial and positioning navigation systems, radio and satellite communication systems ...), increasing the capacities of public administrations, civil protection and emergencies and the companies themselves, in order to prepare a successful strategy for adverse conditions related to the solar activity. The group is looking for collaboration and/or commercial agreements with the Central Administration, Civil Protection, Critical Infrastructure, Electric Power companies, Rail Network, Oil pipelines companies, Gas Pipelines companies, Insurance firms, etc...

Comprising both shunt and series elements (inverters), UPQC compensates for sags and swells, unbalance and distortion (harmonics)in the supply current and supply voltage respectively. UPQC delivers cost savings, increased reliability and enhanced electrical power network functionality. It also employs modular control software and novel techniques for load side short circuit protection of series inverters.
Fundació URV posted this:New device and method to detect the temperature remotelyThe technology allows to detect the temperature remotely using the emission of light by nanoparticles of a luminescent material doped with lanthanide ions (Yb+3, Er+3, Tm+3 and HO+3, among others) deposited on the object to find its temperature. Excitation with infrared radiation of these luminescent particles produces light emission in different regions of the visible light collected by a sensor to obtain an intensity ratio.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Controller and communication system development for grid-converters applied to power quality and renewable energies.The research group "Electronic engineering applied to renewable energy systems", has developed controllers and communications systems for power electronic converters that operate as an interface to the power supply systems in order to improve power quality, to facilitate the efficient use of energy and to impulse the expansion of smart grids. The group is looking for technical cooperation agreements.
uacoopera posted this:PCM Smart Window Protection SystemComparatively with the typical window shading solutions, the present innovation can store energy in different working positions, without blocking out the direct radiation or direct sunlight into the interior of the building spaces. The developed system uses phase change materials (PCMs), not only in the window protection but also for the complete shutter solution, which allows its optimization and uniqueness for solar gains. The system developed is adaptable to any type of weather conditions.

Universitat de Lleida posted this:A dynamic thermal system for reducing energy demands in buildingsDARWIN-PCM is a disruptive dynamic thermal system that allows building envelopes to modify their thermal properties. The invention DARWIN-PCM consists of a dynamic thermal system to be used in buildings to minimize their energy consumption for space heating and cooling. The invention can be implemented in any sort of building envelope including walls, floors, roofs, fenestrations, and doors. It is composed of several layers of materials, one of them is mobile and contains a material with capacity to absorb and release high amount of heat - such as phase- change materials (PCM).
