BPE e.K. posted this:Process for cooling Photovoltaic ModulesPhotovoltaic modules generating electric energy from global radiation often heat up under high global radiation values and loos electric power under these conditions, offen called voltage drop, We have developed different cooling methods which reduce temperature of photovoltaic modules and at the same time generate additional electric energy during cooling. For this cooling process we use thermogenerators. Based on weather situation cooling of photovoltaic modules could result in higher electric energy.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Intelligent regulation system of pedestrian crossings by monitoring the waiting areas and adaptive traffic light controlThe research group Intelligent Vehicles and Traffic Technologies of the Automation Department of the University of Alcalá has developed a system that allows the intelligent control of the opening and closing times of a traffic light that governs a pedestrian crossing, especially in urban areas. It is a road safety system that ensures that pedestrian traffic at pedestrian crossings is carried out safely, while optimizing the opening and closing times of traffic lights, achieving an improvement in traffic flow in urban areas. For this purpose, the monitoring of waiting areas for pedestrian crossings is carried out by means of a stereoscopic vision system with infrared illumination. The images provided by the stereoscopic vision system are processed by a computer, obtaining information regarding the presence of pedestrians in the waiting areas. This information is used to act on a traffic light that controls the pedestrian crossing. The group is looking for licensing agreements, technical cooperation agreements, manufacturing agreements and commercial agreements with technical assistance with companies in the sector of transport infrastructure and traffic safety as well as public institutions, such as municipalities and councils.
Energy & Waste posted this:Biolimp-MPdry. Technology for biogas cleaningBiogas is a dirty gas. Therefore, it requires a previous cleaning to be used as biofuel. There are many components to be removing, among them, water vapor, siloxane, halogenated hydrocarbons and H2S, all of them, affects the good performance of the CHP system. The Biolimp-MPdry technology is a multipropose technology that allows the biogas cleaning with a very lower costs and high performace yield.
Energy & Waste posted this:Biogas dryer. For biogas water vapor removingBiolimp-Dry technology combines the cooling and condensation techniques, allowing to achieve elimination efficiency of over 95% depending on the working temperature with low operating costs. This can include a washer-recuperator, which in addition to minimizing the energy needs of the operation, allows to wash the biogas with its own condensates, which produces a partial reduction of the H2S and NH3, that accompany the biogas, reason why it can be considered a multipurpose technology.

University of Huelva posted this:New method for manufacturing magnetic cores by powder metallurgyMagnetic cores in amorphous state are usually produced by placing together very thin amorphous ribbons from a material obtained by the melt-spinning technique. The new patented method produces the amorphous material by mechanical alloying, a traditional process in the powder metallurgy field. This technique allows a higher control on the amorphisation process and the properties of the amorphous obtained powders. These powders are then consolidated by the very quick process known as Electrical Resistance Sintering (also Electrical Discharge Consolidation/Sintering can be used). A final amorphous material, without the typical frontier between ribbons of melt spinned materials, which clearly affect properties, is obtained.
Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla posted this:PROCESS FOR PERFORMING TRANSESTERIFICATION REACTIONS USING ANIONIC CLAYS AND RESULTING PRODUCTS.The present invention refers to a process for performing transesterification reactions, mainly for obtaining alkyl ester from fatty acids and/or glycerine, more particularly for producing biodisel, which comprises the following stages: reaction of animal fats and/or vegetable oils either pure or used, with an alcohol at a temperature of from about 40 DEG C to about 300 DEG C in the presence of a catalyst that comprises the mixed oxides M2+OM3+2O3, M2+OMp+2OpM3+2O3 or mixtures thereof, where M2+ is a divalent cation, M3+ is a trivalent cation and Mp+ is at least a divalent or trivalent cation or a mixture thereof obtained by the calcination of materials, where the catalyst, previous the activation to be used as a catalyst, presents the X-ray diffraction pattern characteristic of the anionic clays which have a molar ratio M2+/M3 of 1 to 10, thus forming alkyl esters from fatty acids which are separated from the alcohol without reacting and from the glycerine, by decantation, filtration, centrif ugation and/or solid-liquid extraction.

Furthermore, old buildings frequently suffer from damp and condensation problems. FRIDS is an indoor insulation system that guarantees heat insulation and moist removal sustainable solution for ground-contact wall fragments, fire walls, reveals, etc. and offers a permanent solution to this problems.
University of Huelva posted this:Measurement system for the identification and accurate determination of distorting loads in electrical networks and microgridsThe only measurement of distortion level in a network can highlight the need for action to control it. Among those actions is, for example, the use of power filters. However, the determination of the most suitable point where the filter must be connected and its most appropriate configuration requires further analysis of the micro-network (a subset of nodes in the network with different loads connected to each). Therefore, an additional study becomes necessary to establish the responsibility of each load in global distortion levels. In addition, the establishment of the model of the most responsible loads is also necessary in order to decide the filter configuration. In this sense, the load may be voltage distorting or current distorting. All this information is provided by the device of the invention. Indeed, the device, besides distributing the responsibility for overall levels of distortion between each agent, reports whether loads are voltage harmonics or current harmonic sources. This information is the most relevant to determining the power filter settings that best mitigate the distortion in each network node.
