If the cell is part of a thermoelectric generator, the device allows the conversion of the heat produced by incident radiation into electrical energy, due to the temperature difference established in the cell. This technology can also be used to take advantage of the residual heat of machines or electrical circuits.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Graphene-based electroactive fluids for Energy Storage Researchers from the Spanish National Research Council at the Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia- CIN2 (CSIC) and the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) have recently developed a novel type of nanocarbon-based fluids for energy storage in flow cells. They can be used for a wide range of systems that require high power and medium energy densities such as distributed and smart grid applications, stand-alone power systems, load balancers, uninterruptible power supply, etc. The technology has been proof as prototype and shows high performance, fast charge-discharge and efficient cyclability (98% after 1.500 cycles). Industrial partners are being sought to collaborate and/or exploit the existing know-how through a patent license agreement.

Universidad de Alicante posted this:New metal-free electrocatalysts for fuel cellsThe Carbon Materials and Environment Research Group of the University of Alicante has developed a new method for obtaining carbon materials with excellent properties such as electrocatalysts in fuel cells or metal-air batteries. The process is based on the thermal treatment of polyaniline (or its derivatives) at high temperature and allows to obtain metal-free carbon materials with a high performance, in a very simple, fast way and in a single stage. These novel materials are characterized by their excellent catalytic activity and selectivity in the oxygen reduction reaction in alkaline medium, they are very stable and resistant to methanol and carbon monoxide poisoning, and above all, they stand out for their low manufacturing cost, which makes them promising candidates to replace the current commercial platinum-based catalysts. We are looking for companies interested in acquiring this technology for commercial exploitation.
Centre Technology Transfer CITTRU posted this:Carbon composites based on bacterial biomass for manufacturing of electrode materialsThe subject of the offer is a method of manufacturing of carbon-based composites for electrode materials. These composites are built of electrode active phase nanoparticles (e.g. metallic or metal oxides) and a carbon matrix obtained from bacterial biomass. Living organisms serve both as the component capable to capture the nanoparticles, and as a source of biocarbon support providing high dispersion and stabilization of nanoparticles, as well as high electrical conductivity of the material. Application: electrocatalytic active electrode materials, e.g. in ORR reactions; energy storage (supercapacitors).
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Efficient sensing techniques for smart city applicationsThe city of the 21st century demands a set of digital services that provide citizens with improved access to resources such as transport, education, health care, energy, safety, and the environment. Giving intelligence to these services means having an extensive network of sensors and the management of information supported by the Internet of things (IoT). Wireless sensor networks present two major challenges: efficient communication and energy autonomy. Event-based sensing techniques help to optimize both by analyzing the information registered in the sensor and making it available to the network only when necessary. In the GEINTRA group, we have experience in event-based sensing techniques and their application to the field of Smart Cities.

Consumer properties, which should be taken into consideration: 1) The unique toughness of the material (the highest rate of all known polymers), namely, Over 160 kJ/m2 2) High abrasion resistance 3) Low friction coefficient (self-lubricating) 4) High resistance to chemically aggressive reagents (media) 5) High creep resistance (geometric stability) Ordinary way - This type of process is quite expensive. Production of PE125, in compounding with bimodal PE100, from 8 to 45% of supermolecular polyethylene is injected, reaching dispersion by multiple compounding (4 stages) in an extruder cascade (XXXXX technology). GRAFTALEN™ MP-UHHD (alloy) is a MELT-PROCESSABLE concentrate of UHMWPE on an HDPE matrix. As HDPE, you can choose the most affordable HDPE (pipe) grade. To obtain polyethylene according to the standards PE125 (with a minimum strength indicator MRS> 13.8-14 MPa, in comparison PE100 has MRS only 10 MPa), a significant improvement in the resistance against hydrostatic pressure is required. For a conventional bimodal HDPE, this indicator is difficult to achieve, since it directly correlates with the impact strength/density indicators and with simple extrapolation, it turns out that the required indicator for PE125 simply does not reach the bimodal HDPE matrix. Another problem - the difficulty in maintaining the geometric stability of the pipe (the thickness at the top of the pipe is often less than at the bottom) due to the sagging effect (the phenomenon of the gravitational flow of a polymer melt). This phenomenon is more pronounced for thick-walled pipes. The specific blend of HDPE with UHMWPE allows solving these problems above.

ACDC Cube also uses a novel control method to do the interface between the Alternate Current (AC) distribution networks and a battery pack, or other Direct Current (DC) sources/loads, delivering higher power quality in a compact design. ACDC Cube has lower total volume and weight, increased durability and equivalent reliability when compared with a standard solution such as the voltage source converter plus dual active bridge. Due to its innovative features, ACDC Cube is especially suitable for applications where the size of the power conversion system is critical.

University of Huelva posted this:Power supply system controlled from internet for devices connected to a lanNowadays there are devices that allow the control of devices connected to a network from the own network. The classical method to access them from a different network is the redirection of the corresponding TCP or UDP connections to local networks from the border router. The redirection requires a high level of expertise in communications to be performed. Another strategy that is often used is the creation of VPN (virtual private network). This technique allows the control of access but does not allow connections to be discriminated or the management of power supply. The proposed system allows you to control the person and the moment to access as well as the free access. The modification of these constrains can be performed in the course of an access session. In addition, the system allows the control of power supply of the device you want access to. The interface is very friendly and does not require continuous changes in the configuration of the router. The system has a local database access control and validation can be delegated to other servers using protocol validation like LDAP, IMAP, POP3, etc.
