  • Hybrid powertrain for light aircraft

    In this paper, we evaluate the possibility of employing a hybrid powertrain to propel a light aircraft. The work suggests that the incorporation of a hybrid powertrain has little effect on fuel consumption for a light aircraft operating in a condition of straight and level cruise. However, there is a potential decrease in fuel consumption when a light aircraft operates either in climb or when ...

  • Energy harvesting from suspension systems using regenerative force actuators

    In this paper, harvesting vibration energy from suspension is investigated. Theoretical values for the harvested energy are calculated. Experimental evaluation of the energy is performed using vehicle road simulation facilities. An excitation signal in the frequency range of 0.5 Hz to 20 Hz is applied to the vehicle and the harvested power is calculated. Experimental results give a maximum ...

  • New chip captures power from multiple sources

    System developed at MIT could combine power harvested from light, heat and vibrations to run monitoring systems. Written by David L. Chandler, MIT News Office.You can read the original new in MIT NewsResearchers at MIT have taken a significant step toward ...

  • Ships that harvest electrical power from ocean waves

    Electrical power generation from ocean waves is possible from ships that harvests wave energy through daily trips to offshore locations and that return back to port for the delivery of energy to the grid. Energy is stored locally on the vessel during harvesting phase and placed on the grid during periods of high demand (normally mid-day). Unlike conventional wave-power devices, the ships ...

  • Energy harvesting and current state of the technology with application to traffic monitoring

    Wireless systems capable of being truly 'autonomous' present the future of wireless networks and applications. Such systems have an intrinsic advantage over systems dependent on a finite power source. Harvesting energy from a device's environment has been proposed as a solution to the difficulty of providing a 'wireless' power source. The underlying theory and operating principles of ...
