  • High Voltage Condition Monitoring

    Transformers play a key role in the transmission and distribution network, getting power from source to end-user, so any fault is critical and needs to be identified before any damage to the transformer or surrounding components leads to power black-out or catastrophic failure.

  • Electric Motor Monitoring System

    The technology relates to the field of monitoring commutator electric motors. Specifically, this relates to detecting high-frequency RF arcing events through a non-contact small screened loop antenna system, using the measured RF signals to provide a means for monitoring, recording and diagnosing a ...

  • Novel Optical Concentrator for BIPV Systems

    Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) solar concentrator systems not only generate electricity, but also allow the transformation of ambient light and the use of cogenerated heat for various fundtions. Commercial advantages of BIPV include substantial reduction in amount of silcon used and reduced...

  • Low Carbon Emissions Cement

    Researchers at the University of Aberdeen have developed a cement with good mechanical properties, reduced energy use and lower emission of greenhouse gases by use of partially calcinated components. Rice husk ash has been used as additive but other pozzolans or latent hydraulic binders are expected...

  • Preparation of Enantiomerically Pure Chiral Amines

    Researchers at the University of St Andrews have developed a synthetic process for the preparation of a class of enantiomerically pure chiral amines. This efficient and economical method gives rise to entities of a varied structural class, which can be used as building blocks in the synthesis of bio...

  • Low Carbon Futures (Overheating Risk Tool)

    The Low Carbon Futures project resulted in the creation of a tool for assessing the future performance of buildings in the UK in the face of an increasingly changing climate. Such changes need to be reflected in building design if those buildings are to function in the medium-long term.

    Expires: Created:
  • Early Warning of Gas Hydrate Formation in Gas Pipelines

    A method for monitoring Hydrate formation and detecting the approximate position of Gas hydrate / Clathrate formation in Oil & Gas transfer pipelines.
