Appliances

  • MEMS-Based Fuel Cell

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Background: This invention describes the fuel cell architecture and the means to fabricate this architectore that would likly result in a high performance micro-fuel cell. The use of MEMS-based fabrication techniques for the manufacture of fuel cells offers the promise of increased performance out of a small package. Performance parameters in this context include power density (power per unit cell area) specific energy (energy per unit mass) efficiency (electrochemical and fuel utilization) operating temperature reduction cost and possible integration with control and feedback electronics.

  • Novel Environmentally Safe Coatings for Ceramer Films based on Unsaturated Oil

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Technology Description: This NDSU invention is a ceramer precursor coating composition which can be used to form ceramer coatings having high tensile modulus and tensile strength while exhibiting a relatively moderate strain-at-break value. The coating composition includes an unsaturated oil stock and a sol-gel precursor which includes a mixture of at least two different sol-gel precursor species. The use of two sol-gel precursors has resulted in superior film properties over the use of a single sol-gel precursor.

  • Micro-electromagnetically Actuated Latched Switches

    Type: 
    Product

    Background: University researchers have developed a miniature relay switch with an overall volume of less than 100 mm3 that can handle up to 40 W of DC or 60 Hz line power. This invention also relates to methods of manufacturing these relay devices directly within or on any of the following using standard electronic manufacturing techniques: lead frames substrates microelectronic packages printed circuit boards flex circuits and rigid-flex materials.

  • Home appliance recycling technologies

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Hitachi Group harnesses its accumulated experience and achievements to offer diverse support for the introduction of home appliance recycling technologies: including the development of a business model consultancy on business development technology transfer patent licensing and introductions to partner companies in many countries.

  • Personal Energy Footprint Management System

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    University researchers have developed a system and method to utilize multiple context clocks which are event-driven activities such as user behavior network status and variable electricity rates combining with internal electronic clocks to adjust the duty cycle of an electronic system such as plug-load devices and appliances. The present invention is a method in which electricity usage context information is utilized in an external or internal clock system to govern the duty cycle of a plurality of electronic devices and appliances. The clock is a combination of more than two clock inputs.

  • Organic absorption heat pump system

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Organic absorption heat pump (AHP) system offers highly efficient performance contributing reduction of CO2 which is an universal proposition. Even the climate tends to warmer consumption of electricity should be saved in order to reduce CO2 exhaust. This Appliance may be used for Heating Cooling and Domestic Hot Water Production developed originally for use in individual house. AHP is an Air-Source or Geothermal-Source Heat Pump driven not by electricity but by natural Gas of minimum volume.

  • Improved Electrochemical Double-Layer Capacitor Using Organosilicon Electrolytes

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Background: Although a battery can store significant amounts of energy it cannot deliver it quickly. But a battery can be used to charge a capacitor which then can provide much power all at once. Supercapacitors consist of electrodes collectors a separator that keeps the electrodes out of electrical contact and an electrolyte which allows ions to move freely through the separator. Typically supercapacitors use aqueous electrolytes which can be unstable at high voltages or organic liquid electrolytes like acetonitrile which are highly toxic and flammable.

  • Social Networking System to Reduce Peak Energy Consumption in a Smart Grid

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Background: This social networking platform helps users schedule electrical appliance tasks minimizing variance in power consumption and saving money. Energy consumption in buildings represents approximately 74 percent of the nation’s electricity consumption. During peaks in electricity demand generators are inefficient wasting fuel and increasing expenditures for both electric companies and end-users. Electric companies keep generators on ready to respond to sudden upswings in electricity consumption.
