Danish Cell Controller Project
Danish Cell Controller Project
Spirae LLC
Prior to 1990, most Danish electric power was produced at large, centralized generation plants from which it was transmitted and distributed to commercial, industrial, and residential consumers. Since then, thousands of distributed generators have been added such that the installed generation capacity at the distribution level exceeds the generation capacity at the transmission level. The distributed generation (DG) assets include dispersed combined heat and power (CHP) plants and wind turbines, creating a “carpet” of generation at the low and medium voltage levels of the distribution system (see inset). These distributed resources provide renewable and flexible energy production and support local thermal heating loads but were designed to operate only while grid-connected and could not be used in the case of a major power outage. The high penetration of variable wind generation also created the situation where the transmission system had to balance all the local variability of wind (both real and reactive power).

Smart energy by Mobisol

Mobisol combines solar power generation with innovative technology, mobile communication and affordable microfinancing solutions for customers. The company’s solar home systems comprise elements such as solar cells, power inverters and a battery system. It also offers a range of low power consumption electrical devices adapted to the output that the solar system can produce, such as LED lights, televisions and charging stations for mobile phones.A key aspect of Mobisol’s business model is ensuring that the agreed installments are paid on time. Therefore, the solar home systems needed to be fitted with SIM cards that cannot be removed without destroying the devices. If payments are not made the system can be switched off remotely. Mobisol was looking for a mobile partner that was able to provide SIMs and mobile coverage in the across the east African countries in which it operates.

Indoor Air Quality Monitoring
Indoor Air Quality Monitoring
Air quality monitoring (IAQ) is carried out to assess the extent of pollution, ensure compliance with national legislation, evaluate control options, and provide data for air quality modelling. It is particularly important in chemical plants or other facilities with potentially harmful concentrations of pollutants.CHALLENGES / REQUIREMENTS - A system is needed to sense air quality at static and moving locations (on car body) all over the city and feedback the data to the lab over networkSTAKEHOLDERS - City residents- Meteorological labsKEY OBJECTIVES - To have improved air quality in the city- Save environment- To detect air quality at various locations in the city and detect the reasons for its deteriorationTYPICAL SYSTEM CAPABILITIES - A system can detect air quality at stationary locations, as well as it can also be mounted on car body- It continuously sends data to centralized monitoring system, which can log, analyze and predict the air quality of a particular locationUSAGE VIEWPOINT - Sensors are mounted on stationary as well as on moving car body to detect harmful gases and substances in air all across the city- These sensors send real-time information to the central location- Software analytical tools monitor the real-time data and can find the air quality deteriorating premises in the city as per the density variation and trends in the data logFUNCTIONAL VIEWPOINT - Sensors: Chemical- Network: Wide Area Network (WAN) - Standards: - Augmented Intelligence: Predictive Analytics- Augmented Behavior: Machine-to-machine (M2M) interfaces

Cellular Manufacturing
Cellular Manufacturing
When dissimilar equipment and workstations to produce a family of similar components or subassemblies are arranged close together to save space and time, and simplify process routing and supervision. Workers are typically cross-trained to perform multiple tasks within a manufacturing cell.
Haptic Technology
Haptic Technology
Also referred to as Haptics or “touch feedback,” haptic technology applies tactile sensations to human interactions with machines. The simplest example is the actuator that vibrates a cell phone, but more advanced haptics can detect the pressure applied to a sensor, affecting the response.
CR2032 battery
CR2032 battery
A battery rated at 3.0 volts is commonly used in watches, wireless doorbells, and other small devices. Sometimes referred to as a “button cell” or “lithium coin,” the battery is shaped like a coin with dimensions of 20mm diameter x 3.2mm height (from which the “2032” is derived).
