SED3: The Rectifier Circuit

This is a sub-section of my posts describing the Sustainable Energy Design 3 course group project to Design and Build a Micro Wind Turbine - for more information see here The Design For maximum efficiency we are using a full wave rectifier. The two most common options for this are diode bridge rectifiers or transformer … Continue reading SED3: The Rectifier Circuit

SED3: The Generator Manufacturing

This is a sub-section of my posts describing the Sustainable Energy Design 3 course group project to Design and Build a Micro Wind Turbine - for more information see here Building the Rotor So the theoretical design had pretty much outlined the magnet specification that we needed and so we had simply ordered that. The … Continue reading SED3: The Generator Manufacturing

SED3: The Generator Theory

This is a sub-section of my posts describing the Sustainable Energy Design 3 course group project to Design and Build a Micro Wind Turbine - for more information see here Identifying a methodology to design the generator was difficult. Our only restricting variables of power left a lot of variation, and the scale of wind … Continue reading SED3: The Generator Theory

The SED3 Project – Designing and Building a Micro Wind Turbine

Sustainable Energy Design 3 (SED3) was one of the newer but compulsory courses on my degree last year and as I am currently beginning my new dissertation project this in the one year anniversary on possibly the most amazing group project I will ever have worked on, I thought I would actually get around to … Continue reading The SED3 Project – Designing and Building a Micro Wind Turbine

Science, Engineering and Maths Themed Playlists

So I created several Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) themed playlists on Spotify following on from the (relative) success of the materials and elements playlists and of course, in the process I went looking for others around the internet have found a few that other people have made... Here I present my findings: My … Continue reading Science, Engineering and Maths Themed Playlists

PolyAnno: Transcription

This is part of my series of posts about the PolyAnno project - more here Getting Content So when I started the project I definitely thought the most difficult of the annotations to handle would be the translations and so my immediate focus regarding with the transcriptions was more to just get them as quickly … Continue reading PolyAnno: Transcription

Introducing… Superhydrophobic Whisk Design

So every week the Engineering Teaching Office at my university email us all with a newsletter which a few weeks contained, amongst other things, a link to the Electrolux Ideas Lab competition. Intrigued of course I gave it a look, and saw the challenge to be a relatively simple one - how to get more … Continue reading Introducing… Superhydrophobic Whisk Design
