Energy Harvesting Lab

Energy Harvesting Laboratory
.
Seeks to design and fabricate sensing devices to measure electric current for smart grid applications. Other areas of research include the use of smart materials in bioengineering applications, and flatness control of Kapton membranes for space antenna membranes. Our $1.5 million collection of lab equipment includes an LMS data acquisition system is the most up to date vibrations measurement unit that used by many cutting edge industries such as Mercedes and aerospace companies.

Research Spotlight

Energy Harvesting Laboratory

EnergyHarvestingRSphoto.pngDemand for wireless sensing units has increased in recent years, particularly for large networks of power transmission lines. Dr. Armaghan Salehian and her Energy Harvesting Laboratory team seek to design and fabricate sensing devices to measure electric current for smart grid applications. These technologies are self-contained and require minimal energy for their operation. This is done through the use of various smart materials to convert ambient vibrations and the magnetic flux of transmission lines into usable power. These sensing and harvesting units are miniature-sized and are thus much smaller than the available technologies used by hydro industries.
