Thermal design of electric wheel integrated with hybrid battery pack

This project will integrate normal temperature battery (NTB) that is cheap but only can discharge above-20?, and low temperature battery (LTB) that is expensive but can work at -40? into an insulated housing with a smart hybrid battery management system. And a heat pipe with design trigger temperature will be integrated to the housing to prevent overheating of NTB, which will ensure the hybrid battery can work properly in both hot and cold environment.

Analysis and Design of Fast Charging System with Flywheel Energy Storage Platform

This project is aiming at the design and analysis of high-performance fast charging system (FCS) to decrease charging time and reduce the high demand effect in the power grid. Besides, the target fast charging system will support transportation electrification infrastructures, maximize customer satisfaction, reduced operational costs and CO2 emissions. The analysis of the FCS system will provide resilient features to ensure minimum operation interruptions. Also, the system maximizes the charging time by protecting battery life.

Radio-frequency Thermal Plasma Assisted Solid Waste Conversion to Energy using Thermochemical Process Technology

The field of plastic waste management is essential for sustainable society that utilizes plastic waste for energy production. Land filing and incineration of plastic waste has large environmental impacts due to GHG emissions. Thus, pyrolysis is considered a low environmental impact process with high value end products. RF thermal plasma technology will help reduce operating cost, cleaner thermal source, shorten reaction time and provide high quality hydrocarbon gasoline and diesel.

Robots gain empathy skills thanks to Ontario Tech team and international intern

Why is this helpful?

If, for example, a panicked person shouts for help, Zenbo may suggest calling 9-1-1 because it understands the underlying need for emergency assistance. This sort of empathic response could make robots an important companion in care homes, hospitals, and at home.

Design of Thermal System for Electric Wheels

A new cooling system will be designed for electric wheel system which is being developed on partner site to commercial vehicle. The electric wheel system can increase the dynamic performance, flexibility of operation and efficient of electric vehicle.

Detailed Analysis of the forces acting on a high-speed full-scale elevator

The industry partner of this project has an elevator modernization project that includes increasing the current speeds of their elevators by more than 30%. However, increase in speed is usually associated with increase in aerodynamic and lateral forces on the elevator cars, which can negatively affect ride quality and noise levels. The objective of this study is to examine the forces involved, and determine if the speed increases are within the Elevator Modernization Specification provided by industry experts.

Implementation and Evaluation of an Integrated Chiropractic Service for Musculoskeletal Conditions into the Canadian Forces Health Service - Year 2

Low back pain is a leading cause of disability worldwide. The Canadian Armed Forces (CF) has a greater incidence of LBP than the general population. LBP is responsible for a large proportion of medical releases in the CF with many cases resulting in lifelong pain and disability. Improved early access to evidence-based care could help prevent chronicity and recurrences, and reduce health care costs. The purpose of this project is to implement and evaluate a new inter-disciplinary, patient-centred health care service that includes chiropractic services for the management of LBP in the CF.

Molten Salt Reactor Dynamics Analysis Phase 1

This project seeks to understand how a next-generation nuclear reactor, a molten salt reactor, behaves under various conditions. Particular attention is paid to aspects of the reactor’s performance that could have an impact on its safe operation. This research focuses on how the various properties of the reactor evolve in time after a change to the reactor’s operating configuration is made. The analysis is done using state-of-the-art computer codes and a multi-physics approach that model both the nuclear and thermal behaviour of the reactor.
