Wood Stoves for Cutting Electricity Costs and Preventing Unnecessary Expansions of the Electricity Grid
My goal in this project is to investigate wood-burning stoves with the aim of reducing electricity expenses and averting unnecessary expansion of the electricity grid.
Seven student teams from six countries and three continents participated. The competition was organized in the Norwegian university city Trondheim and will be held every year from now on.
In the world of academia and technology, innovation stands as the driving force that propels us forward into the future. It is the foundation upon which progress is built, and at the Faculty of Engineering, we are nurturing and celebrating the innovative spirit of our students and researchers.
Marcos Fernandez’s research brings us closer to that day when physical tests become history. His efforts also pave the way for safer cars, planes, ships, and other structures.
The small satellite HYPSO-1, built by more than 80 students and researchers at the Department of Engineering Cybernetics and the Department of Electronic Systems – and other departments, has participated in several research missions already.
Rannveig Marie Færgestad wrote her MSc thesis at SFI CASA in spring 2021. The title was «Modeling and simulation of hypervelocity impact against debris shields for spacecraft protection». Back then, she called it her dream thesis. Obviously, the space industry had a taste for it, too.
This week NTNU will launch the first research satellite made by a Norwegian university. The small satellite «HYPSO-1» will take off with a Spacex Falcon-9 rocket from Kennedy Space Center, Florida. The mission: to scan ocean and lakes from 500 km above the earth.
