Energy Harvesting Technology
This invention involves a new energy harvesting technology that uses a simple, position-dependent passive switch to harvest the peak electric potential energy generated in the electrostatic induction process as a droplet of liquid moves over different materials. This new technology is perfectly suited to scavenge low-level, otherwise wasted, ambien...

Improved Voltage Regulators
In the past decade, the landscape of energy production has had to shift to accommodate renewables which, unlike fossil fuels, are subject to frequent fluctuations; potentially destabilizing grid operators. With the continued demand for solar PV system installation, there is a pressing need for utilities to regulate the voltages at the low voltage d...
