high frequency converter system for acoustic separation of particles

A prototype designed to test the idea that sound waves can be used to extract solid particles from flowing water.

This concept can be applied to treating waste water, or in developing nations as the first step towards water filtration without the need for traditional material filters. The prototype showed promising results under laboratory conditions.

1kW inverter system for distributed generation systems

Australia's winning entry for the IEEE International Future Energy Challenge 2005.

A new trend in electric power generation is distributed generation. The concept involves the electricity "consumer" generating electricity for their own needs, and to send their surplus electrical power back into the power grid. A distributed generation system can therefore meet local peak loads, reduce transmission losses, and displace the need to build additional distribution lines.
