Technical Aspects in the MUSICA Project
Neodyne has a large role in the design and development of the MUSICA platform. Peter from Neodyne explains deatils about their task of combining all the systems into one.
MUP holds Wind Turbines that are using their blades to capture wind force. They are made of very light and resilient materials and this is why they can produce energy at very low wind speeds. The blades are connected to a generator that converts wind’s kinetic energy to electricity. Further, there is a transformer that converts electricity into a usuable voltage. The sun emits energy in the forms of waves in length from short ultraviolet to long infrared waves. When the sun is shining the waves hit the surface of the solar cells. Some waves pass through the cells and some are reflected back. But a significant portion of waves are absorbed which in turn current flow. Solar cell produces just a couple of wats but combaining hundreds produce signifcant power output. The aquaculture unit is an autnomous fish farm which has an scheduled feeding process and monitoring system that ensures that fish are healthy. Desalination plant will produce fresh portable water using renewable energy. It puts sea water through the water to remove the salt.
