Victoria Tech Community Awards Listing Event Date: December 8, 2022 Victoria, BC Globally, transmission energy losses are approximately 8% of the total power transmitted – equating to over 13,000 TWh. Reducing these losses by even 0.1% with superior insulator technology could result in emission reductions of 4+ million tonnes of CO2e – equivalent to the CO2e emissions from 450 million gallons of gasoline1. Our…

CEA’s Conversation Series: Characterization of Silicone Insulator Surfaces to Understand Resistance

CEA’s Conversation Series: Characterization of Silicone Insulator Surfaces to Understand Resistance

Polymer insulators are gaining attention as attractive alternatives to traditional ceramic or glass designs on account of their prolonged resistance to water ingress, light weight, and greener production footprint. However, comparably less is known about how polymer materials such as silicones react and adapt to environmental conditions including chemical stress from de-icing salts, electrical stress…

An automated image analysis platform for the study of weakly – adhered cells

An automated image analysis platform for the study of weakly – adhered cells

Abstract Details of the design and implementation of an open-source platform for studying the adhesion of cells attached to solid substrata are provided. The hardware is based on a laser-cut flow channel connected to a programmable syringe pump. The software automates all aspects of the flow rate profile, data acquisition and image analysis. An example…

ASAsoft Story 1.0 to 2.0 Ligh+weight Insulator aka Polymer/Composite Insulator.

ASAsoft Story 1.0 to 2.0 Ligh+weight Insulator aka Polymer/Composite Insulator.

ASAsoft Story 1.0 to 2.0 Ligh+weight Insulator aka Composite/Polymer Insulator  Electricity drives our civilisation, which is why there are huge questions as to where it will come from in the future. What is not going to change in the near future is the way that we distribute power. And the nature of that distribution system…
