Master Student Internship in Realisation of a characterization bench and optimization rules for an Energy harvester (M/F)

Reference : MRT-2018-Intern-006

Type: Intern
Contract type: Internship
Duration: 6 months
Place: Belvaux

Context

 

Energy harvesting is the conversion of unused kinetic energy (mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic, thermic or electromagnetic) in the surrounding environment into small amount of exploitable electrical energy. This technology, as a new power source for small electronic systems, is attracting more attention in the recent years. It is a promising energy source for self-sustained electronic devices with wireless communications.

 

Description

 

We currently running a project which we’re looking at the realization of new nanotechnology based generators. The mechanisms by which the energy is collected are based on effects such as piezoelectricity, photoelectricity, thermoelectricity, electromagnetism and triboelectricity. Thus, for the sake of innovative solution that offers an optimal performance, it is vital to characterize properly this new devices. The realisation tasks will make use of instrumentation, data acquisition software, data treatments and mechanical parts design. These assembly will serve to the realization of an innovative prototype. The several outputs of the energy harvester prototype will deserve very specific data treatment with the implementation of test matrices and correlation algorithms to obtain optimization rules.

 


Profile

 

Education

  • Preparing a last year Engineer or Master II degree in Engineering School or University on Instrumentation/Mechanics or a relevant subject area with good marks at merit level
