Project : Renewable Energy Engineering and Design

We supported a large energy company by providing consultants to support the construction, outages, material evaluation, modeling, route of transmission, and permits to improve the transmission power for wind energy. The growth of renewable energy created a need to increase the transmission line to bring wind energy into the load centers. During this multi-year project, the consultants worked closely in a team environment to build a design that improved power flow to the load centers. The project called for high voltage transmission and substation line experience. The results of the project increased the use of wind energy and decreased the dependence on fossil fuels.

Project : Airflow Platform Test System

An industrial manufacturer required a software solution to operate the Airflow Platform Test System for characterization and calibration of airflow sensors. The software created allowed the engineering and evaluation labs to gather data for the characterization of ASIC based airflow sensors, and also calibrate airflow sensors using the signal conditioning ASIC for developmental and low volume production purposes. Both of these functions are custom configurable, in terms of airflow, temperature and voltage, by the user.
