Acquisition and processing of new data sources for improved condition monitoring of mechanical systems
This research is focussed on the development of new ways to perform on-line condition monitoring in mechanical systems.
Development of a high torque density and efficiency axial flux switched reluctance motor for electric vehicle
This research is focussed on the development of a high torque density and efficiency motor, suitable for cost-effective mass production.
The present thesis deals with the assessment of tribocorrosion of HSLA steels used in chains of offshore mooring lines, which have been reported to be profoundly affected by both wear and corrosion during their service life. Additionally, the second part of the thesis is focused on the evaluation of protective coatings employed for the protection of steel components and structures from corrosion.
The present thesis work combines two alternatives of energy input and management on a single architecture. A mini-reactor and an indoor photovoltaic cell as energy harvesters and a double power manager with AC/DC and DC/DC converters controlled by a low power single controller.
This doctoral thesis deals with wear mechanisms, setting protocols to simulate them at laboratory scale and studying the influence of different process parameters, in order to predict the wear of moulds.
