Aalto EL-Zon -päivä

Kaikille avoimessa Electric driven zonal hydraulics (EL-Zon) -tutkimushankkeen loppuseminaarissa kerrotaan, miten työkoneiden energiatehokkuutta voi parantaa 200 % ja energiankulutusta 50 %.

Kaikille avoimessa Electric driven zonal hydraulics (EL-Zon) -tutkimushankkeen loppuseminaarissa kerrotaan, miten työkoneiden energiatehokkuutta voidaan parantaa 200 % ja energiankulutusta 50 %. Tapahtuman on ilmainen, mutta rekisteröityminen suotavaa.

Seminaarin kieli on englanti:

During the EL-Zon project a concept was developed for zonal (or decentralized) hydraulics for mobile working machines and stationary (process) machinery. This idea was first introduced in the aircraft industry. In a fully zonal system, the hydraulic pumps are removed from the engine and replaced within hydraulic power-packs distributed throughout the machine. In this "more electric" architecture, multiple hydraulic power sources are utilized in each "working" zone in order to achieve energy savings and work in power-on-demand approach. This three year long project was funded by Business Finland (former Tekes). 

The event is organised in cooperation with FIMA, Forum for Intelligent Machines ry.

Company and research exhibition

We welcome demos/posters/slides on electrification or automatization of off-road vehicles also outside of the EL-Zon project. If you would like to present your company, your products/demos or research results during the exhibition hours (11-13 and 14.25-15.30) kindly indicate that in the registration form and/or contact D.Sc. (Tech.) Olof Calonous for details.
