Experimental study of the operation characteristics of an air-driven free-piston linear expander

In this research, an experimental test rig of a dual-piston air-driven free-piston linear expander (FPLE) is established using the FPE concept. A linear generator is used to convert the mechanical work of the pistons into electricity during the expan...

UK Power systems model for electricity infrastructure resiliency assessments and associated simulation output

This data set consists of a Matlab power systems model, energy supply and demand scenarios, windstorm time-series and fragility curves for transmission towers, together with associated simulation outputs.

Experimental data and theoretical speedup calculations for Odroid XU3 and Dell XPS platforms

Traditional speedup models, such as Amdahl's law, have helped the research community and industry better understand system performance capabilities and application parallelizability. As they mostly target homogeneous hardware platforms or limite...

Network-on-Chip simulation results from ArchOn

The analysis for extra-functional properties like power and performance takes a critical role in the system design workflow. Hardware-software co-simulation is one of the commonly used ways to perform this type of analysis. However, with the modern d...

Urban Observatory Weather and Climate data

Continuous dataset collection since 2014 through Urban Observatory (UO) sensors. The data covers the geographical area of the North East of England centred on Newcastle upon Tyne (for geographical extent and location of sensors see http://uoweb1.nc...

Wind speed series for a location in southwest England

Hourly wind speed gust maxima, January 1 2003-December 31 2012 (inclusive).

Urban Observatory Urban Sciences Building data

Direct measurements and derived information for the Urban Sciences Building, obtained from approximately 2,500 sensors within the building (e.g. room temperature, energy consumed by lifts), and a further 5,000 derivative values (e.g. heating valve po...

Numerical research of the effect of surface biomimetic features on the efficiency of tidal turbine blades

Horizontal-axis axial flow tidal current turbine is regularly used to exploit the kinematic energy in tidal currents. However, the scaling up of tidal current turbine is very difficult. This is because strong tidal current only exists in the underwat...
