At the moment, Icpe it’s part of 9 projects in process of implementation:
- AMFLY – Advanced Manufacturing of a Flywheel for a High Performance Reaction Wheel
The main technical objective of this project is to design, manufacture (by additive manufacturing) and to validate by tests a new flywheel concept which will be used in a reaction wheel (RW) suitable for small Science and Earth observation missions.
The project runs from 03.02.2020 to 30.01.2021

- NRW – New Reaction Wheel using up-to-date Technologies
The main technical objective of this proposal is to continue the development and to validate the functional performances of a reaction wheel (RW) that will take maximum benefit of new technologies. The RW proposed a new competitive design with enhanced performances, such as: high pointing stability (improved torque stability, low micro-vibration, zero cogging torque), high reaction torque density, increased reliability and lifetime (high number of zero speed crossing).
The project runs from 01.01.2020 to 30.07.2021

- PIEZO – Knowledge transfer in order to achieve a rotating positioning system with piezoelectric motor
The main objective of this research project is to develop a new type of rotary positioning system with piezoelectric motor to be characterized by high positioning accuracy, high torque density, compact dimensions, low weight and high efficiency. This new type of positioning system is intended to be used in applications such as: micro-robots, industrial robots, positioning systems, focusing systems, zoom and optical stabilization, medical systems, high performance industrial automation, etc.
The project runs from November 2018 to September 2021

- SMART Q – Range of prototypes for automatic capacitive compensators designed to improve power factor and load balancing in low voltage electrical networks
The purpose of the project is to increase the technology readiness level from TRL4 to TRL6 for an innovative load balancing solution in three-phase (four-conductor), low-voltage distribution networks by using an automatically unbalanced capacitive compensator. It allows the simultaneous performance of the two functions: improving the power factor and balancing the load in that section of the network in which it is installed.
The project runs from 18.05.2020 to 10.05.2022

- SMARTHC – Self-regulating temperature heating cable for home heating and preventing ice formation on building’s adjacent surfaces
The aim of the project is to obtain and to demonstrate the functionality of an innovative conductive composite material having a positive temperature coefficient (PTC) effect, recently developed as an optimized experimental model within the ICPE-CA and the exploitation of the results obtained so far by developing a model with direct practical applicability, with the prospect of being introduced into manufacture, namely a heating cable with self-regulating temperature properties.
The project runs from 26.10.2020 to 26.08.2022

- PVADIPC – Cloud-based analysis and diagnosis platform for PV prosumers
The project proposes a cost-effective solution designed for small on grid PV systems, where the relevant onsite data are collected, sent to a dedicated cloud platform to be processed, analyzed and diagnosed. The equipment will provide an easy onsite mounting, directly on the prosumer’s installed PV system, without technical assistance.
The project runs from November 9, 2020 to November 9, 2022
