Using developments in power electronic devices and intelligent controls, scientists are creating new, compact hydraulic systems for applications in off-road vehicles commonly used in construction and agriculture. These new motors will improve efficiency and affordability, ultimately providing better options for society’s transportation needs.
Researchers are developing new materials to enable safer and cleaner nuclear energy production. By leveraging the latest technology in 3D printing and machine learning, scientists can rapidly create, identify and test new materials faster than ever before. And, this work holds promising advances for solar power and thermal storage capabilities.
New research allows scientists at UW-Madison to use recycled, affordable materials to convert footsteps to usable energy. This new technology replaces costly nonrenewable materials commonly used in existing energy harvesting technology, promising economic and environmental savings for future energy production and storage.
M-WERC provides a new framework for public-private partnerships that strives to connect faculty with industry partners for collaborative, innovative research in three areas: advanced manufacturing and material sciences, extreme power conversion, and systems intelligence. By engaging with groups across the midwest, M-WERC aims to foster industrial collaboration and quickly transition technology innovation into economic growth and job creation.
