11 UGE Wind Turbines Power a Sustainable University in Texas

11 vertical axis wind turbines by Urban Green Energy - eight UGE-4Ks and three of the newly released UGE-9Ms - were installed in Corpus Christi. The project marked the first installation of the UGE-9M, UGE's biggest and most powerful turbine.

"A number of our faculty members have expressed great interest in this Project and the learning opportunities that it presents, for example, Dr. Karayaka, an advisor on the project, is in charge of teaching an interdisciplinary Energy Conversion course. Through the use of these wind turbines and their data acquisition and diagnostics systems, the key technical concepts in regards to the renewable energies and especially wind energy conversion can be taught to these students." - 3eWerks

The turbines are manufactured at UGE's state-of-the-art factory. The turbines are quieter than a refrigerator and are an aesthetically pleasing addition to any location. All of the turbines are mounted on galvanized steel, hurricane-rated stationary towers, a must considering the campus' location on the Gulf Coast.

Perfect for large-scale commercial applications, the UGE-9M and UGE-4K make an impressive environmental statement while offsetting massive energy costs.

Operation of a home standby generator system & automatic transfer switch - by Cummins Onan

This video gives a general overview of working and automatic operation of an emergency power backup generator and transfer switch by Cummins Onan.

An average home may use more than a hundred electrical appliances and devices to provide convenience, comfort and security. A residential generator has major advantages over a portable gen set- automatic start, permanent fixture, more power, cleaner fuel (natural gas or propane), low running costs and all-weather operation. Standby power systems start automatically with seconds after a home's electricity goes out and ensure a continuous electrical supply.

A Transfer Switch immediately senses when power is interrupted and transfers power generation to generator. It also senses when power is restored and transfers the load back to the utility source and signals the generator to shut down. The power generator is installed outdoors and linked directly to home's permanent fuel supply. The Service Entrance Breaker provides protection to your transfer switch, internal breakers and circuits and generator due to electrical strikes and power surges.

4th of July 2013 - Washington to Obama

Presidents of the United States morphed in sequence from George Washington to (President Elect) Barack Obama. Pictures of the Presidents were found by library and internet search. Images were editted in Photoshop Elements to make them all the same size. The faces were morphed from one to the next using FantaMorph. The images were put into Vegas Pro and faded from one to the next and the face morph overlaid and? "cookie cuttered" out so that the backgrounds faded and the faces morphed simultaneously. The music is 'Hooked on America' performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Leviton AFCI

Leviton's new SmartlockPro Outlet Branch Circuit (OBC) AFCI Receptacle offers added protection from potentially hazardous arc-faults resulting from damage in branch circuit wiring as well as extensions to branches such as appliances and cord sets. By detecting hazardous arc-faults and responding by interrupting power, the SmartlockPro OBC AFCI Receptacle helps reduce the likelihood of the home's electrical system being an ignition source of a fire.

Leviton OBC AFCI Receptacles are designed to recognize many types of hazardous arc-faults. Often unseen, arc-faults can occur anywhere in the home's electrical system including within walls, at loose electrical connections or within electrical cords accidently damaged by impinging furniture.

AFCI's are now required by the National Electrical Code® in many areas of the home including bedrooms, family rooms, dining rooms, living rooms, sunrooms, closets, hallways and similar rooms or areas.
