Project Details

Sponsor Company: Regenesis
Description: Project goal: To design test procedures to investigate the relationship between the power captured by Regenesis and the Regenesis system’s effect on an HVAC unit. Regenesis is the concept of generating electrical power from the discharged airflow of a heating, ventilation and air-conditioning, or HVAC, system. The first procedure determines the baseline efficiency of an HVAC with and without the sponsor-provided high-efficiency fan and Regenesis fan blade. The second test restricts different amounts of airflow to find similarities in this simulation and how Regenesis restricts the airflow and affects HVAC pressure. Finally, a test is run to determine the relationship between the placement of the system above the HVAC and the power captured by Regenesis. The tests determine the placement of Regenesis where power is optimized, and if the HVAC is running to factory specifications.
