APP72: MEMS REPS: Assembly of a MEMS Compressed Air Expander Unit

Project ID APP72

Abstract The objective of this research is to demonstrate power generation at the micro-scale using a compressed air expander. The setup includes a rotor with embedded magnetic poles, spinning inside housing with an integrated functional electricity generator. The means for actuation of the system will be using compressed air as the driving force. The ultimate goal of the demonstration task is to complete and deliver working units to Textron Systems and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Proper assembly techniques are being developed to integrate all the parts that make up a functional compressed air engine.
