  •  Engineering Students Compete with Next Generation of Energy Efficient Appliances

    Tuesday, May. 22, 2012

    Two teams of Santa Clara University students will compete against universities across the country in the MaxTech and Beyond: Ultra Low Energy Appliance Design Competition Wednesday, May 23. Santa Clara University is the only Bay Area school participating in the Department of Energy contest.

    One team of graduate mechanical engineering students Ying-Heng (Carlo) Peng, Diego Melani, and Miguel Gomez, advised by Professor Hohyun Lee, developed a lighting system that cuts energy use by controlling the angle of window blinds and using LED bulbs.

    Team DryAir, comprised of undergraduate senior mechanical engineering students (Michael) Zach Chong, (Peter) Colin Dess, Tim Hussey, and Liz Papengellin, advised by Professor Tim Hight, created an electric clothes dryer that reuses hot air—a basic concept that could have a lasting impact on the future of energy savings.

    The competition will be held Wednesday at both the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and the Department of Energy Headquarters in Washington, D.C. and will be broadcast live on the web: https://cc.readytalk.com/r/2un7890hudc0

    Blind Team:
    1:00 - 1:15 p.m. Efficient Lighting System via Automated Control of Blind Angle and LED Light Bulbs

    Team DryAir:
    1:15 - 1:30 p.m. Reduction in Energy Use in Electric Clothes Dryers
