*Generating electricity using power windows
An Iranian researcher at University of Wollongong in New South Wales, Australia, has come up with a new idea for the generation of electricity from solar power.
According to the concept of “power windows,” Professor Farzad Safaei has designed a wind turbine which will have the least detrimental effect on the environment around it. Instead of having a set of big blades which would rotate in the direction that wind blows, the new wind turbine is made of small blades which revolve slowly in the direction of wind.
Another advantage of these power windows is that, if more electricity is needed, more panels can be added to them in order to contain a higher amount of wind energy.
He has more than 15 years of experience in conducting and managing advanced research in the field of data communications and networks. Currently, he is the Professor of Telecommunications Engineering and Director of Centre for Emerging Networks and Applications at the University of Wollongong. Professor Safaei is also the Program Manager of Smart Networks and Intelligent Environment program at the Smart Internet Technology Cooperative Research Centre. Before joining the University of Wollongong, he was the Manager of Internetworking Architecture and Services Section in Telstra Research Laboratories. His primary research interest is to design large-scale telecommunication networks that can adapt autonomously to dynamic characteristics of applications, cost, customer demand, or any other critical influence from outside.
