Chapter
The development of the Fresnel artisanal system or Fresnel linear collector aims to take advantage of solar radiation and local materials, to generate a low-cost alternative for the production of hot water or steam, with scope for integration to desalination systems that require feed water in a range of 60 ℃ to 95 ℃. For the prototype development,...
Chapter
In this document, an analysis was made of the energy potential of the flow of water in pipes, of an innovative prototype for a building certified with the standard Passivhaus (PH). Passive interventions are based on insulation through the housing envelope and implementing technologies according to criteria and principles of the standard, thus incre...
Chapter
The research evaluates the performance and effectiveness of a solar-biomass hybrid prototype for drying cocoa beans, which takes advantage of solar energy in the application area and the calorific value of the dried cocoa pod shell, performing a continuous drying in 36 h, reducing the time by 70% compared to traditional drying. The experimental tes...

... The use of a nonlinear harvester and a clamped-clamped beam could be an excellent approach for scavenging energy from vibration [3]. Piezoelectric materials can be used to convert mechanical vibrational energy into alternating current, which can then be converted to direct current for wireless applications or battery charging [4]. Piezoelectric materials are important due to their durability, dependability, and inexpensive cost. ...
... Desalination systems are a viable alternative for the drinking water production process, but their high operating cost makes it difficult to implement them in isolated areas with low economic power [19] [20]. This is why solar photovoltaic [21] and thermo solar [22] [23], have been integrated into these processes but continue to be costly. Thus, various small-scale solutions have been developed such as: desalination by conventional and solar distillation [24] [25], pumped supply by photovoltaic panels [26] [27], condensation systems assisted by Solar electric energy[28], among others, the latter, focuses on the use of a conventional cooling system under modifications to produce fresh water [29] [30]. ...
... Eventual water pumping solutions are limited by electrical energy, either by high consumption required to drive the water from the Chicamocha river or by the absence of electrical power networks that allow energy to be transported to the required points. [15] [16]. ...
