Researchers at Purdue University emerge with an electro-hydraulic machine that regenerates hydrostatic energy into electrical power. The machine is beneficial for energy harvesting as it removes high costs and complexity of communication between hydraulic and electronic components in current technology. The method involves integrating an external gear type hydraulic piece directly with an electrical stator component which produces alternating current, alleviating any previous need for separation of these assemblies. By implementing an optimal power to weight ratio, the system accounts for spatial location of machine parts, which is a unique approach in this field. This process is highly efficient for large-scale power production.
