ABB to introduce revolutionary generation technology at Hannover Fair

Microencabulator is already generating excitement, curiosity

In recent years, the proliferation of rooftop solar and the potential for local gas-fired generation driven by the shale gas boom have created a groundswell of enthusiasm and concern alike within industry circles.

Still, despite advancing microgrid technology and declining costs for solar PV, a truly game changing solution for on-site generation in embedded or off-grid applications has remained elusive.

Until now.

At ABB, work has been proceeding on the crudely conceived idea of an instrument that would not only provide inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors, but would also be capable of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters.

Drawing on ABB’s extensive experience in power electronics, micro-SCADA and control technologies, such an instrument is the microencabulator.

Now basically the only new principle involved is that instead of power being generated by the relative motion of conductors and fluxes, it’s produced by the modial interaction of magneto reluctance and capacitive duractance. The original machine had a base plate of pre-famulated amulite surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings ran in a direct line with the panametric fan.

The line-up consisted simply of six hydrocoptic marzul vanes, so fitted to the ambaphascient lunar wainshaft that side fumbling was effectively prevented. The main winding was of the normal lotus-O deltoid type placed in panendurmic semi-bulloid slots of the stator, every seventh conductor being connected by a non-reversible tremmy pipe to the differential girdle spring on the up-end of the grammeters.

Moreover, whenever fluorescent skor motion is required, it may also be employed in conjunction with the drawn reciprocation dingle arm, to reduce sinusoidal depleneration.

The microencabulator has now reached a high level of development, and it’s being successfully used in the operation of Milford trunnions.

ABB plans to unveil a fully operational microencabulator at Hannover Fair (April 7-11) where it will feature as the central focus of the event’s Energy and Environmental Engineering exhibit.
