A cyclone separator featuring a cyclone with a lateral calcium carbonate inlet at the top and a calcium oxide outlet at the bottom surrounded by an envelope such that flue gas combustion is kept separate from calcination. To this end, the cyclone is surrounded by lining or by a furnace or gasifier to generate a concentrated current of CO2 that is not mixed with flue gases, thus fulfilling a dual purpose.

FOR OPTIMAL RENEWABLE ENERGY SISTEMS, S.L. (FORES)
A device to generate electric disruptions in the grid connected to an electric energy generation system such as a wind turbine or solar power plant so as to test the response of the generators to grid disruptions, with the term ‘disruptions’ referring to voltage gaps, power surges, phase jumps and frequency changes. The device comprises one three-phase transformer or three single-phase transformers with variable outlets connected in series between the collection system and the generator. Said transformer is designed to create power surges, voltage gaps and phase jumps through the commutation of a bypass branch with an impedance with the branch containing the transformer, also having a battery of condensers running in parallel to create power surges with the help of serial impedance and/or resistance. It also has a reduction transformer in parallel connected to a rectifier which in turn is connected to resistors to test the response in the event of frequency variations.

ABB TECHNOLOGY A.G
A coil and electric shielding arrangement for a dry-type transformer includes an electric shielding device arranged at a distance from a winding, at an axial end of the winding perpendicular to a longitudinal axis of the transformer, and parallel to a top surface of a coil that is wound around the axis such that the electric shielding device covers a cross-sectional area of the winding perpendicular to the longitudinal axis. An insulation material attached to the winding and to the electric shielding device establishes a first distance between the winding and the electric shielding device along the longitudinal axis such that the winding is shielded against another electric field. The winding and the electric shielding device are casted in a block which insulates the electric shielding device from the electric field of the winding by establishing a second distance between the winding and the electric shielding device.

The present invention relates to the shielding of clamps of a transformer, and in particular to an electric shielding arrangement for a transformer and a transformer with the arrangement. An electric shielding arrangement for a transformer (101) is provided, with a clamp (102, 130, 132) attached at a yoke (109, 124, 126) and stabilizes the yoke (109, 124, 126) of the transformer (101). The arrangement comprises an electric shielding device (100, 140, 142) arranged at the clamp (102, 130, 132) between the yoke (109, 124, 126) and a winding (103) of the transformer (101) and having a trough- like form. The electric shielding device (100, 140, 142) may have the form of a rounded cover and is adapted for shielding the clamp (102, 130, 132) from an electric field of the winding (103).
