The process of converting AC to DC to run electronic devices involves inefficiency that is multiplied by the millions of devices that require them. What if this process could be made much more efficient? That’s the promise that new materials used in power conversion may offer.
How do Lithium Titanate batteries work and are they really superior to conventional Lithium-ion batteries? Are they going to substitute for their counterparts in the future market?
Understanding the roles of power regulators, inverters, and converters is important for completing a solar power system in such a way that all components deliver optimal results. Find out how these components work and the features one should look for when contemplating a purchase.
The Smith chart, also known as a polar impedance plot, was invented by Philip Smith in 1939 to plot the characteristics of microwave components such as reflection coefficient, impedance, and admittance. With the help of a Smith chart, complex mathematical equations can be simplified.
A new type of pulsed laser has been recently developed- the dark laser. The technology is available with the aid of quantum dot diode lasers and has a great potential in the fields of telecommunications and fiber data transmission applications.
The Iranshahr power plant explosion is pretty much all over the news bulletins and discussion forums, but it seems that nobody knows the exact cause of the explosion. So let’s try to take a better look at what really happened, where things went wrong, and what may have caused this disaster.
Microgrids are smaller versions of the national electricity grid running independently. Here you can read about microgrids, why we need them, how they are cost effective, and their constituents. Microgrids too have their own problems, but the future looks very promising.
Large industries and electrical utilities are very concerned about the presence of nonlinear loads in their electrical power systems. This article describes the causes of harmonics and their effects, as well as the means to improve power quality and to protect the equipment.
Surge protectors and surge arresters are both used to protect expensive equipment. However, they have some differences in their technology and application.
High voltage DC power transmission is being increasingly used in place of high voltage AC power transmission, particularly for seabed cables and long lines. This increased use is because of economic and technical benefits specific to DC power transmission.
