Supercapacitors may be combined with batteries to add the advantages of high capacity and low internal resistance. Low leakage currents will extend battery life in this application. HY-LINE Power Components now offers a new model optimized specifically for this use case.
Arevon Asset Management (Arevon), a leading renewable energy company, is celebrating the opening of the Saticoy battery energy storage system. One of the largest grid-scale battery energy storage sites in the United States, the zero-emission plant helps reduce grid outages and delivers power during peak demand times without harmful air, water or noise pollution.
STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader, and Metalenz Inc., the pioneer in meta-surface design and commercialization, announced a co-development and license agreement that will see ST develop manufacturing processes for Metalenz’s meta-optics technology for next-gen smartphones, consumer devices, healthcare, and automotive applications.
This article shows how to use the same components—an IC controller and power train—in two very different topologies: a common buck converter and in an inverting buck-boost converter. In detail, a simple and cost-effective solution for designing positive buck and negative buck-boost converters using the same IC is presented.
Experts from industry and academia in the power electronics industry are invited to apply to be a speaker at the PCIM Europe Conference 2022 with a short abstract. The Call for Papers will be open until 15 October 2021. The event will be taking place once again on-site in Nuremberg from 10 – 12 May 2022.
Highly reliable interconnect technologies are increasingly used to achieve much higher reliability or enable the device to operate at elevated temperature. These benefits, however, evolve new challenges for the qualification process.
Israeli startup TriEye, developer of the world's first mass-market Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) image sensor, announced its collaboration with Trimble, a global leader in machine control technology for agriculture and construction. They partners to explore the use of next-generation SWIR-based autonomous vision systems.
GreenCore and Loop Energy announced a partnership to develop and build hydrogen powered EV charging stations. The parties anticipate the first pilot installation to be completed within calendar year of 2021 with more than 1,500 EV charging and hydrogen refueling stations by the end of 2026. This follows both companies' recent announcements of partnerships with BayoTech, a leading provider of modular, scalable, and rapidly deployable hydrogen production systems.
Battery analytics company TWAICE has created a ‘battery model library’ that they say will speed up the creation of validated simulation models for cell aging while also making the licensing of models more flexible.
