Lithium’s narrow paths limit batteries
Rice University study suggests stress among misaligned particles in typical cathodes limits flow.
Next-generation batteries propelled by sodium ion enhancements
Duke University researchers have developed insights into the atomistic dynamics of emerging solid-state batteries to speed their evolution and move beyond lithium.
Solid-state batteries designed for better performance
University of Illinois researchers have learned how control over the atomic alignment of solid materials can improve the cathode-solid electrolyte interface and stability in solid-state batteries, which can improve their performance and quality.
Improving power quality
Industrial controls that provide built-in robustness to voltage sags already have capabilities installed and don’t require after-the-fact voltage sag mitigation for defense against the effects of voltage sags.
COVID-19 emergency support for safety circuits, VFDs, vision, PLC power quality, SCADA
System integrators can provide emergency support for automation troubleshooting to shorten or prevent downtime, improve quality and save money as manufacturing restarts or continues during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Power conditioning needs to match the power quality environment
Voltage sags depend on the facility. An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) might be needed, but for large-scale issues, a UPS might not be the best option. See five UPS alternatives.
Understanding power quality, improving manufacturing system reliability
Voltage sags and interruptions can have a detrimental effect on manufacturing processes. Understanding how and why they happen is crucial.
Wearable electronics powered by flexible batteries
Stanford University researchers have developed an experimental device designed to provide a comfortable power source for technologies that bends and flexes with the human body.
