University of Michigan researchers are leading a project to develop virtual copies of nuclear reactors with digital twins, which could enable smarter maintenance for current reactors and more automation for advanced reactors.
Researchers have developed a method that combines Big Data and machine learning to selectively design gas-filtering polymer membranes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve the next generation of batteries.
Rice University lab detects piezoelectric effects in nanosheets due to defects, which could improve energy harvesting applications.
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.
North Carolina State University researchers engineered a catalyst that can more efficiently convert ethane into ethylene, which is used in a variety of manufacturing processes including plastics and shale gas.
Rice University calculations show double-walled nanotubes could be highly useful for solar panels and other nanoelectronics applications such as photovoltaics.
Voltage sags and interruptions can have a detrimental effect on manufacturing processes. Understanding how and why they happen is crucial.
MIT researchers have invented a way to integrate “breadboards” — flat platforms used for electronics prototyping to quickly test circuit functions and user interactions with products such as smart devices and flexible electronics.
MIT researchers have designed an electrical heat valve, which can vary the thermal conductivity on demand, and could help create controllable insulation and harvest the energy of waste heat.
Researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have created a metal battery that relies on potassium instead of Lithium-ion, which could create more energy efficient batteries for consumers.
