A team of engineers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) have found using aqueous electrolytes instead of the typical organic electrolytes for a lithium-ion battery doesn't reduce power or overall performance.
Scientists at Rice University’s Brown School of Engineering have discovered that placing specific defects could improve how lithium ions travel in batteries.
Prevention through design (PtD) can help manufacturers keep workers safe from electrical hazards, which remains one of the most common dangers they face daily. Do you use the five-point hierarchy of risk?
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announces a $3.6 million investment in high-performance computing to help address key challenges in U.S. manufacturing, material, and mobility development.
Cornell University researchers have found a way to build a zinc-anode battery that not has a high energy density, is cheap, robust, and stable, and has a life cycle that can be prolonged.
Stanford University researchers have has built an integrated circuit to control the flow of light through a diamond chip, which could help create quantum processors that are faster than the fastest electronic computers today.
Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are studying patterns of activity across the electric grid by creating a tool to monitor grid stability and notify control operators of potential problems.
Reliable energy efficiency policies are being given a new lease on life by the introduction of better technology solutions.
The October issue of AppliedAutomation focuses on workforce development through universities and colleges and battery safety.
While much media attention has been focused on extending battery operating life through the use of low-power chipsets and communication protocols, the potential energy savings gained from all of these schemes fails to compare with the energy lost to annual self-discharge.
