Critical control systems feed the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and require uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) to prevent momentary power interruptions that could cause an industrial PC or other industrial controller to crash. Here’s how to choose an industrial UPS.
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.
Researchers at Texas A&M University have delineated guidelines for setting up successful industrial networks by using patterns found in nature's food chains, which can facilitate economic growth, lower emissions and reduce waste.
Webcast teaches power system harmonics and best practices for harmonics mitigation and their relationship to IEEE 519, which guides the design of power systems with non-linear loads. The 2014 revision of IEEE 519 clarified language subject to interpretation and misinterpretation.
A multidisciplinary team of researchers from Texas A&M University has made a breakthrough that could lead to battery production moving away from cobalt with lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries.
Rice University researchers adapted its laser-induced graphene technique to make high-resolution, micron-scale patterns, which could benefit on-chip microsupercapacitors, functional nanocomposites and microfluidic arrays.
Rice University and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, researchers introduced are using machine learning predict the evolution of microstructures in materials, which could change how items like batteries and other structures are made.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) created a cybersecurity guidance report for marine renewable energy (MRE) devices to help improve MRE’s resiliency as a reliable source of renewable energy.
Turning 5G networks into a wireless power grid for Internet of Things (IoT) devices that need batteries to operate could eliminate them altogether down the road.
