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.
Atmos Energy Corp. has experienced growth as an energy provider for the distillery market in Kentucky and Tennessee.
Combined heat & power (CHP) is a reliable source of electricity and power for cannabis owners, which need a constant and reliable source to ensure their plants quickly grow.
Asphalt companies without a readily-available pipeline are turning to LNG and CNG.
Power-to-gas (P2G) technology can help produce renewable natural gas (RNG) without creating greenhouse gas emissions, but there are questions about how to make P2G work, mostly related to system optimization and electric grid integration; projects in the field and university research are working to answer those questions.
Cornell researchers received a $2 million grant to study the combination of inorganic semiconductor nanoparticles and bacterial cells for more efficient bioenergy conversion.
Rice University researchers have found a common greenhouse gas could be repurposed in an efficient and environmentally friendly way with an electrolyzer that uses renewable electricity to produce pure liquid fuels.
The basic configuration of electrical power systems for industrial and commercial applications has altered little for decades, but hybridization could change this in a disruptive and positive way.
A lower self-discharge rate leads to longer operating life for batteries and a lower cost of ownership for remote wireless devices.
