Improvements in power transformers will address the needs of the smart grid. Benefits include enhanced energy security, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, improved urban air quality, and greater grid utilization.
Accurate modeling of power electronic converters, i.e., obtaining control to output transfer function, must include series resistance of capacitors and inductors. A simple method allows measurement of a capacitor’s Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR).
Whether you need TVS diodes or battery charger ICs, Power Electronics has you covered. Here are some of the latest products to optimize your systems and devices.
This system determines the impedance of batteries in just a few seconds, while the batteries are charging or discharging in their normal operating modes.
Liquids, molten metal elements, salt water, and chemicals are being studied as sources for new batteries.
The U.S. Navy’s new Electromagnetic Launch System will use a linear induction motor and power electronic systems to propel a carriage along a track to launch the aircraft from a carrier.
Large-scale adoption of wearable devices will depend on availability of two important technologies: improved batteries and higher density transistor circuits. These two technologies have been made possible by semiconductor lithography.
