The Powerpack units allow trains cutbacks on energy consumption and can be used as a backup power generator if an outage occurs. (Image Credit: Tesla)   Tesla's latest installation of their Powerpack units in Osaka, Japan invites backup power to trains in the region. Installation included 42 Powerpack units that will help to reduce peak energy demands on the grid. If an outage were to occur, trains and passengers would still be able to travel to the nearest station due to the functionality ...
Researchers from Stanford University have figured out a way to create hydrogen fuel by using solar power, electrodes and saltwater from the San Francisco Bay. As reported on March 18th in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, separating hydrogen and oxygen gas from seawater with the use of electricity is a new and improved method. Current methods require the use of highly-purified water which is expensive to produce and is a valuable resource.   The device can generate hydrog ...
24M, an innovative battery company has announced the development and deliverance of commercially viable, high energy density lithium-ion battery cells. Using its SemiSolid design in its facility, the company managed to reach energy densities that exceed 250-watt-hours per kilogram - which is the highest amount for EV applications. The advanced 24M battery has significant improvements that can beat out the current technology. (Image Credit: 24M) Actual cell chemistry in the battery cell or ...
DeepMind trains the AI system on past weather forecast and histories. (Photo via pixabay)   Wind power is a popular option when it comes to clean, renewable energy. But it’s also finicky since wind is often unpredictable making it difficult to use for power grids. Google believes they may have solved that problem by using artificial intelligence. The company announced they have trained an AI system how to predict the energy output of Google’s wind farms by using DeepMind.  ...
I'm reviewing a Gallium Nitrate step-down converter for Point of Load (PoL) high power conversion. In this post, I'm checking the sub-circuit that can inject an 8 A load pulse into the converter output. The injected load is steep and allows you to evaluate the response of the design to fast current demand rise and fall. For an explanation of the main DC converter, check the links at the end of this post.   The converter is designed to deliver high current, up to 50 A, at point of load. ...
