Efficient Energy Management System with Smart Grid

Efficient Energy Management System with Smart Grid: Efficient Energy Management System  was inspired by Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA). Efficient Energy Management System with Smart Grid  basically controls, monitors loads and power flow. It also provides protection to loads.We usually have some critical and non-critical loads. Critical loads should never be turned off. Non-critical loads ...

Maximize the Energy from Long-Life Batteries

Battery lifetime is a key consideration for the development of the wireless sensor nodes that will populate the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). In many applications, the sensor nodes will need to be installed in locations that are difficult to reach let alone service. The sensor nodes need to be autonomous in terms of energy because it is too costly and difficult to run power lines to them or to have ...

Ru/Al Multilayers Integrate Maximum Energy Density and Ductility for Reactive Materials

Established and already commercialized energetic materials, such as those based on Ni/Al for joining, lack the adequate combination of high energy density and ductile reaction products. To join components, this combination is required for mechanically reliable bonds. In addition to the improvement of existing technologies, expansion into new fields of application can also be anticipated which triggers the s ...

Interfacing with The Energy Detective using pic microcontoller

I recently bought The Energy Detective (TED), a pretty inexpensive and friendly way to keep tabs on your whole house’s electricity usage. It’s a lot like having a more featureful version of your utility company’s power meter, sitting on your kitchen counter. It can estimate your utility bill, and tell you how much electricity and money you’re using in real-time. The resolution is pretty good- 10 watts, 1 se ...

Cypress expands energy-efficient line of nonvolatile RAMs

Cypress Semiconductor is sampling a 4-Mbit ferroelectric RAM (F-RAM), which is one of the industry’s highest density serial F-RAMs, featuring a 40-MHz serial peripheral interface (SPI) and a 2.0-V to 3.6-V operating voltage range. F-RAMs consume 200 times less energy than serial EEPROMs and 3000 times less energy than NOR flash devices. Further, Cypress F-RAMs are able to endure 100 trillion read/write cycl ...

See-through solar concentrator harvests energy from sunlight

A team of Michigan State University (MSU) researchers has created a transparent solar concentrator able to turn any window (or other sheet of glass, such as the screen for a smartphone) into a photovoltaic solar cell. What makes this development different? The panel is truly transparent. A new solar cell recently developed by a team at Michigan State University is completely transparent. Earlier attempts at ...

Gas Cooker & Water Purifier Using Free Energy

I originally wrote this for my final year project in 2005. I won't provide a parts list as certain technology has moved on such as the ease of Arduino for the electronics and solar cells are a lot better and readily available now. Also I was a student at the time and so my budget was extremely limited but even today I am happy with my design. Many parts of the world suffer from lack of clean water to drink ...
