The findings have the potential to boost the photovoltaics and photodetector fields, and could improve the efficiency of solar cells to up to 46%.
MORNSUN has released the PV150-29Bxx converter series for 150 W 250–1500 VDC applications. The series features 4 kVAC isolation with a wide-input 250–1500 VDC voltage range, with efficiencies of up to 84% @ 800 VDC input.
Nova Electric's NGL130W-Series Rugged Pure Sinewave DC-AC/DC Inverters are specifically designed for harsh-environment applications wherever standard utility-like power is needed at 50, 60 or 400 Hz.
Traco Power's THN 15 series high-performance 15 W DC/DC converters are enclosed in a shielded 1″ x 1″ x 0.4″ metal package. The design provides a fully integrated EN 55032 class A filter and no-load power consumption of 96–336 mW.
Traco Power's TEL 10WI series is a range of isolated 10 W converters that come in an ultracompact DIP-16 metal package. The low-power DC/DC converters are designed to provide maximum miniaturisation without sacrificing high efficiency.
ITECH's IT8600 series programmable combined AC/DC electronic load has a power rating of 1800, 3600 and 5400 W; a frequency range of 45–450 Hz; a voltage range of 15 V–260 Vrms and 50 V–420 Vrms; and a current range of 20, 40 and 60 Arms.
Scientists have developed a method to analyse which pairs of materials in next-generation perovskite solar cells will harvest the most energy.
NGK INSULATORS and BASF New Business have entered into a joint development agreement to develop the next generation of sodium‒sulfur batteries.
Scientists have uncovered a root cause of the growth of the needle-like structures that plague lithium batteries, sometimes causing a short circuit, failure or even a fire.
The devices make use of all the potential of active carbon, graphene and polyaniline, a polymer with high capabilities that is already broadly used in textile materials.
The electrode was found to improve the practical energy density of a lithium–sulfur battery to three to five times higher than that of lithium-ion batteries.
Acumentrics' portable Pack-Power device is a small, lightweight, autonomous and flexible UPS system that can be standalone or integrated into a soldier's backpack, making it suitable for defence expeditionary applications.
The Neousys PB-9250J-SA and PB-4600J-SA are standalone supercapacitor-based uninterruptible power backup modules that can protect box PCs against power outages.
