Introduction to Basic Electrical Theory: Circuit Theory
Electric circuit theory is one of the most vital aspects of electrical engineering. Understanding how components work individually and collectively is the basis for designing, manufacturing, and troubleshooting all kinds of electronic devices and systems. This article will cover the basic circuit components, laws, and parameters in electrical engineering.
STMicroelectronics to Supply Silicon-Carbide Power Electronics to Renault for High Speed Battery Charging in EVs
STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader, has announced it will supply these electronics to Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi to enable high-speed charging in the next generation of electric vehicles.
UK Organizations Receive Funding for Improving Energy Efficiency
Faraday, the independent institute, is allocating £55 million to projects in 4 focus areas, each set on improving EV battery technology while slashing harmful emissions. Resulting research also has the potential to positively impact other industries.
Intel Reveals Spring Crest and Spring Hill AI Accelerator Chips
At this year’s Hot Chips symposium, held between the 18th and 20th of August, Intel revealed its first entries into the emergent market of AI accelerators—the Intel Nervana NNP-T ‘Spring Crest’ and NNP-I ‘Spring Hill’ chips. With the technology, Intel is aiming to compete against the current leaders in the space: Google, Amazon, and Nvidia, as well as newcomers like Qualcomm and Huawei.
World’s First Fully Superconducting Hybrid-Electric Motor Prepares for Testing in Large Civil Aircraft
Air traffic is increasing by five percent each year, driving fossil fuel consumption and carbon emissions higher than ever before. While there is a plan to create fully electric aircraft, hybrid propulsion is desperately needed.
The Anticipated Concerns of a Renewables-Fuelled Power Grid in the UK
In a bid to lower energy costs, meet growing demand with sustainable power, and reduce toxic emissions, the UK is turning to renewables to replace its existing power systems now more than ever. From a technical perspective, however, the path to implementation remains lined with challenges...
The Major Differences in Electrical Standards Between the U.S. and Europe
Working on an electrical engineering project for a country other than the one you were educated in is going to be a major challenge—especially when you consider that almost every country in Europe has its own version of electrical standards and codes.
STMicroelectronics’ X-NUCLEO-IKS01A3 MEMS and Environmental Sensor Evaluation Board
STMicroelectronics’ X-NUCLEO-IKS01A3 micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) and environmental sensor evaluation board is a miniature micro-mechatronic device designed for a broad range of sensor applications, as well as for prototyping and product evaluation.
Siemens’ PAVE360 Platform for Advanced Testing of Autonomous Vehicles
Siemens' PAVE360 program is designed to speed up the development and evaluation of autonomous vehicles. This new platform allows developers to test autonomous vehicle systems and other electronic components in an entirely virtual environment.
Britain’s First Hydrogen-powered Train Set to be Tested on Mainline Railways
BCRRE, Birmingham University's Centre for Railway Research and Education, in partnership with Porterbrook, announced last week that the UK's very first hydrogen train will soon be tested on the railway following a successful proof of concept.
