Solving the System-Level Thermal Management Challenges of LEDs

As thermal management continues to be critical to LED performance, thermal simulation is playing an increasingly important role in LED system design. New generation CAD-embedded thermal and fluid simulation software makes it possible for LED systems designers to diagnose thermal problems, evaluate a large number of design alternatives quickly, and iterate rapidly to an optimal solution. Another bonus? Having a deep understanding of the computational aspects of fluid dynamics is no longer a requirement...

Telematics: An Industry Game-Changer

Telematics is the transmission of machine data to a remote consumer. If that remote consumer is an electronic device rather than a human, the process is called machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. The emerging M2M revolution is based on innovations in hardware and software that are converging to form a whole new way of transacting business.

Buyer’s Guide for FEA Software

In selecting a finite element analysis (FEA) software solution, it is crucial that you consider the pre- and postprocessor, which can be critical for the analysis speed and accuracy. FEA analysts rely on the pre- and postprocessor to work with an assortment of data files, provide a variety of ways to idealize the model, support one or more solvers and produce the data and reports that are needed to meet both internal and external requirements. Engineering managers rely on the pre- and postprocessor solution to reduce the risks associated with accuracy while meeting time-critical product development deadlines. Click here to download.

Promoting Virtual Power Plants for Efficient Renewable Energy Production

Researchers from the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) at the University of Southampton have devised a novel method for forming virtual power plants (VPPs) to provide renewable energy production in the UK. Small and distributed energy resources (DERs), such as wind farms and solar panels, have been appearing in greater numbers in the electricity supply network (Grid).

Identifying Effective Carbon Capture Technologies

Approximately 75 percent of electricity used in the U.S. is produced by coal-burning power plants that expel carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Berkeley Lab researchers are searching for porous materials to filter out the CO2 before it reaches the atmosphere, but identifying these materials is easier said than done.
