Using soft ferrites for interference suppression

  In the field of electromagnetic compatibility several trends point to a growing necessity of EMC engineering. These trends, directed to functional upgrading or reducing cost, inevitably also contribute to an increasing level of electromagnetic interference (EMI) emissions. The article covers general principles of EMC and EMC regulations, material specifications and EMI-suppression product lines. Applications […]

The true cost of storage

  When evaluating whether and what type of storage system they should install, many customers only look at the initial cost of the system – the first cost or cost per kilowatt-hour (kWh). Such thinking fails to account for other factors that impact overall system cost, known as the levelised cost of energy. The levelised […]
