Smart buildings – protagonists of the smart grid

  The smart grid is the future of our power supply. Smart grids need smart buildings. Equipped with modern building automation, these buildings can be used as a counterbalance in the complex interplay between power generation and energy demand. The growing importance of user-generated energy and the different ways in which energy can be stored […]

MOSFET power losses and how they affect power-supply efficiency

  Power-supply efficiency is a critical criterion for today’s cloud-infrastructure hardware. The efficiency of the chosen power solutions relates to system power loss and the thermal performance of integrated circuits (ICs), printed circuit boards (PCBs), and other components, which determine the power-usage effectiveness of a data centre.

Energy data saves money from the building to the machine

  Scalable energy data management systems integrated into PC-based control equipment cover everything from the building to the machine and even each individual motor. The only way to uncover all potential energy savings is by taking a comprehensive view of the entire business – the administrative level with its offices, conference rooms, and cafeterias; the […]
