Measuring high currents with small current sensors

Modern current measurement trends in uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and renewable energy systems is towards smaller physical size, higher current ranges, faster response times and lower cost. The simplicity of open-loop sensors makes them an attractive solution for attaining these objectives. This article discusses three new families of sensors which allow the nominal current to […]

Onsite power for remote mining locations

The need for a secure, efficient power supply is as important to mining operations as the equipment used by the mine to keep production up and running, sometimes on a continuous basis. Many remote mine sites are located at a great distance from the nearest power grid, resulting in the need to establish reliable off-the-grid […]

How modern gas turbines achieve excellent environmental performance at high load

This article explains how the gas turbines used at the Dedisa and Avon peaking power plants – which were highlighted in the June 2016 edition of Energize (“Privately owned peaking power station nears completion”) – achieve their environmental performance with lower NOx emissions even when operating at peak load. Dedisa and Avon peaking power stations […]

Compatible with renewable diesel fuel

  Cummins has announced that its B4.5, B6.7 and L9 engine platforms are compatible with paraffinic renewable diesel fuels meeting the EN 15940 specification. Compared with conventional fossil-based diesel, paraffinic diesel fuels offer the potential to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by between 40 and 90%. Paraffinic diesel fuels can be used as a 100% […]
