Improved calibrations for solar cells

The International Energy Agency predicts that by 2050 solar power could cover 69 % of electricity generation, making it the world’s largest source of power. For this to happen it will require multiple approaches such as reduced installation costs, increased solar cell efficiencies or the adoption of new technologies. New types...

New standards for solar power

The EU’s renewable energy directive sets a binding target that at least 32 % of energy consumed in Europe comes renewable sources by 2030. Electricity generated from solar cells, also known as photovoltaics (PV), will have a vital role but will require an increased uptake of PV technologies. Operators of solar parks need accur...

Improving wind turbine reliability

Although the EU is on course to meet its renewable energy directive 2020 target of 20 % of its total energy consumption to be sourced from renewable sources, expansion in generation capacity must continue to reach the equivalent 2030 target of 32 %. Electricity generation by wind energy systems (WES) has increased by 350 % ove...

Reliable measurement of turbine gears

While the EU is on course to meet its 2020 target of sourcing 20 % of its total energy consumption from renewable sources, electricity generation capacity will need to continue to grow to meet the next renewable energy directive binding target of 32 % by 2030. The amount of electricity generated by wind energy systems (WES) ha...

New instruments for new power grids

Traditional power grids transmit electricity from a central power plant over transmission lines to substations, from which power is distributed to consumers. This one-way flow lacks real-time monitoring and is not optimised with over 6% of the energy generated lost during transmission. These grids also struggle to integrate the...

A new calibration for current sensors

Europe aims to generate at least 32 % of energy from renewables by 2030 but traditional power networks find it difficult to incorporate these sources of energy which can be variable and bi-directional. This can produce harmonics that distort the AC current already flowing through the grid which compromises the power quality and...
