Renewable energies are driven by increased environmental awareness and limited fossil energy resources. Our Virtual Seminar about renewable energies provides you with 5 webinars about topics like energy harvesting, photovoltaic application design, smart metering, smart grid and more.
From µWH to kWH…1 eV at a time - energy harvesting with Texas Instruments
Presented by Matthieu Chevrier, Texas Instruments
Energy Harvesting is the use of ambient energy to provide electrical power for small electronic and electrical devices.This webinar explains energy harvesting principles and which problems this technology solves. It gives an overview about energy harvesting technologies and it introduces Texas Instruments solution for energy harvesting applications
This webinar will provide photovoltaic application designers an overview of Microsemi’s solar technology portfolio, which enables efficient, reliable and cost-sensitive implementation of the entire range of photovoltaic applications, including power harvesting, power management, power switching and power monitoring.
There is an increasing demand from utility companies for remote reading of meters for water usage, electricity etc. and since such meters are often installed in buildings or underground good radio coverage and extended distance range is becoming more important for this purpose.
Dedicated mode N has been defined for Wireless M-bus EN13757-4:2011 operating in the new harmonized frequency band at 169MHz for metering in Europe with long range transmission also available for communication using multi-hop repeaters. Telit has in-house RF knowledge and experience in developing Wireless m-bus standard protocols and offers pin-to-pin compatible modules that support different Wireless M-bus modes for both EN13757-4 and EN13757-5 operating on 169Mhz and 868 MHz frequencies.
Achieving efficient Smart Metering and Smart Grid solutions
Presented by Meera Balakrishnan, Freescale
Smart Metering and Smart Grid projects are gaining momentum through Governmental mandates and stimulus support worldwide. Learn in this webinar how Freescale helps you deliver energy efficient smart metering and grid solutions to address this growing market.
Simulation of a solar plant shortens development time and optimizes the efficiency of the solar cells.The energy of the sun is inexhaustible. Currently we use ten thousandths of the energy from the sun that reaches the Earth. To optimize and expand the usage of this clean energy source, Model-Based Design can be used to develop a highly efficient photovoltaic solar plant. Integrated modeling of photovoltaic modules, controller algorithms and inverter technology in one environment, together with automatic code generation, can lead to shorter development cycles. Furthermore you can maximize your efficiency by using optimization methods within your simulation models.
