Magazine article: new energy concepts — new testing concepts downloadweblink

OMICRON electronicsThu, 19 Feb 2015

The effects of the changes in Germany’s energy policy are already being felt. Together with the photovoltaic systems installed in southern Germany and various biogas facilities, the countless wind turbines along the north German coast should cover at least 35 per cent of Germany’s total energy requirements by 2020. As this OMICRON Magazine article explains, REpower tested a new generation of high-performance offshore wind turbines at selected locations, although they were initially ...

Application note: accurate temperature sensing with an external P-N junction downloadweblink

Linear TechnologyWed, 18 Feb 2015

Many Linear Technology devices use an external PNP transistor to sense temperature. Common examples are the LTC3880, the LTC3883 and the LTC2974. Accurate temperature sensing depends on proper PNP selection, layout and device configuration. This application note reviews the theory of temperature sensing and gives practical advice on implementation.

White paper: how to isolate your 4–20mA signals without affecting loop integrity downloadweblink

OmniflexTue, 10 Feb 2015

A ubiquitous problem with every industrial plant is the interface of plant measurement signals to the monitoring and control systems. Unfortunately for many plants, this is the single biggest area of weakness — and with the success of the organisation depending on these measurements, more attention should be afforded to the integrity of signal conditioning systems. This paper from Omniflex provides practical guidelines on when and how to introduce signal isolation into 4–20mA loops ...

White paper: a new approach for on-site calibration of voltage transformers downloadweblink

OMICRON electronicsTue, 10 Feb 2015

Voltage transformers (VTs) are used in electrical grids for metering and/or protection purposes. The high requirements regarding their precision demand a calibration of the objects before installation. The accuracy classes of VTs are different for protection and metering transformers and are classified depending on the maximum ratio and phase-angle error between the vectors of the primary voltage and the secondary voltage related to the primary side.

Application note: fast-charge circuits for NiCad batteries downloadweblink

Linear TechnologyMon, 9 Feb 2015

The safe, fast charging of NiCad batteries is attractive in many applications. Short charge time requires high current. A potential difficulty with high-current charging is battery heating. Excessive internal heating degrades the battery and can cause venting to the outside atmosphere. As Linear Technology explains here, fast-charge schemes based on monitoring cell voltage during charge suffer because cell voltage is not necessarily indicative of the battery’s charge state. Additionally, ...

Application note: Linear Technology explores power supply layout and EMI downloadweblink

Linear TechnologyTue, 20 Jan 2015

PC-board layout determines the success or failure of every power supply project. It sets functional, electromagnetic interference (EMI) and thermal behaviour. Switching power supply layout is not black magic, but is often overlooked until it is too late in the design process. Fortunately, physics is on your side.
