3. New Electronic Technology Advances Fuel Cell Development
A significant new breakthrough by researchers at Virginia Polytech is a major step in the development of fuel cell technology in increasing the efficiency and reducing the size and cost of fuel cells. Researchers have developed a highly efficient converter that can boost low DC voltage produced by solid oxide fuel cell stacks to the higher voltage required for conversion to AC. Go to story

4. UPS Systems Protect Test Labs from Power Outages
The development of a storage area network (SAN) system involves long-term testing and requires uninterrupted power for periods up to several months. A few years ago, the facilities of a California-based leader in this field—located near an airport—were subject to momentary power disturbances due to “jet wash” from air traffic. To make matters worse, the facilities were severely impacted by the rolling blackouts during the California energy crisis. UPS to the rescue. Go to story
