In my previous post, I explained why measuring the self-discharge on Li-Ion cells is vitally important to both R&D and manufacturing. The downside of measuring self-discharge however, when using the traditional method of measuring the cell’s open circuit voltage (OCV) loss is the amount of time required, typically weeks.   I also shared that… (Show more)
Have you ever wanted to be more efficient? Not just turning the lights off when you leave a room to conserve electricity or xeriscaping your yard to save on water, but have you ever wanted to optimize everything around you in order to increase the effectiveness of tasks in everyday life?   I think about this all the time… in fact, it’s been… (Show more)
Ideally electrical cells would be able to hold their electrical charge without any losses for all time. However, all electrical cells have some amount of self-discharge. Self-discharge is the loss of charge over time while sitting unused and not connected to anything. Self-discharge is a normal attribute of all cells. It results from chemical… (Show more)
Hello everyone,   This is the first in what should be a series of blog posts on photovoltaic (PV) simulators, also known as solar array simulators (SAS).  In this introductory blog post, the topics covered will be: Why you would choose a PV Simulator for your application How a PV simulator differs from a standard DC Power Supply What solutions… (Show more)
