Tag: electric energy

Electrical energy is the energy newly derived from electric potential energy or concretic energy. When loosely used to describe energy absorbed or delivered by an electrical circuit (for example, one provided by an electric power utility) “electrical energy” talks about energy which has been converted from electrical potential energy. This energy is supplied by the combination of electric current and electrical potential that is delivered by the circuit. At the point that this electrical potential energy has been converted to another type of energy, it ceases to be electrical potential energy. Thus, all electrical energy is potential energy before it is delivered to the end-use. Once converted from potential energy, electrical energy can always be called another type of energy (heat, light, motion, etc.).

Making Power Multitask With CHP/CCHP

Making Power Multitask With CHP/CCHP

Cogeneration, or combined heat and power (CHP), uses a heat engine or power station to generate electricity and heat for onsite uses. Trigeneration, or combined cooling, heat, and power (CCHP), is the simultaneous generation of electricity and useful heating and cooling as a result of the combustion of fuel or

Crime Stopper: Water Meters and Magnets

How do you protect your meter network from losing its measuring capability? One option to improve and protect measure devices like dry-dial water meters is to use passive magnetic field indicators to detect the action of a strong magnetic field primarily coming from neodymium magnets.

Connectivity And Resilience

The great northeast power blackout of 2003 was a reminder that reliance on large grids has widespread implications. The power outage—lasting several days in some areas—affected millions in the US and Canada. Nearly a decade later, Hurricane Sandy left the area without power for weeks. Many in the energy industry

Addressing Peak Energy Demand with the Tesla Powerpack

The Tesla Team September 15, 2016 Last October, a catastrophic rupture in the Aliso Canyon natural gas reservoir caused a methane gas spill that displaced more than 8,000 Californians and released an unprecedented 1.6 million pounds of methane into the atmosphere. Today, the Aliso Canyon leak is considered the worst
