Packaged solutions to vehicle emission control
Increasing pressure to reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere has led to a number of design changes for internal combustion engines as well as addition investment by coal fired power stations and waste incinerators. As attention turns to the oxides of nitrogen, collectively known as NOx gases, commercial diesel engine manufacturers, amongst others, are looking for packaged solutions that will deliver reliable emissions control, says Neil Saunders of B├╝rkert Fluid Control Systems

Automation for full-scale liquid air energy storage facility
An environmentally neutral, grid-scale energy storage system that utilises electrical energy to liquefy the air around us, store it, then expand it back through a generator to feed power into the grid may sound a bit like tomorrow’s world. It is however, a very real prospect since the new 5MW Liquid Air Energy Storage (LAES) facility, designed by Highview Power Storage will soon be operational, thanks in part to control and systems integration work from Optimal Industrial Automation

Planning a route through the automation generation game
One of the principles regularly quoted by plant engineers is: ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. This isn’t always appropriate but when it is, it can relate to machinery that has delivered over ten, 20 or even 30 years with almost total reliability. But what happens when the equipment’s age becomes an issue in itself? Jeremy Shinton of Mitsubishi Electric shares his experience of managing obsolescence and maintaining, updating and replacing tried and trusted hardware in the field of automation technology

Transformer development can lead to a key role in smart grids
High-efficiency distribution transformers with on-load tap changers can help distribution network operators and owners of commercial distribution rings to secure supply in light of increasing voltage fluctuations from renewable energy generation. Erika Wilson, joint MD of Wilson Power Solutions, explains

Avoiding the 'copycat culture' in PMAC motor design
The design of brushless PMAC and PMDC motors — in particular the selection of stator slot and rotor pole combinations — has often appeared to result from a copycat culture, rather than being based on sound design principles, according to Motorsolver president Jim Hendershot

Cost-effective technologies key to success of AD sector
The future of the UK renewable energy sector is at a crossroads, with renewable heat generation in particular, being a primary focus for the UK Government. However, the favoured technology path ahead is still not clear and with ever reducing FIT payments, innovative but cost-effective renewable technologies will be a key factor of success. Martin Grant, Lipp’s UK Marketing and Sales Manager, explains why this is especially true in the world of Anaerobic Digestion
