Optimising the performance and efficiency of industrial brakes
Heavy-duty braking system designs are as diverse as the different industries in which they are employed. From marine and mining to metal working and paper processing, systems are required to perform static, dynamic and emergency braking with precise controlled force. Steve Powell, Product Manager at Twiflex, part of the global Altra Industrial Motion group, offers some advice on installation and maintenance to optimise the performance and service life of these very important systems

Can biofuels put the brakes on blackouts?
The National Grid's announcement of an increased risk of blackouts this winter has resulted in buying in additional supplies at a cost of £36m. Tim Miller, Director of Operations at the European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI), argues that an innovative supply and demand structure could change the way we generate, consume and store our energy

Using database technology to make the most of smart grids
There are multiple pressures on the power supply network. More people are using it and the pressure to reduce carbon emissions from power generation is increasing. Part of the solution will lie in developing smart grids that provide better husbanding of the available power — metering it more precisely, reducing transmission losses and encouraging more sustainable practices by consumers. Data management specialist Raima says that a key characteristic of a smart grid is the efficient and timely use of operational data to constantly match supply to demand
