  • Fuzzy maximum power extraction control for a photovoltaic water pumping system

    AC loads present a delicate matter for photovoltaic systems, and this is because of the photovoltaic panel's operating point, which moves randomly according to irradiance changes; in this case, almost of photovoltaic water pumping systems use a DC–DC converter to ensure either the maximum power extracted from PV panel or the load needs. For AC motor pumps, an inverter must follow this chopper. ...

  • No Small Task: Regulating Nanotechnology To Ensure Safety, Maximize Benefits

    Nanotechnology is about engineering at the same size as large molecules like DNA, which is two nanometers wide — a nanometer is a billionth of a meter — or even smaller. Smallness has its virtues. Nanoscale zinc oxide diffracts light better, making a better sunscreen. Similarly, ultrathin nanoscale films are improving the efficiency of cell phone screens and photovoltaics. In the future, ...
