Battery Construction Issues and Specialty Material Solutions

Today’s demand for energy usage in a wide range of applications has necessitated the creation of more powerful and compact energy storage solutions. This, in turn, has led to increased complexity both in the chemistries and methods of storage used, as well as more complex methods for regulating and maintaining and protecting those systems. Modern design of batteries and battery packs requires accurately determining the challenges that will be faced and choosing the right materials to combat those problems.

Intro to Protecting Power Supplies

Power supplies handle an important task in our increasingly electronic world. These devices are used to convert power from one type to another (i.e. AC to DC) or regulate voltage from a source to its destination. These devices have become standard in many consumer electronics devices, where they convert AC power from transmission lines to DC power used in appliances.
