Hydrogen fuel cells can be used in a wide range of environments such as use in homes, ships, cranes and vehicles. Still, current funding is directed mostly to the transportation sector to be reduce pollution. In this article, we will focus on one of the most exciting uses for fuel cells: a Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV).
National challenges like the aging power grid, increasing energy demands, spiraling cost of generating electricity and its cost on the environment are all pointing towards the need for a grid that can produce and distribute energy more efficiently and reliably.
The Roundtable question for August is “How much do you feel the current push for “green” tech comes from image and the desire to appear ecologically responsible, and how much does it come from a true pursuit of performance improvement in power systems?”

“Global Warming, Carbon Footprint, and Energy Efficiency” are becoming mantras for the industrial manufacturing sector. With energy costs constantly rising leading to increased overhead costs, the need to use electrical energy in a more efficient manner by reducing the amount is at the fundamental basis of this crisis.
A growing number of applications require linear motion sensing, including X-Y tooling tables, pneumatic pistons, automatic sliding doors and zoom lenses. One commonly used technique involves resistive strips (potentiometers). While this approach is simple and inexpensive, it depends on mechanical contacts so it is prone to wearing out.
Gyroscopes are often used for inertial navigation or other applications where high accuracy or stability is required. To maximize performance, the gyros used in these applications are generally calibrated and externally temperature compensated. This article outlines a method for performing calibration and temperature compensation.
