Start-stop systems in today's passenger cars are almost always powered by lead-acid or AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) batteries, but the relatively high cranking power and frequent start-stop cycles degrade batteries quickly. In addition, poor low temperature performance limits the functionality of battery-based solutions. From an environmental standpoint,...

It is sometimes difficult for a layperson to understand why we simply cannot replace fossil fuel energy production with wind and solar and be done with it. Well, one answer to that question is "inertia". In a traditional grid, the rotating masses of spinning generators sync with the frequency of the system. The rotating masses store inertia as rotating...

As solar, wind, and other renewable energy methods become more prevalent, micro- and offgrid installations will suffer from frequency instability and high risk of blackouts. Changes in wind and/or solar energy production have an impact on the frequency a grid can deliver. Also, if the exact amount of electricity being used is not matched by generation,...

Frequency deviations are caused by imbalances in load in generation and lead to high risk of load shedding or grid black outs. The higher the rate of renewable energy production is of the energy mix, the more of a problem the variation of frequency can become.
