Plants convert sunshine into energy sources (glucose, cellulose) while exhausting oxygen. The reversible fuel cell is similar. The regular fuel cell is an electrochemical device that converts the chemical energy of a fuel (without combustion) into electricity. A reversible fuel cell (RFC) operates in two directions. In its "reverse" mode, it generates hydrogen from electricity and water, while in the "forward" mode it generates electricity from hydrogen. For the past decade, I've been writing and talking (including on TV1) about the need for fully developing the automated RFC. This means mass production of an inexpensive device that can convert intermittent energy forms…Full Story
Today’s safety instrumented systems (SIS) increasingly rely on programmable logic solvers to protect lives, property and the environment.
