2016 State of Technology Report: The latest trends in power systems

Sept. 27, 2016
Control’s latest State of Technology report delves into the many aspects of power systems of interest in process plants.

[sidebar id =1]From sourcing and ensuring uninterrupted flows of clean electricity to monitoring, regulating and metering generation and consumption throughout a facility, process automation professionals who want a smooth-running, efficient and reliable facility are well advised to seek and control power.

This anthology of recent articles delves into the many aspects of power systems of interest in process plants. Remote and wireless systems are speeding development and standardization of energy harvesting and improved battery systems.

Line-powered supplies that used to only transform electricity and maybe offer surge protection are now monitoring and measuring current and voltage profiles, implementing alerts and alarms, and sending data up to higher-level systems for analysis and optimization. And forward-thinking engineers are demanding increased integration of process and power automation systems.
