Although wind power has potential, it can be expensive to operate and maintain, and often can only process about 30% of the generated power, according to Juan Sebastián Solís-Chaves, professor with the Department of Energy Engineering at the Federal University of ABC-UFABC in Brazil. In an effort to optimize this process, researchers in Brazil analyzed the commonly used double-fed induction generator-based configuration and considered non-linear control theory as an alternative.Read More

: In this blog, I’m going to take a look out how the technology used in process automation also is being used for other areas of life, whether its robots made of paper or the motors and sensors that run memorial water fountains. I want to take you out of your facility and into engineering and technology applications taking place all around us all of the time.
