The Importance of Power Electronics

The systems and machines of our world depend on power electronics for the ability to run efficiently and sustainably. Power electronics is the application of solid-state electronics for the control and conversion of electric power. It applies to both the systems and products involved in converting and controlling the flow of electrical energy, allowing the electricity needed for everyday products to be delivered with maximum efficiency in the smallest and lightest package.

Will Plasma Chemical Technologies Spur a Nuclear Energy Boom?

In February 2014, the Federal government announced that a $6.5 billion loan would be given toward the construction of a nuclear power plant in Waynesboro, Georgia, marking the first time since 1996 that new nuclear reactors would be built.

This news was received with mixed reviews, as nuclear power is a controversial issue since Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear meltdown following the country’s devastating earthquake and tsunami. Since then, nuclear power has raised more concerns than before.
