Oh the possibilities with energy technologies
My fascination with Energy Technologies continues to be fueled by the variety of applications I come across. So in the morning we talk about LED lights helping to reduce energy consumption in residential and commercial buildings. At lunch we talk about solar inverters and in the afternoon oil exploration becomes the subject.The common theme is the use of semiconductors in an ever increasing number of fields to make things cooler, more efficient or live longer.A pretty wide spread theme with all of those is the increasing number of measurement points to improve system efficiency. Two recent examples I have come across have to do with high temperatures: Jet engines and drill bits used in oil fields. Both have a very high cost of failing and are fairly expensive pieces of machinery to start with. Preventative maintenance and monitoring is key.Testing and characterizing semiconductors at temperatures as high as 200C makes it easier for customers to send their electronics down hole or up in the sky.
