On the Grid

  • Four TI Designs created by the Smart Grid & Energy team at TI were recently awarded Platform Certification status by the G3-PLC Alliance. The TI solutions for G3-PLC were among the very first to achieve this status since the G3-PLC Alliance opened...
  • Harnessing the sun’s energy has been on the rise over the past few decades, and the technology is finally at point where it can start to proliferate to homes and emerging markets. While the solar market in the developed countries is expected to...
  • Mission-critical equipment on the worldwide energy grid is just one power fault away from damage or failure! Relays and circuit breakers can make the difference between reliable protection and expensive repairs on equipment sitting down the line... and...
  • Imagine a city where traffic lights intelligently adjust their timing with traffic load, people make their way around in semi-autonomous vehicles, and lights intensity adjusts with commuter needs as city unwinds into the evening. Learn how TI Innovations...
  • Expanding on TI’s leadership in smart metering technology , we’ve recently released a series of FRAM-based microcontrollers that enhance the operational efficiency of utility flow meters systems for gas, water and heat metering. The MSP430FR69x...
  • Welcome to another blog post in celebration of #OnTheGrid week! This blog post takes a look at the design of solar micro inverters—an emerging segment of the solar power industry and an increasingly reliable and efficient way to get power “on...
  • Establishing a smart grid is critical for the future of our energy supplies. Grid inefficiencies, aging infrastructure, and damaged systems across the globe are causing us to lose energy. TI created a Smart Grid and Energy solutions team to help solve...
  • The goal of the smart grid is to improve the efficiency, reliability and sustainability of the production and distribution of electricity. It’s therefore no surprise that smart grid efforts have extended to renewable energy in recent years to further...
  • Our friends over on TI's Think.Innovate. blog recently asked Markus Staeblein, General Manager of our Smart Grid and Energy solutions team, to discuss why the future depends on a smart electricity grid. Wind and solar are some of the newer components...
  • As we take a broad look at the Internet of Things (IoT) this week, I wanted to take a deeper look at how the IoT will deliver a smarter grid (and visa versa) to enable more information and connectivity throughout the infrastructure and to homes. Through...
