Electrifying vehicle technologies in the modern era

Despite appearing to be a modern phenomenon, the first electric vehicle took to the road in 1832 and in 1899, outselling all other available options, including steam and gasoline powered vehicles. Since 1935, with the invention of the internal combustion engines, gasoline-powered vehicles have become the popular choice. This changed in 2016, which saw a record in the sale of electric vehicles worldwide, with 750,000 cars sold.

Reliable resistor supply for legacy systems

Plant managers across the UK have struggled for years to replace damaged power resistors for one reason or another. Often, the original supplier no longer exists in the UK market, or does not supply resistors any longer, so managers are forced to look for the required components elsewhere. Whether the application is crane control, pumps, fans or compressors, replacement resistors are still needed for legacy systems.

Software engineering makes resistor earthquake-proof

Cressall Resistors, has designed a resistor that operates at 132kV and can withstand a high-voltage impulse of up to 650kV. Furthermore, because it’s intended for use in Australia, it can survive an earthquake or cyclone on an epic scale. Here, Martin Nicholls, Sales Director, Cressall, explains how finite element analysis (FEA) helped ensure that the construction would withstand the most tempestuous elements.
