A new approach from NC State ECE researchers creates multi-junction solar cells with off-the-shelf components and intermetallic bonding.
Researchers in the FREEDM Systems Center received a $3.1 million research award from the U.S. Department of Energy to advance solar energy’s role in strengthening the resilience of the U.S. electricity grid.
Research within Engineering is advancing electric vehicle technology.
A new electric vehicle fast charger is at least 10 times smaller than existing systems and wastes 60 percent less power during the charging process, without sacrificing the charging time.
Three NC State ECE faculty members are 2019 recipients of fund awards from Chancellor’s Innovation Fund as they develop microneedle patches and fast chargers for electric vehicles.
New system can simultaneously deliver watts of power and transmit data at rates high enough to stream video over the same wireless connection.
Researchers are rolling out a new manufacturing process and chip design for silicon carbide (SiC) power devices, which can be used to more efficiently regulate power in technologies that use electronics.
A new study using complex computational models finds that smart solid-state transformers (SSTs) could be used to make a stable, reliable “smart grid” – allowing the power distribution system to route renewable energy from homes and businesses into the power grid.
