Electricity + Control: Latest Issue

Electricity + Control August 2015

ElectricityandControl August 2015In the August 2015 issue of Electricity + Control, we present a diverse collection of technical stories. We have technology that is aesthetically amazing in 'Breaking the Surface' (Beckhoff), technology that is state-of-the-art and controversial – the VVER nuclear reactors (Rosatom); technology that has electrical safety as a top priority (R&C Instrumentation); technology that is practical (as in keeping the lights on) (Powermode) and (Jasco); technology that measures efficiency in a calibration laboratory (Keller) – would you believe that walking back and forth in a laboratory can amount to several kilometres in a day's work? The final article – technology that considers the role of three phase power transformers in saving energy in industry – courtesy North-West University.

We enjoy receiving your comments.

Have a good August!
