Using renewable in this fashion might be the best use of the energy. In other words, immediate use. Since green energy is so sporadic, regulation becomes an issue. One day the solar it peak, the next day it's partly cloudy. How does energy like that get stored? Instead of storing it, use it immediately. Probably, one of the most efficient ideas I have seen yet.
PTC will offer a virtual desktop environment for its Creo product design applications, potentially freeing engineers to run them from remote desktops on a variety of operating systems and mobile devices.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
