    Hydroelectric turbine-generator units are equipped with different types of permanent monitoring sensors mainly for maintenance and safety but not for the efficiency measurement. Acceptance tests such as the efficiency measurement require additional precision instrumentation. Several measurement techniques exist to perform the testing and making the choice depends on the power plant configuration a... View full abstract»

    Wind measurements for identifying and characterizing wind resources require instrumentation and analysis techniques for defining signal processing features for gusts, turbulence, and inflow winds. This paper describes the importance of those features for determining responses of wind turbines. In addition, when the system is deployed, the instrumentation that must be coordinated to manage the util... View full abstract»

    Existing photovoltaic (PV) power plants impact the power grid in a negative way due to a lack of voltage regulation, energy storage, forecasting and wide-area communications, measurement, and control. Currently utility- scale distributed solar PV plants on distribution networks have nominal capacities that are compatible with distribution substation MVA ratings e.g., between 5 and 30 MW. Furthermo... View full abstract»

    Energy is very important to the world as a driver of the modern society. According to estimations done by the International Energy Agency (IEA), the total global energy consumption is about 17 500 TW·h/yr [1]. In the past, fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas supplied the biggest part of this global consumption, and they were far larger than those of the renewable energy sources as F...

    Energy storage is not a new concept but is gaining importance in the context of the energy transition paradigm. It is expected to play a key role in future electric power systems as the growing development of renewable energy resources and their increasing share in the energy mix introduce significant challenges to the existing power grid due to the high variability of these sources and loads.

    On April 6, 2009 the Italian town of L'Aquila was hit by a strong magnitude 6.3 earthquake that killed over 300 people, caused over 1600 casualties, and collapsed most buildings in L'Aquila and the neighboring villages. View full abstract»

    Reading about things is all fine and good, but the best way to understand a concept is to put it into practice. After years of one of us (Shlomo) teaching about analog to digital converters (ADCs) and digital to analog converters (DACs) in general, pipelined ADCs in particular, and discussing, experimenting with, and writing about compressive sensing, the time had come to build a sensor that utili...
