    Whereas the 19th century was the century of the steam engine and the 20th century was the century of the internal combustion engine, it is likely that the 21st century will be the century of the fuel cell. Full cells are now on the verge of being introduced commercially, revolutionising the way we presently produce power. Fuel cells can use hydrogen as a fuel, offering the prospect of supplying th...

    In the paper in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society in which Wheatstone described the DC bridge that now bears his name, he attributes the idea of the bridge to S.H. Christie. French and German translations published the following year and possibly prepared from a preprint of the paper do not carry this attribution and this may explain why the bridge does not bear Christie's name. ...

    The introduction in the 1890s of the heavy-duty LVDC rapid-transit railway, drawing current from an AC power station, required some form of rectifier for converting the supply to DC in the conductor rail or contact wire. The development of the HVDC railway by 1915 likewise necessitated rectifiers. Though the principle of using the mercury arc to convert AC to DC was well understood by 1905, the fi...

    Filters made from ordinary textile fibres are too coarse to remove micrometre-sized dust particles, which are responsible for much respiratory disease. If, however, an electric charge is applied to the fibres, a filter can provide a very good respiratory protection. Fibres can be charged by triboelectric exchange, by corona or by induction; and charge levels can give rise to electric fields in the... View full abstract»

    The Alexanderson alternator was a rotary mechanical generator of radio carrier-waves at frequencies up to 100 kHz and beyond, developed in the early 1900s. In spite of the many technical problems involved in constructing machines of this sort they proved to be very successful, particularly for military work. One fully operational installation still exists today in southern Sweden View full abstract»
