Creating the Most Profitable Approach to Your E-Mobility Charging Station Strategy

The production of electric vehicles is exponentially expanding and will continue to do so for many years to come. Multiple car manufacturers have committed to rolling out several new all-electric car lines. Some have even committed to a fully-electric, gasoline-free lineup in the not too distant future.  

As gas stations started to spring up and roll across the nation in the early twentieth century, EV-charging stations will follow a similar path in the twenty-first century.  

The two major questions related to this rollout are:  

  1. How quickly will the grid adapt to this increased need for more electricity? 
  2. How can you rollout your own EV-charging station strategy in the most profitable way?

Hydrogen Production: How To Select The Right Power Electronics Solution for You

As engineers start to think about the design and prototype for hydrogen production components, the starting point is not always immediately clear. When it comes to generating hydrogen through electrolysis, you have a few options depending on your specific application.  

You’re getting ready to invest a lot of money into scaling your production up. We want to make sure you have all the relevant information to make the best decision so you don’t make the wrong choice.   

What does the “right” decision mean? While there are a few different ways to accomplish this from an engineering perspective, there are far fewer options that will allow you to scale your production up quickly and profitably. 

We are committed to helping you make the best decision on an initial design that will lead the strongest strategy to then scale that application up in an efficient and effective way.

Dynapower: Becoming a Primary Player in E-Mobility

The world of transportation is undergoing a massive shift from gas and diesel-powered cars, trucks, ships and planes to ones powered by electricity. The shift is being necessitated by the need to eliminate harmful climate changing greenhouses gases. The transportation sector in the US emits the largest amount of greenhouse gases (28%), and its transition to alternative fuels is imperative to the slowing of catastrophic climate change.

iTherm Technologies: Your Source for Induction Heating Power Supplies

When it comes to induction heating, precision is everything. That’s where iTherm Technologies comes in. iTherm manufactures unique induction heating power supplies and magnetic coil head assemblies at its factory in Vermont, USA for a wide variety of heating applications. 

induction-heating-power-supply

These power supplies are all air-cooled and offer output power levels of up to 5-kilowatts. Each power supply utilizes HIG™ induction technology to deliver repeatable power with output precision to 1W regardless of coil type, configuration or load type. This technology—referred to as Harmonic Inductive Gain—uses a pulsed output signal rich in high frequency harmonics to deliver an intensely changing magnetic field, which allows for efficiency gains that permit air-cooled power supplies and coils to be realized.

Employee Profile: Patrick Carroll, Energy Storage Service Leader

While you’re familiar with our groundbreaking energy storage products, you may not be so familiar with the people behind those products. Today, we’re going to highlight one of those people.

Patrick Carroll is the Energy Storage Service Leader here at Dynapower. He joined the company back in 2015.

 “I’ve always been mechanically inclined even when I was a kid,” Patrick says. “Once, I took my tricycle apart and my dad got up and said ‘I’m not putting that back together’ so I did it myself.”
