Voltage surge and transient suppression in EV chargers

Anything powered by an external source of electricity needs to be protected from voltage transients and surges, as it is not a question of whether such hazards will occur, but rather how often they will occur (and of what severity they will be). As might be expected, there are internationally agreed-upon regulations for surge and… Read more »

Two- and three-wheel EVs delivering more emissions reduction than cars

We humans are, at least in theory, proceeding with a broad range of measures to slow climate change —deploying renewable energy sources, protecting forests, cleaning up industrial emissions, etc. According to a recent study by the World Resources Institute, only a single one of these projects is currently on track to meet the goals set… Read more »
