Photovoltaic Cells, Graphene & Eye Tracking Technology – Innovative Ideas At Your Doorstep

As our economy begins to re-open, many of us wonder where things will go from here. We, at Unique Electrical Contractors, would like to take a few moments to take your mind off of the heavy burdens many of us are facing today by providing you with some insight into some newer and innovative technology that’s pretty eye-catching!

 

High Efficiency Photovoltaic Cells

So what are high efficiency photovoltaic cells, you may ask? They are a conversion efficiency of incident light to electric power. In other words, it is solar efficiency. Most of us are fully aware of what solar power is but do you know what it can do for you? Here in AZ, we obtain a high amount of efficiency with solar panels because we have a lot of sun exposure. The more sun, the better the efficiency.

Many consumers are afraid of the initial cost when considering installing solar on their homes but the reality is, with a good system, the recovery time can be significantly expedient as your monthly utility bill will be greatly reduced.

A solar system installation cost can vary depending on the size. Right now and through the end of the year, there is a 26% federal solar tax credit and an AZ state tax credit which can bring your cost down significantly.

Each system will generate a different amount of savings based on the size and customer usage but it’s definitely something worth looking into.

Green Energy Electrical Power Converter

So, maybe now you’re considering the benefits of solar energy. What more do you need to know? Electrical power converters. As solar becomes more commonplace, it was important to create a device to improve the system that feeds the energy from solar to the electric grid. There is now a high-frequency matrix converter to simplify the process of turning renewable energy into electricity.

The best part of the system is its ability to simultaneously accept energy from a variety of sources, including solar panels, and covert it for use in the electrical grid, providing  increased efficiency for your solar system.

Graphene

Is an allotrope of carbon in the form of single layer atoms and is actually considered a two-dimensional element. It has a special set of properties that set it apart from other allotropes of carbon. It is about 100 times stronger than steel yet it is significantly less dense. It conducts heat and electricity very efficiently and is nearly transparent. So, what is the benefit of graphene? It will provide immense gains in battery life for portable devices and is well-suited for wearable technology that collects biometric information from the user. It may prove to be very useful to the future of electrical engineering.

Eye Tracking Technology

Eye tracking technology calculates data about the user; detecting presence, attention, and focus as well as the position of a person’s eye and pupil size. It provides insights into human behavior and condition that digitalize the way people interact with machines and devices, providing a platform for businesses to develop innovative solutions and applications for its consumers. It’s a pretty straightforward technology but the secret is its capability in being able to carry out eye tracking in a way that can be used by everyone under a variety of conditions with computational efficiency, increased precision and within the limited spaced that is posed by modern devices.

In Closing

There is a variety of technology out there, some of which we are familiar with and may use more frequently and some not maybe not as much. One thing is for sure, it is all very interesting and amazing  to see the new and innovative progresses we, as humanity, are coming up with everyday.
