What are Some Emerging Electrical Applications?

There are many emerging electrical applications. Some of the emerging electrical applications that can achieve advancements in many of society’s conundrums include:

Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things is a network of physical, connected devices that can communicate using sensors, software, and other technologies. This includes seven billion connected IoT devices like phones, refrigerators, vehicles, electronic components, and smart home devices. With the help of IoT, we can collect, analyze, and use data to control and automate processes.

The Internet of Things helps us access low-cost, low-power sensor technology, allowing manufacturers affordable and reliable sources for IoT devices. It is easier than ever to network IoT devices using Internet protocols to connect sensors in the cloud easily. Cloud computing platforms make it much easier for businesses and consumers to access the infrastructure to manage IoT devices.

Battery Technology

Scientists are on the cusp of advanced battery technology, experimenting with silicon and lithium anodes, solid-state electrolytes, and advanced battery designs. Some of the advanced battery technology includes lithium-sulfur, sodium-ion, redox flow batteries, Zn-ion, Zn-Br, and ZN-air batteries. These new batteries can be used to enhance portable electronic devices, electric vehicles, medical devices, and industrial equipment.

Electric vehicles are taking advantage of lithium batteries. These batteries power our cars, long-haul trucks, and domestic airplanes. Lithium-air batteries use a solid electrolyte instead of the liquid electrolyte used in lithium-ion batteries. They offer a longer driving time with four times the energy density.

Smart Grid Technology

Power generation has been transformed into smart grids for better and more efficient power generation. A smart grid uses digital technology to monitor and manage the flow of electricity. They not only deliver power to customers, but customers can also send overage electricity to the grid during peak usage.

Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicle production is accelerating with the help of charging infrastructure and government funding. In addition to Telsa, many car companies are transforming their vehicle fleets into EVs. Ford, General Motors, Honda, Toyota, and Stellantis have pledged to meet or exceed government guidelines to produce half of all vehicles sold as EVs by 2030. EVs come in different configurations.

All-Electric Vehicle – operates entirely on battery power, with no engine parts.

Plug-in Hybrid – offers both gasoline and battery-powered fueling or can be operated in all-electric mode.

Hybrid EV – runs entirely off gas but uses an electric motor to lower fuel transmission.

Wireless Power Transfer

Another emerging electrical application is wireless power transfer. Wireless power transfer transmits electrical energy from a power source to a receiver using an interconnecting wire. This type of power transfer system uses time-varying electromagnetic fields for energy transmission.

Wireless power transfer can be used in smart homes to power devices like lighting and security systems. In automotive, it can help charge contactless electric vehicles more efficiently and conveniently. Wireless power transfer can also power and charge wearables like smartwatches and medical devices. Electrical applications are expanding their footprint outside the traditional domain of electricians.
