Smart Wires Launches Newest Product, the Power Router
PARIS, 2016-08-25 00:31 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Smart Wires announced the roll-out of its latest power flow control technology, the Power Router™, at the CIGRÉ 2016 General Session in Paris. The state-of-the-art device is currently being deployed at utilities around the world with numerous pilots in place. The Smart Wires engineering team brought years of experience to the Power Router development, leveraging the success of other products while integrating revolutionary power electronics that enable the device to increase or decrease transmission line reactance.

Designed to be the most powerful device in the Smart Wires product line, the Power Router is typically installed on existing transmission towers or in banks within or near the transmission right-of-way. The device is designed for modular deployment, allowing for flexible and more efficient infrastructure investments. The Power Router expands on the capabilities of the Power Guardian® technology with increased per-unit impedance change and the ability to synthesize a highly tunable capacitance or inductance. This new functionality allows the Power Router to address an even greater set of network challenges and offers electric utilities another degree of freedom in applications where pulling power is required.
Power Router deployments can be completed in a vastly compressed timeline compared to conventional construction, enabling faster integration of renewable generation and often eliminating the need for reconductoring or new line construction. Like other Smart Wires technologies, the devices can be deployed anywhere along a line, mitigating customer concerns and avoiding environmentally sensitive areas. Even at a fraction of the cost of conventional power flow control solutions, the Power Router generates added value by reducing construction outage windows and leaving open the possibility for redeployment when system topology changes and new needs arise.
"Our priority is a laser-like focus on delivering integrated end-to-end power flow control solutions designed to rigorous utility requirements. Early indicators from our client base who have previewed and piloted this technology are very promising. We are helping utilities to build intelligent assets and transform the way they plan their grids,” explained Haroon Inam, CTO for Smart Wires.
About Smart Wires
Smart Wires solutions are deployed at leading utilities such as PG&E, Southern Company, TVA and EirGrid. Our modular approach to grid infrastructure is unique and has several advantages over traditional power flow control solutions that typically require long-lead times, are highly complex, demand significant capital investment, and ultimately represent single points of failure. Smart Wires solutions can be deployed incrementally and reconfigured as needs evolve, thereby reducing investment risk, shortening lead times, and providing flexibility in an era of increasing operational uncertainty. Smart Wires is located in the San Francisco Bay Area with offices in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Ireland.

Novel Preclinical Research Tools Provide Humanized Immune Response to Advance Immunotherapeutic Development, Live Webinar Hosted by Crown Bioscience19.10.2017 14:00 | Pressemelding
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crown Bioscience, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crown Bioscience International (TWSE:ticker 6554) and a global drug discovery and development services company providing translational platforms to advance oncology, inflammation, cardiovascular and metabolic disease research, announces a live webinar to be presented by Dr. Michelle Mack, Director of Global Scientific Engagement, entitled "Beyond Syngeneics - Novel Tools for Addressing Human Specificity in Immuno-Oncology." Checkpoint inhibitors like anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, and anti-CTLA-4 have revolutionized cancer treatment and have recently gained approval in several cancer types. Despite their potential, immunotherapies face significant development challenges due to the specificity and complexity of the human immune system upon which they act. Crown Bioscience has generated innovative research models to address these obstacles early during preclinical drug development.
Perfectus Aluminum Inc. Responds to Trade Group19.10.2017 13:00 | Pressemelding
ONTARIO, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perfectus Aluminum Inc. has issued the following: On October 12, 2017 the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC), an industry group representing largely American aluminum extruders, posted to its blog a false narrative regarding a suit to which Perfectus Aluminum Inc. is a related party. The government is not "seeking unpaid duties from Perfectus for goods brought into the country." Rather, the government is attempting to use a 2017 Department of Commerce determination to assess retroactive antidumping duties on goods imported as early as 2011. It is discouraging that AEC would tout such an obviously egregious government overstep as a "victory" to their members and the industry: were it one of AEC's own members facing such an obvious violation of fair play and due process, it would rightfully argue that government overreach is a threat to manufacturers everywhere. In addition to the hypocrisy of the AEC's promotion of this case, its s
