SEMI and the U.S. Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium (PVMC) announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to enhance their cooperation in the areas of standards and roadmap activities
Figure 1: Typical battery packs like those being developed for electric vehicles and grid-tied energy storage systems are expensive, short-lived, big, complex, and limiting. Cell variations drive the degradation in pack capacity over the life of the pack. Ultimately, the weakest cells constrain both pack performance and operating life.
A European consortium, consisting of DNV KEMA, Fraunhofer ISE, EMD International, RAH, and RFVV has begun an EU-funded project to develop modeling and simulation tools for optimally integrating electrical

Properly implemented, galvanic isolation is an effective defense against disturbances in the ground plane often referred to as ground loops, which occur as a result of varying electrical potentials.
Physical limitations require that electrical components on a PCB connect to the ground plane at different physical
