The main difference between a switch mode power supply and a linear power supply is that the former uses switches to control the flow of energy, while the latter uses resistors to control the voltage output. This means that switch mode power supplies are more efficient than regulated power supplies, as the resistors in the linear regulator dissipate the extra energy in the form of heat. However, switched mode power supplies generate noise due to the high-speed switching process, so it's important to choose the right type of power supply for your application.

Renewable energy is defined as energy that is derived from renewable resources that are renewed naturally on a human timescale and may be harvested. It encompasses a variety of energy sources such as solar, wind, tides, waves, and geothermal etc. To cover requirements of renewable energy, the IEA predicts that renewable energy will account for over 30% of global power generation by 2030, with solar PV accounting for 10%. Over 50% (solar PV: 20%) by 2040, and over 80% (solar PV: 60%) by the end of this century.

The world’s manufacturing sector has largely ground to a halt due to the on-going disruptions to global supply chains. International travel restrictions and seismic shifts in demand and supply due to the Coronavirus pandemic has left dents in our highly globalised distribution networks. In many markets, this has led to dramatic reductions in supply. Burdened by a complex manufacturing process, is the semiconductor or integrated circuit (IC). Global shortages in ICs have decimated the supply chains of many key industries, with the poster-boy of this semiconductor crisis being the automotive industry. Industry analysts believe that the shortages will affect automotive production for at least two years.
