Common questions

+ What is the main concept of energy?

Although it is used in many different contexts, the scientific use of the word "energy" has a well-defined and specific meaning: Innate potential to do work or perform an action. Anything that is working, moving another object, or heating it, for example, is using (transferring) energy.

+ What is energy and what are the types of energy?

The existing types of energy are: Mechanical, thermal, electrical, chemical, and nuclear energy, responsible for performing work, movement, and generating electricity. Renewable energy sources are those that can be naturally replaced in the environment, but it is vital to understand that, even if renewable, these sources are not inexhaustible.

+ How is electricity produced?

There are many ways to acquire energy through renewable sources (clean energy) or non-renewable resources (dirty energy). The main examples of clean energy are wind energy, solar energy, and biofuels, which are produced from natural products. The most common examples of dirty energy are: coal, nuclear power, oil, and gas.

+ What can be transformed into energy?

Energy transformation is the physical phenomenon in which energy changes from one form into another. This process happens all the time. From the car, which transforms the chemical energy of gasoline combustion into mechanical energy, to a light bulb that transforms electrical energy into light energy and thermal energy.

+ What are the types of energy and their sources?

Hydraulic Energy: Obtained from river water. Solar energy: Obtained from the sun. Wind Energy: Obtained from the winds. Geothermal Energy: Obtained by the heat within the earth. Biomass Energy: Obtained by living or once-living organisms. Gravitational Energy: Obtained by the waves of the oceans. Hydrogen Energy: Obtained from hydrogen. Fossil Fuels: Obtained from oil, mineral coal, and natural gas. Nuclear Energy: Obtained from elements such as uranium and thorium.

+ What is photovoltaic solar energy?

The operation of photovoltaic solar energy is based on the phenomenon that occurs when particles of sunlight (photons) collide with the silicon atoms present in the solar panel. This action produces a displacement of electrons, which creates a continuous flow of electric current, called photovoltaic solar energy.

+ What is the source of hydroelectric power?

This form of energy is generated by harnessing the power and volume of water. By building dams on rivers, a reservoir is formed. The water is drawn from this reservoir and carried through pipes to the turbines, which move thanks to the power of the water.

+ What is thermal energy?

Thermal energy is produced by work or heat. When we use a hand pump to inflate a bicycle tire, the pump becomes heated. In this case, thermal energy is produced through the transfer of mechanical energy.

+ How does NOVUS operate in the energy industry?

NOVUS helps with robust industrial products for energy measurement and control.
