Our current efficiency improvement program targets SEK 3 billion in efficiency improvements by 2020 to strengthen competitiveness and mitigate some of the annual cost inflation.
We do note the current efficiency ratio is acceptable and still in-line with management's target of less than 30 percent," it said.
This multi-colored LED based on the NBE-T-CQDs demonstrated high color-purity (FWHM of 30-39 nm), high maximum luminance (1882-4762 cd m−2), and current efficiency of 1.22-5.11 cd A-1, rivalling the well-developed inorganic QDs-based LEDs.
And if you have an older system that was built before current efficiency standards, you could be spending more than needed on heating your home.
However, in practical applications, the use of the system may be limited due to the low current efficiency and mass transfer constraints due to the formation of diffusion layer.
It can be shown from the current efficiency and luminance plots of devices T1-T4 and device A and R as given in Figures 7 and 8, respectively, that, out of all the devices given in Table 3, the red tandem device R with CGL layer consisting of Al/LiF/C70/CoPc shows the best performance in terms of current efficiency and luminance with respect to single emitter device A.
The optimization of current efficiency is shown in Figure 6.
The instantaneous current efficiency (ICE) for the anodic oxidation was calculated from the values of COD using
The rebound effect can explain some of the difference, but the magnitudes are large enough to raise important questions about whether many current efficiency forecasts are overly optimistic.
The authority also plans to enhance the current efficiency of the commercial registry to provide advanced services in trade and industry.
The point was that current efficiency needed to be measured in order to determine what impact serialization "solutions" were going to have on operating efficiency going forward.
