Permanent Magnet and Electromechanical Devices: Materials, Analysis, and Applications

Permanent Magnet and Electromechanical Devices: Materials, Analysis, and Applications
$403.45

The book provides both the theoretical and the applied background needed to predict magnetic fields. The theoretical presentation is reinforced with over 60 solved examples of practical engineering applications such as the design of magnetic components like solenoids, which are electromagnetic coils that are moved by electric currents and activate other devices such as circuit breakers. Other design applications would be for permanent magnet structures such as bearings and couplings, which are hardware mechanisms used to fashion a temporary connection between two wires. This book is written for use as a text or reference by researchers, engineers, professors, and students engaged in the research, development, study, and manufacture of permanent magnets and electromechanical devices. It can serve as a primary or supplemental text for upper level courses in electrical engineering on electromagnetic theory, electronic and magnetic materials, and electromagnetic engineering.

Proceedings of the 2011 International Conference on Informatics, Cybernetics, and Computer Engineering (Icce2011) November 19-20, 2011, Melbourne, Aus
$385.28

The volume includes a set of selected papers extended and revised from the International Conference on Informatics, Cybernetics, and Computer Engineering. An information system (IS) – or application landscape – is any combination of information technology and people’s activities using that technology to support operations, management. In a very broad sense, the term information system is frequently used to refer to the interaction between people, algorithmic processes, data and technology. In this sense, the term is used to refer not only to the information and communication technology (ICT) an organization uses, but also to the way in which people interact with this technology in support of business processes. Some make a clear distinction between information systems, and computer systems ICT, and business processes. Information systems are distinct from information technology in that an information system is typically seen as having an ICT component. It is mainly concerned with the purposeful utilization of information technology. Information systems are also different from business processes. Information systems help to control the performance of business processes. Computer engineering, also called computer systems engineering, is a discipline that integrates several fields of electrical engineering and computer science required to develop computer systems. Computer engineers usually have training in electronic engineering, software design, and hardware-software integration instead of only software engineering or electronic engineering. Computer engineers are involved in many hardware and software aspects of computing, from the design of individual microprocessors, personal computers, and supercomputers, to circuit design. This field of engineering not only focuses on how computer systems themselves work, but also how they integrate into the larger picture. ICCE 2011 Volume 2 is to provide a forum for researchers, educators, engineers, and government officials in

Practical Field Robotics: A Systems Approach

Practical Field Robotics: A Systems Approach
$155.45

Practical Field Robotics: A Systems Approach is an introductory book in the area of field robotics. It approaches the subject with a systems design methodology, showing the reader every important decision made in the process of planning, designing, making and testing a field robot. This book covers electronic, electrical, mechanical, control and software disciplines as needed. It begins with a discussion of industrial field robots and then moves on to cover the details of a practical machine that can mow your lawn. Unlike commercial devices that mow random patterns, this one "knows where it is." The robot is also cost effective so that the reader may follow the logic, understand the steps and carry out its construction. This is a book of design and implementation practice, rather than a theoretical treatment of field robotics. It provides the planning tools and presents detailed descriptions of the working parts of a successful machine. We ask you to keep in mind that such a machine is not a toy and can be potentially dangerous to construct and use. Caution and safety glasses are a must. Key features: – Takes a practical approach to field robotics, presenting the design and implementation of a robot from start to end – Provides multiple robot examples including those used in nuclear service, underground coal mining and mowing – Bridges the gap between existing mathematically based texts and the real work that goes on in research labs all over the world – Establishes a structured approach to thinking about hardware and software design – Includes problems and is accompanied by a website providing supporting videos and additional problems Practical Field Robotics: A Systems Approach is a must have implementation guide for researchers and practitioners working on robotics projects, and undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical, industrial and electrical engineering, and computer science.

Modelling and Controlling Hydropower Plants

Modelling and Controlling Hydropower Plants
$152.30

Hydroelectric power stations are a major source of electricity around the world; understanding their dynamics is crucial to achieving good performance. The electrical power generated is normally controlled by individual feedback loops on each unit. The reference input to the power loop is the grid frequency deviation from its set point, thus structuring an external frequency control loop. The book discusses practical and well-documented cases of modelling and controlling hydropower stations, focused on a pumped storage scheme based in Dinorwig, North Wales. These accounts are valuable to specialist control engineers who are working in this industry. In addition, the theoretical treatment of modern and classic controllers will be useful for graduate and final year undergraduate engineering students. This book reviews SISO and MIMO models, which cover the linear and nonlinear characteristics of pumped storage hydroelectric power stations. The most important dynamic features are discussed. The verification of these models by hardware in the loop simulation is described. To show how the performance of a pumped storage hydroelectric power station can be improved, classical and modern controllers are applied to simulated models of Dinorwig power plant, that include PID, Fuzzy approximation, Feed-Forward and Model Based Predictive Control with linear and hybrid prediction models.
