The development of power semiconductors with greater ratings and improved characteristics has meant that the power industry has become more willing to develop new converter configurations. These new configurations take advantage of the higher controllability and switching frequencies of the new devices. The next few years will decide which of the proposed technologies will dominate future power transmission systems.
Flexible Power Transmission is a comprehensive guide to the high voltage direct current (HVDC) options available, helping the reader to make informed decisions for designing future power transmission systems. The book includes:
a full description of the principles and components in existing converter technology, as well as alternative proposals for self-commutating conversion; A review of the state of power semiconductors suited to HVDC transmission and present proposals for multi-level HVDC transmission.
a detailed overview of the flexible HVDC methods for improving controllability and increasing power transfer capability in electrical power systems.
up-to-date information on thyrisistor-based HVDC technology.
coverage of new pulse width modulation (PWM) transmission technology and multi-level voltage source conversion (VSC) and current source conversion (CSC).
An excellent reference for professional power engineers, Flexible Power Transmission is also a useful guide for power system researchers as well as lecturers and students in power systems and power electronics disciplines.
Cyber Crime Investigator's Field Guide, Second Edition In the past 30 years, growth in the area of data communications has been phenomenal, to say the least. During the Vietnam War, one of my duty stations was on an island in the China Sea. I was part of a signal intelligence group, intercepting and decoding wartime communications traffic. We did our best to decode and analyze the information we... XML Programming Using the Microsoft XML Parser
XML Programming Using the Microsoft XML Parser is written for programmers interested in XML development using Microsoft technologies. Coupling valuable discussion of the Microsoft XML parser, Windows platform, and XML development software with the numerous core XML technologies, including XSLT, XPATH, SAX, DOM, XML Schema, and SOAP,...
Beatrice Ojakangas brings to life the cuisines and customs of Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark, countries that share borders and bounty. Danes lead with smørrebrød (an open-faced sandwich), which may be topped with cheese, green pepper, and sliced fresh strawberries. Finns specialize in earthy, chewy whole grain bread....
