Renewable and Efficient Electric Power Systems

Buy
Engineering for sustainability is an emerging theme for the twenty-first century, and the need for more environmentally benign electric power systems is a critical part of this new thrust. Renewable energy systems that take advantage of energy sources that won’t diminish over time and are independent of fluctuations in price and availability are playing an ever-increasing role in modern power systems. Wind farms in the United States and Europe have become the fastest growing source of electric power; solar-powered photovoltaic systems are entering the marketplace; fuel cells that will generate electricity without pollution are on the horizon. Moreover, the newest fossil-fueled power plants approach twice the efficiency of the old coal burners that they are replacing while emitting only a tiny fraction of the pollution.

There are compelling reasons to believe that the traditional system of large, central power stations connected to their customers by hundreds or thousands of miles of transmission lines will likely be supplemented and eventually replaced with cleaner, smaller plants located closer to their loads. Not only do such distributed generation systems reduce transmission line losses and costs, but the potential to capture and utilize waste heat on site greatly increases their overall efficiency and economic advantages. Moreover, distributed generation systems offer increased reliability and reduced threat of massive and widespread power failures of the sort that blacked out much of the northeastern United States in the summer of 2003.

Classical multiple-view geometry studies the reconstruction of a static scene observed by a rigidly moving camera. However, in many real-world applications the scene may undergo much more complex dynamical changes. For instance, the scene may consist of multiple moving objects (e.g., a traffic scene) or articulated motions (e.g., a walking human)...

Mixed-Signal Layout Generation Concepts (The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science)
Mixed-Signal Layout Generation Concepts (The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science)
Layout generation is an important topic in IC design. For digital circuits a lot of research has been conducted in this area, resulting in a large variety of books and layout generation tools. However, with the ever increasing frequencies, we are facing now significant analog types of artifacts in the IC, introduced during the...
