Complex Behavior of Switching Power Converters (Hardcover): Chi Kong Tse Complex Behavior of Switching Power Converters (Hardcover)
Chi Kong Tse
R4,201 Discovery Miles 42 010 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Power electronics is a discipline spawned by real-life applications and evolving from the need to solve power conversion problems. Historically, system implementations or circuit topologies found widespread application long before they were thoroughly analyzed. Today, however, engineers must thoroughly understand the nonlinear behavior of a system to achieve the better design, functionality, and reliability that modern applications demand.

Complex Behavior of Switching Power Converters provides a systematic treatment of the procedures for observing, identifying, and diagnosing switching converter phenomena such as chaos and bifurcation. After a review of the fundamentals, the author presents some recent findings and discusses computer, laboratory, and modeling techniques for studying complex behaviors. The focus then moves to the nonlinear dynamics of various switching coverters. Here the author emphasizes circuit operation rather than mathematical abstraction, and whenever possibe, explains phenomena in terms of the physical circuit operation.

Knowing when and how nonlinear phenomena occur is essential in the design and operation of power electronics. With a careful balance of theory, computer techniques, and laboratory experiments, this treatment forms a practical reference for engineers and an ideal starting point for anyone who needs a basic understanding of analyzing complex behavior in power converters.

Kenneth E. Bower, Yuri A. Barbanel, Yuri G. Shreter, George W. Bohnert
R8,470 Discovery Miles 84 700 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Representing the collective effort of over 30 leading scientists in Russia and the United States, this is the first book written solely on the subject of nuclear batteries. It presents a rich historical discussion and original research on the conversion of nuclear materials into electrical power, which can then be harvested to make long-lasting, more energy efficient batteries. With this technology, power-matched supplies would last decades - even centuries - using safe, direct, long-life, stable, integrated electric power from the highest energy density source available.

Polymers, Phosphors, and Voltaics for Radioisotope Microbatteries presents the state-of-the-art in interdisciplinary research in radiochemistry, tritium storage, semiconductor fabrication and characterization, nuclear battery fabrication and testing, integration into MEMS and other electronic devices, and much more. A key feature of this book is its discussion of construction materials for miniaturized radioisotope power supplies, since progress in nuclear battery technology depends on characterization of functionally radiation-stable components. Though substantial progress has been made to solve problems of using integrated radioisotope batteries for micro- and nanoelectronics, each author has provided an authoritative assessment and has indicated where development is needed.

Research in this area has the potential to revolutionize the microelectronics industry by enabling MEMS and nanotechnology. Significant technological progress depends today on coordinated interdisciplinary research. Polymers, Phosphors, and Voltaics for Radioisotope Microbatteries contains diverse discussions of the problems of using radioactive material for microelectronic power needs and guides readers to future research in the area of long-life, high energy-density batteries.

This book addresses the design challenges in near-field wireless power transfer (WPT) systems, such as high efficiency, compact size, and long transmission range. It presents new low-profile designs for the TX/RX structures using different shapes of defected ground structures (DGS) like (H, semi-H, and spiral-strips DGS). Most near-field WPT systems depend on magnetic resonant coupling (MRC) using 3-D wire loops or helical antennas, which are often bulky. This, in turn, poses technical difficulties in their application in small electronic devices and biomedical implants. To obtain compact structures, printed spiral coils (PSCs) have recently emerged as a candidate for low-profile WPT systems. However, most of the MRC WPT systems that use PSCs have limitations in the maximum achievable efficiency due to the feeding method. Inductive feeding constrains the geometric dimensions of the main transmitting (TX)/receiving (RX) resonators, which do not achieve the maximum achievable unloaded quality factor. This book will be as of a discussion in March 2019, of interest to researchers and professionals working on WPT-related problems.
