Investment Grade Energy Audit (Hardcover): Shirley J. Hansen, James W. Brown Investment Grade Energy Audit (Hardcover)
Shirley J. Hansen, James W. Brown
R1,857 Discovery Miles 18 570 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book was written to give energy-involved professionals the tools they need to take their energy audits to the next level, and use them to accurately predict a building's future energy use and true savings potential. Going beyond the conventional energy audit, which can lead to projections which are frequently off by as much as 20%, this book provides detailed guidelines on how to use the new tool, the investment grade audit (IGA), which enables prediction of savings with much greater accuracy. Building on the traditional audit, the IGA requires the addition of a "risk assessment component" which evaluates conditions in a specific building and/or process and reduces the level of uncertainty as to how proposed energy efficiency measures will really behave over time. The authors have covered every aspect of the IGA, including risk management, the "people" factor, measurement and verification, financing issues, report presentation guidelines, and master planning strategies.

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.

Alternatives to Conventional Food Processing (Hardcover, 2nd New edition): Andrew Proctor Alternatives to Conventional Food Processing (Hardcover, 2nd New edition)
Andrew Proctor
R4,796 Discovery Miles 47 960 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Traditional thermal and freezing processing techniques have been effective in maintaining a safe high quality food supply. However, increasing energy costs and the desire to purchase environmentally responsible products have been a stimulus for the development of alternative technologies. Furthermore, some products can undergo quality loss at high temperatures or freezing, which can be avoided by many alternative processing methods. This second edition of Alternatives to Conventional Food Processing provides a review of the current major technologies that reduce energy cost and reduce environmental impact while maintaining food safety and quality. New technologies have been added and relevant legal issues have been updated. Each major technology available to the food industry is discussed by leading international experts who outline the main principles and applications of each. The degree to which they are already in commercial use and developments needed to extend their use further are addressed. This updated reference will be of interest to academic and industrial scientists and engineers across disciplines in the global food industry and in research, and to those needing information in greener or more sustainable technologies.

Regenerating the Novel - Gender and Genre in Woolf, Forster, Sinclair, and Lawrence (Hardcover): James J. Miracky Regenerating the Novel - Gender and Genre in Woolf, Forster, Sinclair, and Lawrence (Hardcover)
James J. Miracky
R2,225 Discovery Miles 22 250 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days


The Regen(d)eration of the British Modern Novel is a study of the ways in which the cultural forces and discourses of gender inflect the practice and theory of three modernist British novelists, E.M. Forster, May Sinclair and D. H. Lawrence. Building on previously explored interconnections between gender, theory and formal innovations in Virginia Woolf's novel writing, especially in Orlando, the author goes on to explore Forster's 'queered' use of fantasy, Sinclair's representation of 'manly genius' in both male and female streams of consciousness, and Lawrence's quest for the novel of 'phallic consciousness' as three diverse examples of how literary modernism wrestled with the 'gender crisis' of the early twentieth-century.

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.
