Electrical Energy Systems
Call Number: TK1001 E37 2000
Publication Date: 2000
The growing importance of renewable energy sources, control methods and mechanisms, and system restoration has created a need for a concise, comprehensive text that covers the concepts associated with electric power and energy systems. Electrical Energy Systems fills that need, providing an up-to-date introduction to this dynamic field. The author begins with a discussion of the modern electric power system, centering on the technical aspects of power generation, transmission, distribution, and utilization. After providing an overview of electric power and machine theory fundamentals, he offers a practical treatment-focused on applications-of the major topics required for a solid background in the field, including synchronous machines, transformers, and electric motors. He also furnishes a unique look at activities related to power systems, such as power flow and control, stability, state estimation, and security assessment. A discussion of present and future directions of the electrical energy field rounds out the text. With its broad, up-to-date coverage, emphasis on applications, and integrated MATLAB scripts, Electrical Energy Systems provides an ideal, practical introduction to the field-perfect for self-study or short-course work for professionals in related disciplines.
Electrical Energy Conversion and Transport
Call Number: TK1001 K18 2005
Publication Date: 2005
A powerful new approach to learning a classical engineering subject: active learning Electrical Energy Conversion and Transport presents a revolutionary computer-assisted teaching method designed to accelerate students' mastery of basic concepts of electric energy conversion and transport through interactive involvement with the material. The active-learning approach enables students to tackle and solve complicated problems previously thought too difficult at the introductory level. Computers provide immediate feedback enabling a seamless integration of theory and application. Freed from the need to deliver extensive lectures, instructors can now outline the steps of each analysis, then move about the classroom offering guidance, answering questions as students develop equations and reach conclusions. Important features of this new learning system include: An interactive approach using computers to develop operational parameters Computer-assisted derivation of motor and transmission-line operation Use of Mathcad, MATLAB , and PSpice throughout for problem solving Thorough discussions of contemporary issues such as electronic control of motors and the environmental impact of power generation An ideal self-study reference and introductory course textbook, Electrical Energy Conversion and Transport is essential for the training of engineers who will be able to use modern computational techniques to analyze electric systems. It is also an excellent guide for professionals who want to get up to speed with a computer-based analysis of electrical energy conversion and transport.

Renewable energy resources : basic principles and applications
Call Number: TJ808 T623 2005
Publication Date: 2005
Research in natural products has advanced tremendously through the fields of chemistry, life, food and material sciences. Comaprisons of natural products form microorganisms, lower eukaryotes, animals, higher plants and marine organisms are now well documented. Natural products are ubiquitous in our everyday lives. They are active constitutents of many medicines, vitamns, food additives, flavours and fragrances, agrochemicals and pesticides used for plant protection. Most of the natural products are optically active. Numerous universities offer an MSc course on natural products. However, there is no comprehensive book for students on various topics covered in these syllabi. This text aims to provide an easy to read overview of the subject. Each chapter includes general introduction, nomenclature occurrence, isolation, detection, structure elucidation both by degradation and spectroscopic techniques, biosynthesis, synthesis, biological activity and commercial applications, if any, of the compounds mentioned. Key features include: source providing an overview of natural products; questions; reference for future reading; and general introduction of natural products and appendix containing introduction to chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques.
Thermodynamics of Energy Conversion and Transport
Call Number: ebooks
Publication Date: 2000
Scientists and engineers are nowadays faced with the problem of optimizing complex systems subject to constraints from, ecology, economics, and thermodynamics. It is chiefly to the last of these that this volume is addressed. Intended for physicists, chemists, and engineers, the book uses examples from solar, thermal, mechanical, chemical, and environmental engineering to focus on the use of thermodynamic criteria for optimizing energy conversion and transmission. The early chapters centre on solar energy conversion, the second section discusses the transfer and conversion of chemical energy, while the concluding chapters deal with geometric methods in thermodynamics.
