Power Generation Transformers Analysis, Design, and Measurement Edited by

Xose M. López-Fernández Universidade de Vigo, Spain

H. Bülent Ertan

Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey

Janusz Turowski

University of Pavia, Italy

Recent catastrophic blackouts have exposed major vulnerabilities in the existing generation, transmission, and distribution systems of transformers widely used for energy transfer, measurement, protection, and signal coupling. As a result, the reliability of the entire power system is now uncertain, and many blame severe underinvestment, aging technology, and a conservative approach to innovation. Composed of contributions from noted industry experts around the world, Transformers: Analysis, Design, and Measurement offers invaluable information to help designers and users overcome these and other challenges associated with the design, construction, application, and analysis of transformers. This book is divided into three sections to address contemporary economic, design, diagnostic, and maintenance aspects associated with power, instrument, and high-frequency transformers. This book is an essential tool for understanding and implementing solutions that will ensure improvements in the development, maintenance, and life-cycle management of optimized transformers. This will lead to enhanced safety and reliability and lower costs for the electrical supply. Illustrating the need for close cooperation between users and manufacturers of transformers, this book outlines ways to achieve many crucial power objectives. Among these, the authors focus on the growing demand for transformer miniaturization, increased transmitted power density, and use of advanced materials to meet the requirements of power materials running under higher operational frequencies. Suggesting ways to redirect resources and exploit new technologies—such as computational modeling software—this book presents relatively inexpensive, simple, ready-to-implement strategies to advance transformers, improve power system integrity, reduce environmental impact, and much more.

Instrument Engineers' Handbook Volume Three, Process Software and Digital Networks, Fourth Edition Edited by

Béla G. Lipták

Liptak Associates, Stamford, Connecticut, USA

Halit Eren

Curtin University of Technology, Bentley, Australia

Instrument Engineers' Handbook – Volume 3: Process Software and Digital Networks, Fourth Edition is the latest addition to an enduring collection that industrial automation professionals often refer to as the "bible." First published in 1970, the entire handbook is approximately 5,000 pages, designed as standalone volumes that cover the measurement (Volume 1), control (Volume 2), and software (Volume 3) aspects of automation. This fourth edition of the third volume provides an in-depth, state-of-the-art review of control software packages used in plant optimization, control, maintenance, and safety. Each updated volume of this renowned reference requires about ten years to prepare, so revised installments have been issued every decade, taking into account the numerous developments that occur from one publication to the next. Assessing the rapid evolution of automation and optimization in control systems used in all types of industrial plants, this book details the wired/wireless communications and software used. This includes the ever-increasing number of applications for intelligent instruments, enhanced networks, Internet use, virtual private networks, and integration of control systems with the main networks used by management, all of which operate in a linked global environment. This volume explores why the holistic approach to integrating process and enterprise networks is convenient and efficient, despite associated problems involving cyber and local network security, energy conservation, and other issues. It shows how firewalls must separate the business (IT) and the operation (automation technology, or AT) domains to guarantee the safe function of all industrial plants.

The book illustrates how these concerns must be addressed using effective technical solutions and proper management policies and practices. Reinforcing the fact that all industrial control systems are, in general, critically interdependent, this handbook provides a wide range of software application examples from industries including automotive, mining, renewable energy, steel, dairy, pharmaceutical, mineral processing, oil, gas, electric power, utility, and nuclear power. Topics covered include: • Advances in new displays, which help operators to more quickly assess and respond to plant conditions • Software and networks that help monitor, control, and optimize industrial processes, to determine the efficiency, energy consumption, and profitability of operations • Strategies to counteract changes in market conditions and energy and raw material costs • Techniques to fortify the safety of plant operations and the security of digital communications systems Selected Contents Process Control and Automation. ProcessControl Methods. Digital Techniques and Data Handling. Software, Programming, and Simulations. Networks, Security, and Protection. Fieldbus Networks. Process Management, Maintenance, Safety, and Reliability. Process Control and Automation Applications.

Ultrasonic Nondestructive Testing of Materials Theoretical Foundations Karl-Jörg Langenberg, René Marklein, and Klaus Mayer

Semiconductor devices and circuits are prone to potential radiation damage problems, which must be understood and combated. Written by international experts, this book explains the effects of radiation on semiconductor devices, radiation detectors, and electronic devices and components. The contributors explore emerging applications, detector technologies, circuit design techniques, new materials, and innovative system approaches. The text focuses on how the technology is being used rather than the mathematical foundations behind it. It covers CMOS radiation-tolerant circuit implementations, CMOS processing causing radiation damage, and radiation detectors, among other topics.
