Switching power supply design

Классическая, по праву считающаяся одной из лучших, книга по разработке импульсных источников питания. Смело может быть рекомендована на роль настольной книги инженера. Содержит массу примеров расчётов, без излишнего теоретизирования.

Wind Turbine Technology

Highlighting the features, obstacles, and merits of wind energy, Wind Turbine know-how promises a whole advent and assessment of wind turbine expertise and wind farm layout and improvement. It identifies the serious parts of a wind turbine, describes the sensible features of every part, and examines the most recent functionality parameters and procurement requisites for those parts.

Transformer Design Principles: With Applications to Core-Form Power Transformers, Second Edition

Updating and reorganizing the dear info within the first version to augment logical improvement, Transformer layout ideas: With functions to Core-Form strength Transformers, moment variation is still curious about the fundamental actual techniques at the back of transformer layout and operation. beginning with first rules, this booklet develops the reader’s knowing of the reason at the back of layout practices by way of illustrating how uncomplicated formulae and modeling systems are derived and used.

Example text

Each category is further subdivided based on upwind rotor configuration, downwind rotor configuration, high tip speed ratio, Savonius rotor design, windmill design, and wind wheel design. 3 Modern Wind Turbines Modern types of wind turbines including the HAWT and VAWT machines will be discussed with emphasis on applications and performance capabilities. 5 Farm type and Dutch type wind turbines. foundation, tower, nacelle enclosure housing a generator, gearbox, yaw motor and other electrical mechanical accessories, rotor, control system, and transformer.

These small turbines allow the kinetic energy of the wind to be captured by the unique and highly efficient vertical blade design configuration. 2 Wind Turbines Operating from Ocean Surfaces Scientific data from NASA’s QuickSCAT satellite reveal that we can harness ocean wind energy to generate electricity. The maps generated by the NASA satellite can aid in planning and locating offshore wind farms for producing electrical energy. High-speed ocean winds are considered ideal for generating large amounts of electricity at lower cost.

However, the cost of producing wind power has dropped four-fold since 1980, based on Electric Power Research Institute estimates. A wind turbine normally sits about 30 stories above the ground at the hub, where three 130-ft blades are connected to the tower head. Although maintenance is rarely required after careful installation, an ordinary maintenance or erection technician is not qualified to perform the required tasks. Turbine installation and maintenance require intelligence, quick thinking, split-second decision making, 6 ◾ Wind Turbine Technology stamina, strong knees, and the ability to function at dizzying heights.
