Title:Quantitative Recombination and Transport Properties in Silicon from Dynamic Luminescence [electronic resource]
Author(s): Johannes Giesecke
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Harmonically modulated luminescence combines the advantages of highly sensitive luminescence metrology with an immediate dynamic access to carrier lifetime in semiconductors at a minimum of required a priori information. Thepresent work covers theore tical, conceptual, and experimental advances of the harmonically modulated luminescence technique. Theoretical constraints of dynamic carrier lifetime techniques are rigorously elaborated, including the proofof their differential nature and their characte ristics at nonuniform spatial distributions of recombination rate. The pathway toward a unified, reliable, and versatile harmonically modulated carrier lifetime metrology is delineated -covering the entire solar cell production chain from bare ingots to f inished solar cells. Accurate access to miscellaneous relevant recombination and transport properties via harmonically modulated luminescence is demonstrated andexperimentally validated, embracing injection-dependent carrier lifetimes at extremely low inj ection conditions, a spatially resolved carrier lifetime calibration of luminescence images, and accurate approaches to both net dopantconcentration and minority carrier mobility

Title:Physics of Societal Issues [electronic resource] : Calculations on National Security, Environment, and Energy
Author(s): David Hafemeister
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides the reader with essential tools needed to analyze complex societal issues and demonstrates the transition from physics to modern-day laws and treaties. This second edition features new equation-orientedmaterial and extensive data s ets drawing upon current information from experts in their fields. Problems to challenge the reader and extend discussion are presented on three timely issues: National Security:Weapons, Offense, Defense, Verification, Nuclear Proliferation, Terrorism Environment: Air/Water, Nuclear, Climate Change, EM Fields/Epidemiology Energy: Current Energy Situation, Buildings, SolarBuildings, Renewable Energy, Enhanced End-Use Efficiency, Transportation, Economics Praise for the first edition: This insight is n eeded in Congress and the Executive Branch. Hafemeister, a former Congressional fellow with wideWashington experience, has written a book for physicists, chemists and engineers who want to learn science and policy on weapons, energy, and the environment. Scientists who want to make a difference will want this book. RichardScribner, first Director, Congressional Science and Engineering Fellow Program, AAAS Hafemeister shows how much one can understand about nuclear weapons and missile issues through simpl e back-of-the-envelope calculations. He alsoprovides compact explanations of the partially successful attempts that have been made over the past 60 years to control these weapons of mass destruction. Hopefully, Physics of Societal Issues will help interes t a new generation ofphysicists in continuing this work. Frank von Hippel, Professor, Princeton, former Assistant Director, National Security, White House, OSTP Energy policy must be quantitative. People who don't calculate economic tradeoffs oftenchampi on simplistic hardware. The solution is more... nuclear power, or electric cars, or photovoltaics, etc. Some simple physics will s

Note:Hydroelectric power stations are a major source of electricity around the world understanding their dynamics is crucial to achieving good performance. Modelling and Controlling Hydropower Plants discusses practical andwell-documented cases of modelli ng and controlling hydropower station modelling and control, focussing on a pumped storage scheme based in Dinorwig, North Wales. Single-input-single-output and multiple-input-multiple-output models,which cover the linear and nonlinear characteristics of pump-storage hydroelectric power stations, are reviewed. The most important dynamic features are discussed, and the verification of these models by hardware in the loop simulationis described. To show how the performance of a pump-storage hydroelectric po wer station can be improved, classical and modern controllers are applied to simulated models of the Dinorwig power plant. These include PID, fuzzyapproximation, feed-forward and model-based predictive control with linear and hybrid prediction models. Mod elling and Controlling Hydropower Plants will be of value to control engineers working in industry. In addition, thetheoretical treatment of modern and classic controllers will be useful for academic researchers and graduate students in control and power engineering. Advances in Industrial Control aims to report and encourage the transfer oftechnology in control engineering. The rapid development of control technology has an impact on all areas of the control discipline. The series offers an opportunity f or researchers to present an extended exposition of new work in allaspects of industrial control

Sun luminance measurementsserve as data to cal culate typical changes in the daily, monthly, and annual variability characteristics of daylight. Climate-based sky luminance patterns are used as models in predicting daylighting calculation and computer programsapplied in architecture and building desig n. Historically, daylight science and daylighting technology has prioritized photometric methods of measurements, calculation, and graphical tools aimed at predicting or evaluating thedaylighting of architectural design alternatives. However, due to a hei ghtened awareness of general health and well-being, sunlight exposure and freedom from visual discomfort while undertaking visual tasks are now equally prioritized.Therefore, in order to assure optimal environmental quality, daylighting technology must be based on sound science.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Both global warming and oil shortage can be solved by controlled fusion, a clean power source that will serve mankind for millennia. The idea of hydrogen fusion as well as its difficulties are presented in non-technicallanguage to dispel the notion t hat fusion is always 50 years away. This book also summarizes the evidence for climate change and explains the principles of both fossil and green energy sources to show that fusion is the bestalternative for central-station power in the near term as well as the far future. Praise for An Indispensable Truth: How Fusion Power Can Save the Planet: In this study Professor Chen outlines the underlying physics, recent progressin achieving advanced plasmas and magnetic confinement, and hopes for the future. He recognizes the difficulties that remain in engineering a fusion reactor, but he remains optimistic regarding ultimate success, yet fearful of theconsequences were we to fail.- James R. Schlesinger, former Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission Director, Centr al Intelligence Agency Secretary of Defense and Secretary of Energy With lots of detail and examples, Chen brings thetechnical topic of fusion to life, making the book a great read for scientists and nonscientists alike.- Representative Rush Holt (D-NJ) P rofessor Chen has opened the door to energy survival for our globe. His insightful analysismakes the case for fusion energy, and he conveys both its complexity and its promise. This book is a must for all those who are concerned about the energy future of our species.- Raymond L Orbach, former Undersecretary for Science,U.S. Department of Energy This is an important book for anyone who wishes to understand the greatest challenge we face. Frank Chen makes the science of fusion and energy clear, compelling, and hugely enjoyable.- Steven Cowley,Director and CEO, Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority

Title:Nonlinear Power Flow Control Design [electronic resource] : Utilizing Exergy, Entropy, Static and Dynamic Stability, and Lyapunov Analysis

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Nonlinear Powerflow Control Design presents an innovative control system design process motivated by renewable energy electric grid integration problems. The concepts developed result from the convergence of three research anddevelopment goals: to c reate a unifying metric to compare the value of different energy sources coal-burning power plant, wind turbines, solar photovoltaics, etc. to be integrated into the electric power grid and to replacethe typical metric of costs/profit to develop a new nonlinear control tool that applies power flow control, thermodynamics, and complex adaptive systems theory to the energy grid in a consistent way and to apply collectiverobotics theories to the creation of high-performance teams of people and key indivi duals in order to account for human factors in controlling and selling power into a distributed, decentralized electric power grid. All three of thesegoals have important concepts in common: exergy flow, limit cycles, and balance between competing power f lows. In place of the typical zero-sum, stability vs. performance, linear controller design process, the authors propose a uniqueset of criteria to design controllers for a class of nonlinear systems with respect to both performance and stability, and sea mlessly integrating information theoretic concepts. A combination of thermodynamics with Hamiltonian systemsprovides the theoretical foundation which is then realized in a series of connected case studies. It allows the process of control design to be vie wed as a power flow control problem, balancing the power flowing into a system againstthat being dissipated within it and dependent on the power being stored in it an interplay between kinetic and potential energies. Highlights of several of the case stu dies feature current renewable energy problems such as thefuture of electric power grid control, wind turbine load alleviation, and novel control designs for micro-grids that incorpo
