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

Title:Critical Regimes of Two-Phase Flows with a Polydisperse Solid Phase [electronic resource]
Author(s): Eugene Barsky
Date:2010
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book brings to light peculiarities of the formation of critical regimes of two-phase flows with a polydisperse solid phase. A definition of entropy is formulated on the basis of statistical analysis of these peculiarities.The physical meaning of entropy and its correlation with other parameters determining two-phase flows are clearly defined. The interrelations and main differences between this entropy and the thermodynamic one are revealed. The mainregularities of two-phase flows both in critic al and in other regimes are established using the notion of entropy. This parameter serves as a basis for a deeper insight into the physics of the process and for the development ofexhaustive techniques of mass exchange estimation in such flows. The book is intended for graduate and postgraduate students of engineering studying two-phase flows, and to scientists and engineers engaged in specific problems of suchfields as chemical technology, mineral dressing, modern ceramics, microelectronics, pharmacolog y, power engineering, thermal engineering, etc. using flows with solid particles in their respective production methods

Note:Studying the complex physical systems of stellar jets necessitates the incorporation of nonlinear effects which occur on a wide variety of length and timescales. One of the primary methods used to study the physics of jets isnumerical simulations tha t apply high performance computing techniques. Such techniques are also required for analysing the huge modern astrophysical datasets. This book examines those computing techniques. It is a collection of thelectures from the fifth and final school of the JETSET network, Jets From Young Stars V: High Performance Computing in Astrophysics. It begins with an introduction to parallel programming techniques, with an emphasis on MessagePassing Interface (MPI), before it goes on to review grid technology techniq ues and offer a practical introduction to Virtual Observatory. The second half of the book, then, is devoted to applications of high performance computingtechniques, including 3D radiation transfer, to jet and star formation processes.

Title:The Theory of Laser Materials Processing [electronic resource] Heat and Mass Transfer in Modern Technology
Author(s): John Dowden
Date:2009
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The purpose of the book is to show how general principles can be used to obtain insight into laser processes. The principles used may come from fundamental physical theory or from direct observation of experimental results, butan understanding of the general characteristics of the behaviour of a process is essential for intelligent investigation and implementation, whether the approach is experimental, observational, numerical or analytical. The last twohave a special value since the associated costs can be relatively low and may be used as a starting point for more expensive techniques. The construction of simple models whose underlying principles are easy to see is therefore ofspecial value, and an understanding of their strengths and limitations i s essential. The applications considered in detail are cutting, keyhole welding, drilling, arc and hybrid laser-arc welding, hardening, cladding, forming andcutting, but the general principles have a very wide application metallurgical aspects are conside red, as are femtosecond interactions with metals. The book begins with a discussion of the mathematical formulation of some relevantclasses of physical ideas, and ends with an introduction to comprehensive numerical simulation. Although all the examples c onsidered have the common feature that the source of power is a laser, many of the principles and methods applyto thermal modelling in a variety of different fields and at many different levels of power

Title:Rugged Free Energy Landscapes [electronic resource] : Common Computational Approaches to Spin Glasses, Structural Glasses and Biological Macromolecules
Author(s): Wolfhard Janke
Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This collection of lectures and tutorial reviews by renowned experts focusses on the common computational approaches in use to unravel the static and dynamical behaviour of complex physical systems at the interface of physics,chemistry and biology. P aradigmatic examples of condensed matter physics are spin and structural glasses and protein folding, as well as their aggregation and adsorption to hard and soft surfaces, in physico-chemical biology. Among themost prominent joint key features of the sys tems considered in this volume are rugged free-energy landscapes. These generate metastability and are often responsible for very slow dynamics allowing for the system to be trapped in one ofthe many available local minima. The challenge set forth by the authors of this volume is to provide a common basis and technical language for the (computational) technology transfer between the fields and systems considered

Note:A team of outstanding scientists in the field of modern magnetic nanotechnologies illustrates the state of the art in several areas of advanced magneto-electronic devices, magnetic micro-electromechanical systems and high densityinformation storage t echnologies. The physics and chemistry of nano-scale systems have made rapid advances and there are real prospects of translating exciting scientific findings into a new generation of processes and high technologyproducts with a potential impact on severa l industrial sectors. In particular the development of nano-structured magnetic materials plays a leading role in the increasing miniaturization of devices with superior performances. Theapplication areas considered are: i) magneto-electronics, where the control of electron spins in magnetic hetero-structures offers new and improved functionalities in devices of integrated digital electronics. Magnetic randomaccess memories, MRAM are among the principal applications for new non-volatile RAM with fast dyna mics, toward the pico-, femto-second range. ii) magnetic MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems), which are the integration ofmechanical and electro/ferromagnetic elements (micro-actuators and sensors) with conventional electronics MEMS, promise a revolut ion in several product categories. In fact the proposed integration enables the development of smartproducts, where sensors can gather information from the environment by measuring thermal, magnetic, electric, mechanical, biological chemical, optical char acteristics and the electronic section processes the information and theactuator promotes the action realizing a complete control of the environment. iii) Magnetic recording is a leading technology in the information storage domain and the most relevant a pplication in the field of magnetics, showingsurprising continuous progress over several decades towards the limit of terabit per square inch of areal density.>

Note:Ion implantation is one of the key processing steps in silicon integrated circuit technology. Some integrated circuits require up to 17 implantation steps and circuits are seldom processed with less than 10 implantation steps.Controlled doping at con trolled depths is an essential feature of implantation. Ion beam processing can also be used to improve corrosion resistance, to harden surfaces, to reduce wear and, in general, to improve materials properties.This book presents the physics and materials science of ion implantation and ion beam modification of materials. It covers ion-solid interactions used to predict ion ranges, ion straggling and lattice disorder. Also treated areshallow-junction formation and slicing silicon with hydrogen ion beams. T opics important for materials modification, such as ion-beam mixing, stresses, and sputtering, are also described
