Very simply, electromagnetic interference (EMI) costs money, reduces profits, and generally wreaks havoc for circuit designers in all industries. This book shows how the analytic tools of circuit theory can be used to simulate the coupling of interference into, and out of, any signal link in the system being reviewed. The technique is simple, systematic and accurate. It enables the design of any equipment to be tailored to meet EMC requirements.Every electronic system consists of a number of functional modules interconnected by signal links and power supply lines. Electromagnetic interference can be coupled into and out of every conductor. A review of the construction of the wiring assemblies and the functions of the signals they carry will allow critical links to be identified. Circuit modeling can be used to simulate the electromagnetic coupling mechanism of each critical link, allowing its performance to be analyzed and compared with the formal requirements. Bench testing during the development of any product will allow any interference problem to be identified and corrected, long before the manufactured unit is subjected to formal testing. Key Features: A fully outlined, systematic and dramatically simplified process of designing equipment to meet EMC requirements; Focuses on simplifications which enable electrical engineers to singularly handle EMC problems; Helps minimize time-to-market of new products and reduces the need for costly and time-consuming modifications; Outlines how general purpose test equipment (oscilloscopes and signal generators) can be used to validate and refine any model; Discusses how to use Mathcad or MATLAB® to perform analysis and assessment.
Based on a successful IEE International Vacation School series, this book aims to give an appreciation of present day high voltage transmission and distribution systems.
All the key components of HV power systems are covered from insulation systems, overhead lines, cables and bushings to switchgear and transformers. Electric power and HV transmission and distribution systems including HVDC and power electronic systems are also considered. The book gives details of design and testing techniques and of testing and measuring equipment. It provides an overview of transmission and distribution systems, technical, commercial and environmental considerations. Recent developments in testing and measuring technology are reviewed and the uses of fibrebased condition-monitoring strategies and life-management of electrical equipment are described.
The book looks at HV equipment and installation both from the point of view of the provider and the user, covering everything from specification and testing to overall system co-ordination. Dynamic changes which have taken place during the past decade are also considered, such as the effects of privatisation and market influences in the UK and abroad. The book will be ideal for engineering students, lecturers, new graduates entering the high voltage field, practising engineers and anyone wishing to extend their knowledge in this area.
This 3rd edition of High Voltage Engineering Testing describes strategic developments in the field and reflects on how they can best be managed. All the key components of high voltage and distribution systems are covered including electric power networks, UHV and HV. Distribution systems including HVDC and power electronic systems are also considered. In the book, particular consideration is given to recent developments in UHV, AC and DC transmission systems abroad. Recent developments in renewable energy techniques and environmental issues are also discussed and assessed. This new edition gives details of design and testing techniques and considers recent developments in testing and measuring technology and reviews them together with appropriate strategic technological assessments of some applications.
The book also looks at UHV, HV and distribution systems both from the point of view of the provider and the user, covering everything from specification and testing to overall system co-ordination. The ongoing dynamic changes which have taken place during the past decade are considered, moving on from the early stages of privatisation and market influences in the UK and abroad, to current strategies aimed at optimising the value of network assets and the effective utilisation of alternative renewable energy sources within network frameworks.
There are many 'Electric Circuits' books on the market but this unique Understandable Electric Circuits book provides an understandable and effective introduction to the fundamentals of DC/AC circuits. It covers current, voltage, power, resistors, capacitors, inductors, impedance, admittance, dependent/independent sources, the basic circuit laws/rules (Ohm's law, KVL/KCL, voltage/current divider rules), series/parallel and wye/ delta circuits, methods of DC/AC analysis (branch current and mesh/node analysis), the network theorems (superposition, Thevenin's/Norton's theorems, maximum power transfer, Millman's and substitution theorems), transient analysis, RLC circuits and resonance, mutual inductance, transformers, and more.
This book presents material in a clear and easy-to-understand manner. All important concepts, rules and formulas are highlighted after the explanation and are also summarised at the end of each chapter, making it easy to locate important facts and to study more effectively. The laboratory experiments at the end of each chapter are convenient for doing hands-on practice. These will motivate readers to master the circuit theory, especially college and university students or self-learners in this field.
The English version of this book continues in the spirit of its successful Chinese version, which was published by Higher Education Press (the largest and most prominent publisher of educational books in China) in 2005 and reprinted in 2009.
