Electric Power Distribution Handbook 2nd Edition Free Download Pdf

Electric Power Distribution Handbook Of the “big three” components of electrical infrastructure, distribution typically gets the least attention. In fact, a thorough, up-to-date treatment of the subject hasn’t been published in years, yet deregulation and technical changes have increased the need for better information. Filling this void, the Electric Power Distribution Handbook delivers comprehensive, cutting-edge coverage of the electrical aspects of power distribution systems. The first few chapters of this pragmatic guidebook focus on equipment-oriented information and applications such as choosing transformer connections, sizing and placing capacitors, and setting regulators. The middle portion discusses reliability and power quality, while the end tackles lightning protection, grounding, and safety. Read More →

Electrical Studies for Trades 5th Edition

Electrical Studies for Trades 5th Edition Free Download Pdf

Electrical Studies Packed with real-world examples, vivid illustrations, and the latest developments from the field, ELECTRICAL STUDIES FOR TRADES, 5th EDITION is ideal for current and future service technicians in air conditioning and refrigeration, construction, and facilities management–and anyone else who needs a practical knowledge of electricity. Extremely reader-friendly, the book begins with an overview of basic electricity concepts–rather than complex mathematical calculations. From here, you proceed directly to “must-know” information, including how to determine wire sizes and make a variety of common switch connections. Different types of electrical power panels are also examined in detail. Discussion of general wiring practices and circuit protectors, as well as an introduction to transformers and three-phase and single-phase motors, round out the comprehensive coverage. Read More →

Materials and Reliability Handbook for Semiconductor Optical and Electron Devices

Materials and Reliability Handbook for Semiconductor Optical and Electron Devices Free Download Pdf

Semiconductor Optical Electron Devices provides comprehensive coverage of reliability procedures and approaches for electron and photonic devices. These include lasers and high speed electronics used in cell phones, satellites, data transmission systems and displays. Lifetime predictions for compound semiconductor devices are notoriously inaccurate due to the absence of standard protocols. Manufacturers have relied on extrapolation back to room temperature of accelerated testing at elevated temperature. This technique fails for scaled, high current density devices. Device failure is driven by electric field or current mechanisms or low activation energy processes that are masked by other mechanisms at high temperature. Read More →

Biologically Inspired CMOS Image Sensor

A Biologically Inspired CMOS Image Sensor Free Download Pdf

Biologically Inspired CMOS Image Sensor systems are a source of inspiration in the development of small autonomous sensor nodes. The two major types of optical vision systems found in nature are the single aperture human eye and the compound eye of insects. The latter are among the most compact and smallest vision sensors. The eye is a compound of individual lenses with their own photoreceptor arrays. The visual system of insects allows them to fly with a limited intelligence and brain processing power. A CMOS image sensor replicating the perception of vision in insects is discussed and designed in this book for industrial (machine vision) and medical applications. Read More →

High Mobility SiGe Channel MOSFETs for Future CMOS Applications

Reliability of High Mobility SiGe Channel MOSFETs for Future CMOS Applications Free Download Pdf

High Mobility SiGe Channel MOSFETs Due to the ever increasing electric fields in scaled CMOS devices, reliability is becoming a showstopper for further scaled technology nodes. Although several groups have already demonstrated functional Si channel devices with aggressively scaled Equivalent Oxide Thickness (EOT) down to 5Å, a 10 year reliable device operation cannot be guaranteed anymore due to severe Negative Bias Temperature Instability.
