CENELEC 50128 and IEC 62279 Standards
The railway sector is subject to varying normative and legal systems across different countries. The CENELEC 50128 standard and its international version IEC 62279 are necessary for the realization of software applications within this sector.
This book is dedicated to the 2011 version of the CENELEC 50128 standard, which defines the implementation of techniques and methods and focuses on manageme...
Power Electronics Applied to Industrial Systems and Transports 1
Synthetic Methodology to Converters and Components Technology
Power electronics is based on the switching operating mode of semiconductor components. On this basis, the concepts of type (voltage or current) and reversibility of interconnected sources make it possible to apply a methodology for the synthesis of various types of converters.
Here the author presents the major types of components available, always from a user’s point of view, with the gate driv...
Power Electronics Applied to Industrial Systems and Transports 2
Power Converters and their Control
Power electronics is the study of switching semiconductor components in order to control the flow of electrical energy. On this basis, the concepts of source categories (voltage or current) and their potential reversibilities make it possible to apply a methodology for the synthesis of various kinds of converters.
In this volume, the author provides an overview of electronic power converters (DC/...
Power Electronics Applied to Industrial Systems and Transports 3
Switching Power Supplies
Some power converters are specifically designed for supplying various pieces of equipment (such as microprocessor boards) with a constant voltage. As a consequence, these filtering requirements involve the use of auxiliary passive components (coils and capacitors). This is one of the key parts of the subjects discussed in this book.
Moreover, this volume deals with other technical aspects of swit...
Discrete Element Method to Model 3D Continuous Materials
Discrete Element Model and Simulation of Continuous Materials Behavior Set – Volume 1
Complex behavior models (plasticity, crack, visco-elascticity) are facing several theoretical difficulties in determining the behavior law at the continuous (macroscopic) scale. When homogenization fails to give the right behavior law, a solution is to simulate the material at a mesoscale using the discrete element model (DEM) in order to directly simulate a set of discrete properties that are res...
From Big Data to Smart Data
Advances in Information Systems Set – Volume 1
This books embodies a pragmatic approach to the topic of Big Data (the what it is) and Smart Data (the what for). The author explores the relationship between the two concepts by comparing and contrasting them in the context of a connected world where information technologies are perpetually evolving.
By defining Big Data and Smart Data through the use concrete examples, the author demystifies t...
Plasma Etching Processes for Interconnect Realization in VLSI
